After you have chosen to print you should see a window appearing which amongst other things such as print orientation (landscape portrait) you should see PAGE RANGE, under this there are ALL, PAGES, in the pages part you can specify what pages you are wanting to print, for example if there were 10 pages in total in the printout and you only wanted the first 8 pages printed, you would enter in the PAGES PART 1-8.
FYI : When printing double-sided with a "single-side" printer, it gets confusing how it should be done, especially if the printed output lays face-up with the first printed page at the bottom.
If your printer outputs in this way (it's common), then follow these steps to ensure the final output is correct:-
Remove any "Reverse Print Order" option selected for your printer properties. People often check this ON when using "face-up, last page at top-of-pile" printers.
Print the ODD numbered pages first, this will ensure you end up with the correct number of pages.
Pick up the printed output, and put it back in the printer feeder so that the blank side gets printed on. (Note: this blank side will always be the other side of "page 1"). Make sure the paper is set "upside-down", so that the leading edge (top of page) is the same as for the ODD pages print.
Now print the EVEN numbered pages.
The final printed document will be double-sided, and in the correct order for stapling or binding etc.
The procedure works, but if you get any misfeeds, it can screw it all up, and you'll have to start again, recovering what you can.
