    What's the easiest way to print just a region of a webpage?
    Selecting text doesn't change anything.

    I remember that I used a web clip thingy some time ago but I can't find it anymore.

    What's a convenient way to do this?

    Command-Shift-4 to do a screengrab of the area you select with the crosshairs, then open the resulting file (on the Desktop) and print?

    Select the area you want and under the Safari menu and use the Services menu to select "New TextEdit Window Containing Selection" or some of the other apps showing there. This will make the selection editable and not just an image like a screen capture will.

    I find it extremely annoying that I know I had a solution for this and I can't remember which program even provided it. I must have been some developer thing, I guess.

    For now, I'll use Firefox. I just figured out it does this, there's a "print selection only" checkbox in the print dialogue.
