    Hello all.
    My OS is Windows 7 and Office 2007. I use Outlook on a personal PC and use Word as the email editor.
    For the last 5 years I have always used Outlook 2003 until I upgraded to Windows 7 and Office 2007. The feature that I used quite a bit in Outlook 2003 is not available in the 2007 version of Outlook. I hope someone can help me figure out a way to get it back.

    Previously with Outlook 2003, I could swipe over text in a email and then print just the 'Selection' of the text I had highlighted.
    Now, with Outlook 2007, I can swipe over text but the option to print just the 'Selection' is not available. My only options are 'All' or a 'Page Range'.
    In Word 2007, I can swipe over text and print the 'Selection' of the highlighted text.
    In Excel 2007, I can swipe over cells and print the 'Selection' of the highlighted cells.
    Since I am using Word as my email editor, why are the print options not the same?
    Can someone help me get the option to print a 'Selection' restored to Outlook 2007?
    Thanks,
    cstierhoff

    Welcome to the Lounge!!

    Unfortunately, there is no native capability to do this in Outlook 2007. Here is Microsoft's official position - Print a page or part of an e-mail message - Outlook - Microsoft Office Online. There are some add-ons that claim to provide what you want. None are free though. Check out - Blueprint for Outlook - Solve Microsoft Outlook Printing Limitations, MAPILab - Print Tools for Outlook - Outlook add-in for automatic printing of messages and attachments, & Print Outlook emails in a customized way..
