Trouble with printing emails

When I try to print certain emails, it will only print what was in the inbox or the entire webpage as one page. Exiting beta allowed me to print only the email directly.

First off, Thank you all for using the new outlook.com experience and for reporting feedback!

I just wanted to let you all know that over the last few months we have been working on improving and ensuring the print experience is working as you expect.

All of the known bugs and issues should be resolved. Please give printing another try. And as always, please leave any feedback you may have!

    I do not want the whole email list printed alongside an email I am printing... I want only the email itself... So I cannot get a decent email print now with the whole email list alongside.. Don't like this new look.. You may think you are improving the concept.. Instead, you are regressing into something most of us armchair computer people cannot handle... Don't keep "improving" things...

    The print preview function doesn't work like it used to. I cannot see the actual print layout before sending it to the printer. Previous version of Outlook allowed me to change print settings (orientation, print size [shrink to fit, 80%, etc.]) prior to printing. Please reset this ASAP.

    Beta version is just plain amateurish. I can't believe that when I try to print out the email I have open it wants to print the folder pane as well. Does real Outlook do that? No.
    And not having the folder name in the top bar above the email list in a given folder is just plain unforgivable.
    Honestly, you people make it exceedingly difficult to remain a Microsoft customer.

    Normal Outlook keeps freezing up when I delete an email, start a new email, go to a different file, delete attachment, scroll, in other words, almost always. Switched to the Beta, it is better but now it doesn't print. I need email to run my business. It sometimes takes me 15 minutes to send a simple email. I've been using my phone to do most of my work, works fine on my phone.

    There's no print option on the emails. If I right click and hit the print option it does the entire page and not the email I selected. This is a lousy "update."

    I hate the page showing up on the right, prefer the old format.

    You've known about the printing problems for months and it's now November 2018 and the printing problems have still not been resolved!!! I have to forward my emails if they are long to my gmail account to print out. Very pxxxxx off.

    Your print individual function does not work! Very frustrating. Have spent too long on this glitch and will move on to another email account since yours doesn't work.

    pop up interfere with my readings on email and when I try to print instead of the information I want, I get the ads, the menu etc too much ink used for worthless information. It also makes the message print in a small window so the print is small as well.

    what have you done. Why try to change when things are working. I can't now print e-mails??

    I am really upset about having this awful Beta version and it causes me problems and costs alot of time as not working as it should and did before. Why does companies have the idea these days to change good working systems and other belongings in making them bad instead to leave it good working?
    Since Beta version one cant search anymore for deleted emails and restore them again.
    Also with your Beta version I can't print longer emails anymore.
    Why did it happen that with restarting my laptop Outlook has updated my Outlook to the Beta version automatically and yet therefore having no button anymore to switch to the old version but others can switch back??? Please give us with this situation the possibility again to change to the old version as Beta is the worse proram you ever had, to many issues not working anymore.

    The print preview used to comprise clippable plain text and I used it to clip and paste emails or part of emails into a text file of correspondence.
    This feature has been removed and without it I have no interest in using Outlook as my main mail. I have been forced to use Forward, but it is far more awkward. You will see a similar comment below from someone who also only wants to print a portion of an email.
    I spend all my time getting rid of formatting that MS wastes time creating.
