But I Don’t Want To Print The Whole File!
Have you ever found yourself trying to print only a few pages of a long file?
Maybe you made changes to only one page and need just it—not the other 42.
Sound like a familiar situation?
If your answer is “Yes!” then here’s the solution to your problems.
Next time you go to print and need only a portion of the file use either the File menu, Print choice or Ctrl + P.
(The printer button usually just prints the whole file, with no options, so using that won’t help us here.)
Now take a good look at the Print window.
See the section on the left – in the bottom/middle section?
Here it is – you do have an option!
By default, the All choice is selected.
- To print only the page with the cursor on it, select Current Page and then click OK.
- To print several non-consecutive pages list the page numbers separated by commas.
For example – to print pages 1, 3 and 7 you would type 1, 3, 7 in the Pages field then click OK.
- To print a range of pages type the first page to be printed, then a hyphen, then the last page to be printed.
For example – to print pages 2 through 7 you would type 2-7 in the Pages field then click OK.
- The Page field box will also let you mix the non-consecutive method with the range of pages.
For example – to print pages 3, 7 though 9 and 12 simply type 3, 7-9, 12 in the Pages field and click OK.
Voila! Print what you want and only what you want!
