Create a Rich Text Box control, and use this code:

Richtext1.text = text1.text
richtext1.selprint
printer.enddoc

For your question on selecting items in te listbox do the following

    If List1.ListIndex <> -1 Then
        For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
            If List1.Selected(i) Then List2.AddItem List1.List(i)
        Next i      
    End If

You should change the textbox properties (Set MultiLine to True) and then in do the  
        Printer.Print Text1.Text
        Printer.EndDoc

Hope that help :)

I was going to post it as an answer but someone is a bit earlier than me. Anyway....
