Anyone got any ideas how to print reminders with Mountain Lion? You used to be able to do it when reminders sat in Calendars but I can't seem to figure out how now. Any ideas?

OS X Mountain Lion

    Welcome to Apple Communities


    Print isn't supported in it

    Thanks....glad to know I'm not going mad. Just wish you could still print it as that's my "to do" list and it's sometimes good to have it in paper form.

    You're welcome

    You could always take a screen shot of the window (hold down command-shift-4 and then when the cursor changes to a plus either drag a rectangle around the list or hit spacebar and when it changes to a camera then click on the Reminders window).


    That will put a screen shot on your desktop.  Then open it in Preview and you can print it.  Mine came out 90 degrees rotated left so I hit command-R to rotate it to the right orientation.


    This seems a bit more work than it should be, for sure

    This needs a script to be written ... any volunteers?


    Join Calendar with Reminders in a frame of some kind, then print.


    Safari?  Notes?  Textedit? ... can I assume everyone would have Numbers?


    How would I add settings dialog using AppleScrit?

    I found a way you can do this.  It takes a couple of steps, but it works and it works great!


    What you do is double click on any word in any of your reminders lists.  It has to be a word with the check boxes, NOT the name of your list.


    After you click on the word it will highlight it.  Now hit Command+A to select all the items in your list.


    Hit Command+C to copy the items to your clipboard.


    Now open Pages and paste the items into a document.


    When you do, each item will show up like this:


    [ ]  Blah blah blah


    [ ]  Blah blah blah


    [ ]  Blah blah blah


    You can then hit Command+F which will give you a find and replace feature so you can search for [ } and replace it with nothing so you don't have that ugly stuff at the beginning of each line.


    It takes a few steps but it seriously doesn't take long.


    FYI - IF you try to copy and paste the text into an email it won't work.  Instead it shows up as individual .ics files.  Thus far the only way I've found for it to show up is to paste it into a Pages document.


    Please let me know if this works for you too.

    hey! this is a great idea.


    i am trying to replicate your efforts and when i CTRL + A - i am only getting it to select a /line/ instead of it selecting all the info in the Reminder.


    am i doing it wrong?


    would be really great to print this...

  • MacLand Level 1 (5 points)

    Wow!  I just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how I did it last night.  I knew I wasn't crazy because I really did do this.  I'm getting the same results you are.


    BUT……I finally figured it out!!!!


    Do not click on a word.  Instead, click on the double red line that is between the check box and the first word of any of the items in your reminders list.  When you do, the entire line will change to a gray color (indicating that it is highlighted.  NOW, hit Command+A to select all. 


    Command+C will copy the text.


    Go to Pages


    Command+P will paste it into your document.


    YES!!!  I got it.  Sorry for not getting it right the first time.


    FYI - in your Reminders list, all your items will be "highlighted" gray.  To get that to go away you will have to click onto a different list and then go back to your original one and they will be unselected.


    Let me know if this works for you.

    computers are unbelievable, huh.


    this is great work!


    wow, thank you!


    do you want to post this as a new thread telling people what you were able to do? i think this thread is closed and i am told it is not great to continue a closed thread (i was desperate, lol...).


    but at the same time this is a really great result and i think it will help a lot of people in their daily lives - - - which is why i went back to mac two years ago in the first place...


    great job my friend - and again a big THANK YOU.



  • hotwheels 22 Level 1 (0 points)

    yeah. this is fantastic. thanks.


    so my M.O. is to click on the red line (/once/) and then CMD-A and open Pages. CMD-V in Pages and then hit Page Break. repeat. i also put the first line of the reminders as a bolded name of the reminder so that i know what has been printed out.


    very nice solution!


    anyway, it is a shame this isn't easier given how fantastic and easy it is to print out of Calendar which is exceptionally helpful for me to have in "real form" as well.

    This is just stupid. Not understandable

  • zeebergee Level 1 (0 points)

    I just did this on my MacBook Pro by using CMD A to select all of my list, opened text edit and pasted - then printed.  I don't have a word processing application like Pages installed on this machine, so TextEdit seemed to work fine for me.

    It even gave me an area to check off each task. 


    Seriously, Apple, you need to give us a print function built in.  Not so hard - but a pain in the butt.

    Thank you - you are a STAR!!!! Worked even by pasting into Word.
