    This is probably a really stupid question, but I simply cannot figure out how to "Print Selection" in Safari. How do you do it?

    So there's no "proper" way of doing it? I find that hard to believe! Time to write to Apple...

    Nermal, I'm not sure what you mean by "selection" but what I used to do in OS 9 (print window) is to click and drag to selcet what text I want to print then copy-paste into "Text Edit" or another simple Text app. then print it from there. I have never heard of "Print Selection" as you refer to it.

    Selection, as in the text you select by dragging. It's called Print Selection in Windows, and I can't think of another name for it.

    Provided that you're not looking for amazing formatting but just text with limited graphics, you can select it, use the Safari - Services - TextEdit - New Window Containing Selection menu and there you go. TextEdit will open up a blank document in front of the one that you created, but it is there behind it.

    Applications that support a "print selection" are hit and miss on Mac.
