I do not understand why we are experiencing different responses here. I again
checked, and indeed the "selection" disappeared as soon as I clicked <PRINT>. I
am referring to the <FILE><PRINT> order and NOT the print command in the actual
print menu.

Would it be possible to enable this feature or is that not possible? I believe
it is a feature that is well worth having if possible.
