Print Selection - This app works great. I especially like that you can append several selections together, edit them, and then send them to the printer to save paper or to group related clips together for convenience. Don’t know how I lived without it.

Five stars... - … except it repeatedly spams me to give a review (done!) and to sign up for a newsletter. That’s ridiculous for a paid app.

It just works - I use it to print a copied selection, and to append and print multiple selections on a single page. Very handy when I don’t want to print the whole darn thing.

Perfect! - This functionality should have been included in MacOS. Being able to print a specific selection, either from the menu bar or as a service, is a feature I find myself using on a routine basis. I don't know what I'd do without this handy little app. This and PopClip are installed on every computer the very first day.

Great Program! - I have used Print selection for several years now…. Love it! I don’t like to have to print everything on a page, when I am interested in only part of an article. Recommend this highly!

Review by milleron

Couldn’t live without Print Selection - This is a smallish app that, near as I can ascertain, hasn’t been updated since I bought it about 2.5 years ago. No matter, it’s perfect as is. I’ve never found a similar app that will, as easily, allow me to collect selections from a Web page or documents, edit them if necessary, and then allow me to print them all out as one document. I think it’s indispensable regardless of what your computer’s primary use is.
