    You can take a screen shot of Reminders, save it to Desktop (or any other place), and then open and print it.

    For a company with the slogan: “It just works,” sometimes it doesn’t. How difficult would it be for an Apple engineer to allow printing directly from the Reminders app? It’s really ridiculous that that facility isn’t there.

    Another example: when you copy a URL and paste it to an email or text document, you usually have to go through a couple of more steps to make it a clickable link. Windows has made pasted links clickable automatically forever.

    And, why can’t you just delete a file from Finder by highlighting it and clicking the delete key? Why do you have to go to a dropdown menu and find and click Trash to delete files? Even if you inadvertently deleted a file you wanted to keep, it could still be in the Trash folder as it is now.

      Good questions.

      But you can delete files from Finder with Command+Delete keystroke combination, it will send the selected file(s) to the Trash on the Mac.

        I guess the next question is: why you need to use two keystrokes when one should be enough? Does clicking just the Delete key do something else in Finder? If the file goes to Trash accidentally by clicking only the Delete, it can easily be recovered if it was deleted by mistake.

    Why not just select and then use Control P to print selection?

      Sorry … that should have been Command P not Control P.

        Because you can’t. Check to see for yourself.

    FYI here’s the complicated way I’ve done it. I have a $7/year subscription to Anylist, which (a) provides with subscriptions a Mac app that auto-syncs and (b) optionally copies over list items from Reminders.


    So I import a Reminders folder into Anylist (first creating an identically-named file in that app) and once it transfers I can print it either from the iOS or Mac app.

    Yes, a kludge, but an automated one!

      AnyList is the App Apple should have created. I have used it for years. I get that Reminders is a simple list creating App but I think there is such thing as too simple. I am a diehard Apple guy but occasionally I just shake my head at Apple and say “I just don’t get it”. Reminders (and notes) has huge potential but its just not useful enough for me yet. IMHO Apple has always been superior in hardware and lacked in software. With that said, I hate hate hate (did I mention hate) Microsoft Office and love love love (did I mention love) Pages, Numbers and Keynote. They are the superior office suite – and you don’t have to pay :)

    I’m unable to select an item in any list by “clicking just to the right of the item.” Each list item has an empty circle on its left side that can be selected, but that does not allow a “Select All” action to select all items in the list. It really just allows me to Edit that item.

    Cannot find any way to select and copy any list item let alone all items! (iPhone 6+)

      Same here! Can not do select all.

    Quicker and easier to simple press cmd/shift/4 and get a screen grab and print it!

    Great post. Thank you for the information. One question, hope you can answer. What about the notes sometimes attached to the reminders; do you know of a work-around to print those?

      I just figured out a workaround that might work in other calendaring and reminder systems. Bill David’s comment above triggered the idea.

      I opened Fantastical (I remembered that it not only integrates with iCal but also with Reminders); Went to “View” in the toolbar and selected “Reminders”, voila! All my reminders color-coded and sorted appropriately. Right-Click, copy, paste into my text editor Scrivener.

      Hope this helps someone else!
