The specific reason to ask this is the following situation: I use preview mode in latex. I often want to print a paragraph (with the inline images generated, but I don't care about the text font).
I know I can compile and print the pdf page corresponding to the region of interest, but the question is if there is a direct way to print a region from emacs with the inline images.
M-x print-region prints the LaTeX source text but doesn't substitute the inline images generated for the LaTeX commands. This would be useful while working for me, and I believe many other mathematicians.
