I had an issue which appears to be similar (years ago now though) and it turned out to be a font related issue.
I could see it in preview, but it wouldn't print.
In my case, if I remember correctly, it was only happening when I applied additional formatting to a font, i.e FontName would print fine, but FontName + Bold / Italics would not.
Also, If on a mac, have you tried validating the fonts? I'm not sure how to do this on Windows, I have never had to.
Steve - I checked and the fonts were different. Tahoma in the body, Arial in the subsummary, but changing them did nothing. I saw a thread from a year ago with similar symptoms, but it was related to field size being exactly the same as the body part size. Apparently that was fixed in 14.01, but is not the case here. We are on a Windows 7/ 10 systems.
Bizarre work around: I enter preview mode ( FM 14.04) and press the Save as PDF button. The Pdf shows everything that Preview does. I am able to print that. Not a solution, but I can at least print my data.
The plot thickens
Unfortunately.. I have no more suggestions / ideas, hopefully somebody else has come across similar and can offer advice.
If you do find the cause, I would be interested in knowing what it was.
I am seeing the same behavior in FM16. Subsummary present in preview. but missing on the actual printout.
Have tried different printer and hanged sort field with no change.

Made a new layout and copied all the elements over bit by bit looking for the issue each time. Completely copied everything over without the issue reappearing. There must have been some corruption in the layout, or some element that wasn't visible causing the problem.
Please note that using Print current record will not print sub-summaries, only the body. However this issue existed for "Records being browsed".

Thank you for posting what you did!
I do not see the option to mark my reply as "correct answer" (only Delete and Edit are available under Actions). Perhaps because I am not the original poster?
Yes, sorry. You were not the original poster (OP).
