Unfortunately, you can't print the contents of the Validation Results window. You might want to use pagina EPUB-Checker instead, which allows you to save the epubcheck log.
BTW, if you click an error message in the Validation Results window, Sigil will move the cursor to the line that epubcheck has reported.

With changes it should be possible for Sigil validation plugin types to build and generate a log if this is an important feature. Although line and error info without viewing the file itself simultaneously is harder to use in my opinion.

Thanks for your kind offer, but, IMHO, it'd better if you used your limited time to make Sigil even more epub3-compliant. For example, there's still a minor problem with the epub3 cover metadata context menu item that I reported some time ago.
(I could easily add clipboard support for Windows machines via tkinter.)

@Cyberseeker: It'd be relatively easy to automatically have the plugin copy the original epubcheck report to the system clipboard.
I could also have it write it to the Desktop. However, I'd be an optional feature, which would need to be enabled via the plugin preference file.
Let me know which one you'd prefer and I'll add it in future version.

Clipboard would be fine, and I would drop it into 'Word' and have a look at it on paper. As it is now, is fine for anyone familiar with html, but a lot of authors would need to go through it with a ballpoint pen, or take it to a friend and say, "whats this mean?"

Speaking of epubcheck report "questions", I have a few. Would you prefer that I opened a separate thread, or should I ask them here?

They would be best in the ePub forum.

I will have to dig back through my pm from you. I did not think it was an actual bug that needed fixing but I am willing to take another look at it.

If it's 'automatic' it will overwrite what's currently in the clipboard, which could irritate users.

When task switching... between editing a document in Sigil, a text chat session, and watching a video... I often copy a fragment from the document (transcript of the video) into the clipboard in readiness for my next chat message.

Perhaps the Validation Results window could permit use of Ctrl/A, Ctrl/C. Or put a Copy to clipboard button in the Window Title bar (Qt permitting of course). Or at least put an option in preferences to NOT autocopy validation results.

FWIW - I've sometimes wished for a way to copy what the Language Tool PI puts in the Validation Window.

That was my thought too. That's why I'd make it an opt-in feature via the EpubCheck.json plugin preference file.
BTW, you can already copy and paste a single message from the Validation Results windows using CTRL+C/V.

That plugin could also easily be modified to save the log file to the desktop, if enough users are interested in it.

I read it as, if one did not opt-in for Save to Desktop, then it the errors would autocopy to clipboard

You can do a Ctrl+A and highlight the entire list, but a Ctrl+C will only grab the last line. If CtrL+C could grab the entire selection we'd have a universal solution for the Validation Window.

I attached a new version with clipboard support to the first post.

To enable this feature:
  1. Presss WIN+R.
  2. Copy and paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\sigil-ebook\sigil\plugins_prefs\EpubCheck and hit Return. (If you have a macOS or Linux machine, you'll need to select Edit > Preferences > Open Preferences Location.)
  3. Open EpubCheck.json with a text editor and change the following line
    from:
    Code:
      "clipboard_copy": false,
    to:
    Code:
      "clipboard_copy": true,
  4. Save EpubCheck.json.

Note that this feature might not work with some macOS and Linux versions.
