I have a MacBook running OS 10.5.8 (with the latest updates). My preferred browser is Firefox 15.0.1. I have always been able to print just a selection of a document, and I can do so in Microsoft Word, Google Mail, everything, it seems except Apple Mail. I have a little HP inkjet printer and a new Brother laser printer (HL-5470DW). I've searched their Help menus and manuals, as well as the Help menu for Mac and have found nothing about printing selections of Apple Mail messages. Is there a way to do that? Or do I have to copy the selection into a different document, like one in Microsoft Word for Mac? Or Google Mail? I prefer not to do that last option. The formatting choices are not the greatest.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
