    I just have a quick question about printing. When I want to print just part of a page, how do I do that? I just came from the windows world, and when I wanted to print some text on a webpage for example, I would just highlight the text, hit print, and check print selection. How do I "print selection" on a mac with OSX.
    Thanks

    Well, in Camino it works just the same. Select the text, then push "Print" and in the dropdown menu select "Camino". There's the option you were looking for. I don't know if this works in IE or Safari though.

    The only current way outside of camino is to copy and paste to textedit and print from there.

    Yes, there are some thing that Microsoft has done that I wish Apple would do. The selection print is one of them.

    My recomendation is to keep textedit in the dock for easy access.

    It is in the latest nightly builds. When you select print and the print options window comes up click on the drop down menu and there is a camino option. In the camino option you have the option to print selection.

    Services

    I have two solutions to this problem. For text, select it then use the services command Text Edit -> Open Selection. Then Print that. Also Snapz Pro can send screen snapz directly to the printer. so hit that key draw your selection and it goes and prints it, if you dont have snapz you can use apples built in screen shot thing to take a selection of the screen and paste that into text edit or preview and print.

    Snapz Pro X comes with OSX on the PowerMacs.
