Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I print a Stack Overflow question, the votes each answer has is not getting printed. As a result, I was not able to differentiate a postive voted answer and a negative voted answer.

This is also the case with accepted answer.

Is this intentional or am I missing something here?

Use StackPrinter to print a question.

It was developed specifically to overcome the limitations of printing out questions and answers directly from the site.

This is intentional. In the stylesheet you'll find the following rule:{display:none;}

Which hides all the votes. This includes the accepted answer check mark.

Why is this intentional ? I think this is a necessary feature. – The King Sep 7 '10 at 12:15
Order of the answers will by default be highest voted down with accepted up top. You can use a marker pen to real-world the checkmark you think works best too. Offline interaction. @the – random Sep 7 '10 at 12:24

You can work-around this by using a browser screenshot as mentioned in this SU question, allowing you to print the question just the way it is displayed at your screen.
