print specific pages ?

Jul 31, 2012 12:12 AM

I have a 60 or so page document, (various forms, packets, etc

 

Is it posible to add a check box to print specific pages?

For example, add a checkbox to a packet "a"

add a checkbox to packet "c", and only print  "a and c" ?

 

BTW I'm using acrobat x pro

thanks!

    You can use JavaScript to print a range of pages, but to print two different ranges, you'd have to use two separate print statements. Here's a link to the documentation: http://livedocs.adobe.com/acrobat_sdk/9.1/Acrobat9_1_HTMLHelp/JS_API_A croJS.88.511.html

     

    Keep in mind that the page numbers are zero bsed, so that the first page is 0, and the tenth is 9, etc.

     

    Your script can check to see which check boxes are selected and issue a print statement for the corresponding range of pages. You can create a button, perhaps labeled "Print pages", and include the script in the Mouse Up event of the button.
