print from standard sap pdf viewer ?

Since we have very specific fonts installed in sap which are not always installed in windows or apple machines we want to make sure that the SAP fonts are used. I found out that with a conversion to pdf the sap fonts installed are used so that it solved our problem.

Now I try to make it as simple as possible for a user to convert a printjob to pdf. I have already made a separate transaction for it which transforms the spooljob to pdf and is used quite a lot.

to make it possible that users can print directly from a transaction I found sap note 1562096 Smart Forms PDF Print Preview

I have implemented this note and the pdf viewer works, but when I want to print it then the only print button on top prints not the pdf preview but the report as it normally is (which means which the wrong fonts)

Is it possible to extend the standard sap pdf viewer with a printbutton which prints the pdf instead of the otf spooljob ?

kind regards
