Print all pages except cover page, without knowing the document’s total page count
Have you ever needed to print all pages of a document apart from the front cover page or first couple of pages?
Worse is when you want to do this but you don’t know how many pages in total the document has.
Here’s a cheeky way to achieve this!
When sending any print job to the printer, you will get the usual OS X Print dialog asking you to select the range of pages to be printed.
Every now and then I need to print all pages, but not the first couple of cover sheets or contents pages and I don’t know how many pages in total the document has.
The problem is that the Print Dialog window asks you to fill in both a starting and end page range. If you don’t know how many pages the document has, the annoying thing is that you wont be able to find this out once you’ve selected the option to print a range as the preview window no longer displays the page numbers!
You can just enter a very large number into the end range field, but I have found an easier option, just leave the end field blank!
Just enter the starting page number and select the ‘TAB’ key. Then select the ‘DELETE’ key to remove the end page number and press the ‘ENTER’ key and you’re done!
