I have a problem that Adobe does not have an answer for.  I have a completed photo that I want to print but the view in the print module is not the same as in the develop or library module.   The final print looks just like it does in the print module, so it is not the printer its the computer view.   The print module view is undersaturated and less vibrant than the develop module.   No problem between Library and Develop.  I spoke with Adobe and have not gotten an answer yet.  The upper view is from the library module, the lower is the printer module view.

It depends on the quality of the printer how similar it looks in the Library / Develop module and in the Print module. The fact that the final print looks just like it does in the print module is actually intended and a good sign. Do you use ICC profiles? What are the color management settings like?

If I increase the saturation and vibrance in the develop module by 25 it looks oversaturated in the develop module but good in the print module and then the final print looks good.   I don't use ICC profiles and it doesnt matter which monitor I use whether from a laptop or 32 inch monitor.

OK, if this is enough for you ... You can achieve the best printing results by using ICC profiles.

It's a bug. Make sure to uncheck the zoom to fill button.

I can confirm this behavior and it is a bug that's been reported. 

The good news is, the Print Module is really only for FPO; and there's no soft proofing. But yeah, the differences shouldn't be this dramatic and Adobe knows about it. Ignore the preview in Print and print a way.
