But I Don’t Want To Print The Whole File!

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!
