I've found that Print Selection no longer works in Safari in Leopard, either by menu selection or by shortcut keys. It works in other applications. I've tried using Grab but there doesn't seem to be any way to get the selection to fit on a printer page. It's too big. Can anyone help?

Possible answer

I may have found a workaraound. In the Application>Services menu there is TextEdit>New Window Containing Selection. I've allocated the PrintSelection Hotkeys to this and it works. It opens the selection in a new TextEdit window which you then print. Needs a few more keystrokes but it gets there in the end.

Bravo, tyke65. That works very nicely, and has some editing advantages over the dead plugin in question, even if there are extra clicks. This Service deserves wider dissemination.
