    Notice it has a quick keyboard shortcut.

    Good find. Apple should put that in the OS stock. Works great.

    Lets hope they address the problem anyway. Being new to Mac I thought I installed this software wrong however it works for me . I didn't really know what I did to make it work but it does.

    Last night i was on my gaming PC. Went into Firefox and tried right clicking with text highlighted and no print command. Works with IE but I will never use IE on a windows PC again. Tried Opera and no Print under right click either.

    Firefox in OSX does not let you use the print selection service but Opera does. I wish everyone would make their software use all the OS's features.

    xstep - I absolutely love that little program. Works swimmingly. Would you or anyone know of how one can change the font in it? It's a bit cartoonish and hard to read. IDK - Maybe it's just the default and can't be changed. Works great though!

    I don't know how to change the font the lpr command uses. I'm sure there may be a way because our Unix admins do it for our HP printers. This may not apply to all printers. By the way, I liked the font I saw.

    As for a font solution, I came up with two scripts to do the job. They do however use applications which means you'll have a blink on the screen as the applications display the document I'm using.

    Download the attached files. The first file named pmsp.txt uses Preview. The second file uses TextEdit, allowing font and font size to be preset. You shold be able to open Script Editor (as previously done) and paste each one into it's own script name. I named my scripts 'Print Mail Selection via Preview' and 'Print Mail Selection via TextEdit' respectively.

    These scripts leave you in the application that gets called. To return to mail, duplicated (cut & paste) the first tell block to the bottom of the code. A small excercise for you.

    Put TextEdit icon in the Dock. Select text in Safari, click and drag to the TextEdit icon, then print.
