a Mac OS X app and the reason this software occupies a much-deserved
place on my Mac's hard drive.

well as ways to manage it, for maximum economy. ... PrintIt! (PI)
enables you to select anything, even things like About boxes and
other entities the OS can't select. ...there's nothing you can't
print, and nothing you have to print if you don't want to. ...the net

Eliminate Printing Hassles - If You Can See It, You Can Print It!
With Print It!(tm), if you can see it, you can print it -- and a whole lot more! And Print It! is amazingly easy to use and never gets in your way. And Print It! is fast -- very fast.
How many times have you printed information off of the Web with your Web browser and ended up with either blank pages or sections of the info you wanted missing?
Have you found when printing from some programs that your formatting gets messed up?
Are you tired of being forced to print ink-intensive Web ads along with the data you print off of the web?
Do you find yourself unable to print certain information either because it's not normally printable or because your program just can't print it?
Print It! lets you instantly select and print anything you can see on your monitor, and this includes any combination of text, pictures, and graphics -- literally, anything.
Print It! provides WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) printing and includes support for previewing your print job.
Print It! also works with the Finder, so it's easy to create Finder lists of anything and print them -- even with your own customized notes added.
Print It! lets you add notes and/or time-date stamps to anything you print, including your pictures and graphics.
Print It! lets you -- even on the fly -- create print jobs by automatically combining virtually an unlimited number of selections from anywhere and then printing them together. Additionally, you can add notes and/or time-date stamps to your selections individually and/or to your print job as a whole.
Print It! lets you select and grab whatever info you need from anywhere, including databases, spreadsheets, web pages, email, AOL, online chats, newsreaders, word processors, PIMs, calendar/appointment programs, Quicken and other financial software, and virtually anything else -- you name it!
Print It! lets you instantly create subreports from FileMaker, Quicken, Excel and literally any other program by allowing you to collect and combine just the info you are looking for -- even across multiple applications. (You even can add your own notes and time-date stamps to your collected data/subreports.)
Print It! is a powerful tool for collecting any type of data when doing any type of research, whether for school, work, or personal use.
Print It! protects your data by providing you with the option of automatically saving it so you can continue working with your print project at a later time.
Print It! also saves you money because it eliminates wasting ink/toner and paper printing material you don't need and because it makes you more productive when using your computer.
And Print It! includes many additional features to make your life easier and more productive when using your Mac!
Print It! is Very Easy to Use
Using Print It! is incredibly easy! Print It! adds a system-wide hotkey to OS X that lets you instantly select what you want to print in any program (or anywhere else on your display, including the Finder/Desktop) -- there's no interface either to get in your way or to learn how to use.
Print It! also includes the option of using its innovative contextual menu (use the CM to instantly access Print It!'s other advanced features). Via either a keyboard shortcut or the Menu Bar, you can bring up Print It!'s CM, and this CM is available no matter what other programs you are working with.
Some of the innovative features of Print It!'s advanced CM are the ability for you to remove your cursor from it and have it remain on your screen, the ability to drag it to any location on your display, and a Close button for instantly dismissing it (this also can be done via the same keyboard shortcut that's used to make the CM visible).
Once you select the action you want to perform from the CM, all you need to do is move your cursor to where you want to select your material and make your selection -- Print It! is that fast and easy to use!
