    Web: Any way to print just a selection of text or just page 1 of 3, etc.

    I don't want to print all the pages. How can I select what to print when I am on a website.

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can print page 1 (to 1), or whatever interval you want to.

    If you want to print just a portion of the text, copy it into a word processor and print from that.

    And to do that easy:

    Highlight the text
    Go to Safari --> Services --> TextEdit --> New window containing selection

    This is something I disagree with, the possibility of selecting something, then just printing it should not be a feature lost. In fact, a lot of these little features should never have been given up on, I found them very useful, and get frustrated often when I can not simply print text I highlighted. Why take something away, or add a few more steps to accomplish the same thing?
