Export range of page(s)

Recommended Posts

I have a document of several pages.
The pages don't have a standard dimensions (it is not an A4, but 17,5 by 11,3 cm)

When clicking on File > Export (to get images), you get 2 choices by Area: 1) all pages and 2) Current page.

I would like to have the option to control a range of pages I can export (like with printing, you can choose a range).

This is an important requirement when working on multi-page documents as some of the print services I use require different PDF's to be submitted for each section/part of the item. Currently I am having to use PDFSAM to extract the pages from the document, I know this is okay, but I do always worry that something will 'break' during this process.

 

Native export of page ranges would make the export section 'feel' more like a complete desktop publishing package.

Agree. It is a must. PagePlus had it.

Yes, PagePlus has it and I wish it too in Affinity. :D

I often send a selection of pages to one or more reviewers. It is very useful when the full publication is 50+ pages with graphics and any output results in huge file sizes.

Sometime likes this: 5-8

Or like in MS Word: 1, 2, 4-6, 9

Thanks :)

No? In the print dialog you can - not in the export dialog.

Unless I’ve misunderstood the requirements, this feature exists in 1.7.3.

It works as shown and requested in 1.7.3. Also in the print dialog.

Case closed. :16_relieved:
