Here is a brief tutorial that shows how, Print Selected Text (Safari). Safari (or other browsers that I'm aware of) were never intended to print just highlighted sections. There are third party apps or plugins that may help though.

Why don't you highlight what you want to print in Safari, then save it as a clipping? You can then print the item in TextEdit.

Firefox has a 'print selection only' option in the print dialogue

This did help in a way because I found that I could download PRINT SELECTION a little cheap programme, highlight selection and drag to icon at bottom of screen, click PDF and the selection
opens in another window, then go to file and print and the preference is available.

I just got my iMac and was shocked that you can't do this simple highlight direct to print function of the selected text. This just seems like such a basic function on a windows based PC. I'm finding that Apple products are great in many ways but often lacking in simple things like this. I'm beginning to question my purchase.

Shouldn't have to be a two step function. Very user unfriendly

I'm a newbie on the Apple products. So if my system came with Safari, do I need to buy Firefox? Help!

Firefox like all web browsers is free.

I purchased the iPad first and waited a year HOPING Apple would fix this problem OR at the least provide something comparable to WINDOWS!
WRONG....and yes it is hard to believe for how ADVANCED Apple is.....that they don't have a simple easy program that allows you to HIGHLIGHT and PRINT ONLY what you highlight!
But....they are making leaps and bounds.....at least you can now cut & paste....thats a good thing!?
HOPEFULLY.......in the VERY,VERY NEAR FUTURE Apple will supply us with the simple software to do these simple time saving chores!
(highlight and print ONLY what you highlight)
Until then we have to cut and paste to several different apps or programs....hoping it will allow you to print ONLY WHAT THE USER WANTS TO PRINT!
