    Hi,

    I am a happier switcher from the windows world :) and I am loving my new macbook.

    There's only one thing that bogus me at mac os x and is the printer preferences.

    Just a example using a browser ( I tried in three firefox safari and camino), I saw a webpage and I just want to print some text that I had selected with my mouse.. Then I do File -> Print but the only option that I have is All or From..!

    I don't see the option "selection" that I had in windows! Is there something that I am doing wrong?

    The only way i have found to do this is by using something like Print Selection Service. Don't know if it is universal.

    If you drag the selected text to the printer dock icon i think it will just print that text

    I'm not 100% certain, but I think that exists in Firefox/Camino, but 'Print Selection' does not exist as part of the built-in printing services. Yes, I too find its lack of inclusion annoying.
