The Edit-> Preferences -> Evaluation menu is gone from Mathematica 11. But I want to redirect the output of Print with the option that used to be called

Print[] command output: Print to Console

How can I set this option now?

  • $\begingroup$ @Kuba Ah, true! I even favourited that one but could not find it when googling/seaching my activities for "Print[] to console in Mathematica". Feel free to mark it as such. $\endgroup$

SetOptions[$FrontEnd, PrintAction -> "PrintToConsole"]

The setting will persist across restarts of Mathematica.
