I have a large page for which I created a large master Artboard, call it #1. I want to print just a portion of the page so I created a Artboard 2, inside Artboard 1. When printing, the page comes out blank.

I then noticed that the Artboards appear as layers in the layer menu, and I had to drag all the content of Artboard 1 into Artboard 2 for Artboard 2 to have content.

This strikes me as very odd behavior, and inconvenient. Is there a way to just print smaller Artboards without having to drag around content?

If you print only any one artboard, only items it contains will print, so if for example you want to print only your smaller artboard you have to make sure it contains the items you want in the print. That's just the way container objects like artboards work.
