If you selects Windows Style selection, the print will be the square made of selected start and end co-ordinates. This option is disabled if Java print mode is not enabled.
Print Screen Collection is available in 3270 Display sessions only. Click File > Print Screen Collection > Collect Screen to store an image of the current screen in a list of images for later printing. For more information see the following topics:
When you print host graphics (that is, a picture or a bitmap image) the image is scaled. Therefore the aspect ratio of the printed image may be different than the aspect ratio of displayed image.

Missing Unix lp command
The Print Screen function of Z and I Emulator for Web uses a programming interface provided by Java, which does not work on some Unix-based operating systems, such as Linux. The implementation of the programming interface uses the Unix lp command, which is not available on some Unix-based operating systems.
Following is the workaround for this problem:
ln -s lpr lp
If the Z and I Emulator for Web Print Screen menu and toolbar option does not work on your Unix system when the output is directed to a printer, you can do the following:
LPR -Pprinterqueue filename, for example,
LPR -P51pcl /home/usr.txt.
Normally a user can print a marked area of the screen by following these steps:
You can disable the printing of a marked area, so that the entire screen is printed (or collected). When you disable this option, Z and I Emulator for Web always prints or collects the the entire screen, even if the user has marked an area using the marking rectangle.
To disable the printing of a marked area,
set the HTML parameter
markedAreaPrintingEnabled to false
in the Deployment Wizard or in your client HTML page.
In your client HTML page, add the parameter as follows:
<PARAM NAME=markedAreaPrintingEnabled VALUE=false>.
