How to suppress pages when printing a report

When I print a report, on the final printer window (where you choose which printer and how many copies) the only button available in the "Print range" area is "All".

How can I enable those other buttons? Sometimes I only need a few of the pages.

I know a workaround: print to PDF and then print only the pages I want of that PDF. But that shouldn't be necessary.

Unfortunately there is not an option to select which pages you desire to print.  It's either print screen, print all, print to Excel, or print none.  At least not within Softdent.

Too true....there are some reports I do not need that last page and it would be nice to have an option to print the pages you would like.

The frustrating part is that the option to print a partial report is there, but SoftDent has the options greyed out.

If you download software like CutePDF, which you add on as a "printer". Send your report to that printer which will ask you where to save it (I usually just save it to my desktop). From Adobe you can print certain pages and not others.

Lengthy, but doable.
