Partial pdf export

Despite your editing tool, I guess (and hope) that you always export your document to PDF format. Something I always needed while exchanging my big documents with others is to sending only specific parts.  A cool tool for that is pdftk on Linux (sudo apt-get install pdftk)

pdftk A=input_file.pdf cat A12-13 output output_file.pdf

This will export pages 12 to 13.

Of course, you can always use a pdf printer and select only the page range you’re interested in, just google “print to pdf” if it’s not already available on your system  😉

Update: I read that Microsoft has added the native support of PDF export on Windows 10.
