i cannot for the life of me, figure out how to do a "print selected text" on my ibook. anyone?
Same here. My God, it's frustrating!
sorry but ive been told you cannot do it directly with osx...i resort to copy and pasting it to something like Word or Adobe reader.it does suck
Here's how to do it
It depends what app you are in, but it works in Safari and Preview and unfortuntely not in M$ word .
1. Highlight the text you want.
2. Go to Safari / Preview menu and select 'Services'.
3. Select 'TextEdit' then 'New Window Containing Selection'
4. Voila!! TextEdit will open a new window with the selected text
5. Press command p to print.
edit - not sure what other apps it works in - just experiment and see.
OK, that's FAR too complicated! I fail to see why they can't have a simple button for it in the Print dialog box like Windoze does. Is that so hard???
I don't see why that hasn't been corrected yet. Oh well. Maybe 10.3.8 or Tiger? Please???
Wow... that's a first... Windows does something better than OSX (other than getting infected with spyware and viruses.)
Can't you just drag a text clipping to the desktop and thence to your desktop printer?
