    I'm trying to print the even and odd pages of a PDF document in Preview so I can print on the front and back of the paper, but I can't find how to print only odd/even. I'm using Preview in Leopard.

    I don't have Leopard, so I can't say for sure where the option has gone, but in Tiger, there's an option under "Paper Handling."

    Does that help you track down the setting?

    Ahh! Thank you so much! It's still listed under "Paper Handeling" in Leopard as well.

    What about printing even/odd pages of a PDF file to a PDF file (i.e. Save as PDF...)? It doesn't seem to work for me. It saves it to a PDF file with every page in the range specified.

    Could you just tell me how to find "paper handling" menu?
    I use leopard and hp 1020 printer, and printing pdfs it's the thing that realy pisses me off :)
    Thanks for your help.

    It's underneath the Page Orientation images and Page Scaling percentage in the print dialogue. There's a pop-up menu with the name of the app you're using there. It has colour setting, printer settings, paper feed etc in there as well.

    Thanks!
    This is exactly where it is! I had same problems with translating menu names you gave into Polish, but eventually i've found it! :D
    Thanks again!

    I love the internet!

    Just had to post something to say thanks for this. Even though this post has been gathering dust in cyber space for 3 years it just saved me a load of grief.
    So to confirm these instructions still hold good for Leopard on the eve of a Lion launch

    Thanks so much for this! I've been booting in windows because I didn't think this could be done, but glad I searched this time :D.

    Just to say it still works in Yosemite 10.10.2:)
    I'm surprised that odd and even page selection is still so hard to find even after all these years!
