print selection

See selection print.

selection print

Printing only what is highlighted and not the entire document. Selection print is a basic and widely used function, yet some of the most popular applications do not interface with the printer in this manner. The work-arounds are either copy the desired text into a new document and print it or capture the screen and print from that program. See screen capture.
