An Easy Way To Print Selected Text

Do you sometimes want to print a paragraph of an email message, Word document or web page? If so, here’s an incredibly fast and easy way to do this on your Mac.

  1. Select the text that you want to print
  2. Press Command-Shift-Y. This will create a new Sticky Note and paste the selected text on it. Text formatting will be retained.
  3. Press Command-P to bring up the print window. Click the Print button to send the sticky note to your printer.

That’s it. If you’d like to delete the Sticky Note click the tiny square in the note’s upper left corner. If you’d like to keep the Stick Note simply quit the Stickies application.
