I need to support printing from my Xamarin.Forms app, on all XF-supported platforms, including Windows 8.1, WinPhone 8.1 and Windows UWP. The material to print will include formatted text and small images.
I am happy to generate a PDF of the material to print, but is there support included in Syncfusion for printing a PDF across the different XF-supported platforms? Or if not, is there a simple way of printing a PDF from a dependency service for each platform?

Syncfusion supports generating PDF documents in Xamarin.Forms. Please find the documentation from the below link http://help.syncfusion.com/file-formats/pdf/working-with-xamarin
At, present, we do not have support for printing PDF documents from Xamarin.Forms. We are working on to create a simple work around sample to achieve your requirement and update you the details once creating the sample.

Do you have an estimate of when this sample may be available?

We have created the workaround sample to print the PDF document in Android platform and we have used the below web service to render the PDF document.
