Windows 7: Windows Live Mail won't let user print only a "selection"

Windows Live Mail won't let user print only a "selection"

I'm using the current version of Windows Live Mail, which will not allow the user to print only a "selection" of an email message. The user is only allowed to print the entire message or selected pages.

The prior version of Windows Live Mail (2009) did include this feature.

Why has this feature been deleted from the current version?

It is not an efficient use of the user's time to have to highlight and paste a selection of an email into another program in order to print only the selection desired. Alternately, it is wasteful of paper to have to print an entire email message when only a selection from it is needed.

I cannot fathom why Microsoft removed this essential feature from Windows Live Mail.

Please, please, please put it back!

I don't have a printer connected to this PC right now, so I printed to the XPS Document Writer.
