Printing A 'Keynote Legend' Directly from a View

I have been trying to print a Keynote Legend directly to a network printer specifically because I wish to reference the legend whilst working at another PC to edit some specification notes which refer to the project I am working on. However, whilst the process (in Revit) seems straight forward "R"> Print> Print> Print Dialog>OK, having set the print properties etc, when I go to 'Print Range'> Selected Views/Sheets> Select> View/Sheet Set Dialog> <in-session> the two other Legends are listed but not the Keynote Legend!  See below, whilst the 'Keynote Legend Can be clearly seen in the Project Browser and is the open view.  Can anyone suggest why this might be?

One cannot directly print some View Types such as Legends or Schedules. You will have to create a blank sheet (no title block), attach the View to it, and then Print from there.

Thank You Corey, the fount of all knowledge as usual. Any idea why the 'creators' should choose to make this so?

It's more likely that they just didn't believe that such functionality was [comparatively] important enough to invest time and money into, like so many other outstanding issues. I have this on my personal wish list - I would specifically like to be able to print Schedules and electrical Panel Schedules directly from the View.

Is it worth me adding it to my wish list also?
