Specifies the range of pages to print in the open PDF. Separate numbers in a range by using a hyphen, and
separate multiple pages or ranges by using commas or spaces. If the Use Logical Page Numbers option is selected in
Page Display Preferences, you can enter numbers that match the numbering printed on the pages using roman
numerals or actual page numbers. For example, if the first page of a document is numbered iii, you can enter iii or 1
to print that page. Selecting Odd Pages Only or Even Pages Only affects which pages in a range print. For example, in
a range that includes 2, 7–10 with Even Pages Only selected, only pages 2, 8, and 10 will print.
To print from a specific page to the end of the document, enter the page with a hyphen. For example, “11-” prints page
11 to the last page of the document.
Choose All Pages In Range, or choose Odd Pages Only or Even Pages Only to print only those pages within
the specified range.
Prints pages in reverse order. If page ranges are entered, the pages print opposite of the order in which
they were entered. For example, if the Pages box shows 3–5, 7–10, selecting Reverse Pages prints pages 10–7, and then
Reduces, enlarges, or divides pages when printing.
Prints the upper left or center of a page (if auto-rotated and centered) without scaling. Pages or selections
that don’t fit on the paper are cropped. You can set this option as the default using the None print preset. See “Create
print presets” on page 404.
Fit To Printable Area
Reduces or enlarges each page to fit the printable area of the currently selected paper size. For
PostScript® printers, the PPD determines the printable area of the paper.
Shrink To Printable Area
Shrinks large pages to fit the currently selected paper size but doesn’t enlarge small pages.
If an area is selected and is larger than the printable area of the currently selected paper, it’s scaled to fit the printable
area. This option is always active during N-up printing. You can set this option as the default using the Default print
preset. See “Create print presets” on page 404.
Tile Large Pages
Applies tiling to pages that are larger than the selected paper size at the specified scale. These
pages are mapped to multiple sheets of paper. If this option is selected, you can also specify settings for Tile Scale,
Overlap, Cut Marks, and Labels.
Tile All Pages
Applies tiling to all pages, regardless of size. However, only the pages that are larger than the selected
paper size at the specified scale are mapped to multiple sheets of paper. If this option is selected, you can also specify
settings for Tile Scale, Overlap, Cut Marks, and Labels.
Multiple Pages Per Sheet
Enables N-up printing, where multiple pages print on the same sheet of paper. If this
option is selected, you can also specify settings for Pages Per Sheet, Page Order, Print Page Border, and Auto-Rotate

during N-up printing. If you select a predefined number from the menu, Acrobat automatically selects the best paper
