Print pages from [X] to [Y] in Adobe Reader

Ever feel frustrated when you are trying to print chapters of an e-book in Adobe Reader? Let's assume you want to start at page 1 of the book which is actually page 23 in the file (because there are 22 pages of book cover and table on contents before it). If you type 23 in the from box, you may get the real page 23 which is 22 pages after the page you want to print. So, you change that number to 1, guess what, you get the book cover.

If you don't know what I am talking about, don't try to understand the paragraph above. The tips below are still useful. They will give you more confidence in knowing what pages are sent to the printer:

1. In Edit->Preferences, select "Page Display", and uncheck "Use logical page numbers";
2. Enclose the page number with "(" and ")" to get absolute page numbering;
