    I'm printing some tractor manuals on my Brother 5250DN laser printer (I also have a Brother MFC-665CW color ink jet/fax/scanner connected to the network). The manuals are in Adobe format and I have Adobe Reader 9 installed in Leopard on my PowerMac. I can print the full manuals just fine (duplex laser is great for cheap manual prints), but in the course of doing so I noticed that the print command in Adobe Reader 9 is just the basic OS X print one, not the option/menu style one I remember from Reader 8 that lets you print individual pages and shows a little preview of the page on the right side, etc. When I click the "preview" button on the print dialogue it responds with "Preview Not Supported". I've searched and searched for this problem and I find no mention of it anywhere. Am I experiencing a problem due to a wrong setting somewhere or something? Adobe's site implies that I should be seeing that same standard print dialogue with the page selection and mini-preview, etc. that I remember from Adobe Reader 8. What's going on here?

    Click the small triangle to the right of the Printer: drop-down menu to expand (and then later to contract, if you wish) the dialog to show (hide) more options.
