I use Snagit every day at work, I absolutely love it, but I could cut out a few steps in my process at work if only Snagit editor had a function to save particular pages as a PDF. Sometimes I am forced to single out one to four pages at a time to save as a single separate PDF, taken out of a larger (sometimes hundreds of pages) PDF. I think it would be a very cool function to have a "Save page/s" command available under the "Snagit button" so that I can have Snagit save whatever range of pages I want as a PDF with the file name I want it to have, instead of copying the image, opening a Word document, pasting, resizing, centering, and "Save as" -ing a page or multiple pages as a new PDF. Other than this one issue, I love Snagit, keep up the good work guys!

Hi,
It seems you can do this right from within your Word document (not that I don't think you should / could use Snagit) in order to be as efficient as possible.

While in your Word document, if you press Ctrl + P to print, you will get the print dialog box.
If you choose Adobe PDF as the Printer, then fill in the specific pages to print, or check Current Page, you will get your pages quickly and easily in PDF format.

However, there might be something missing in my scenario or maybe this is not working for you.
If so, let us know a bit more information and we can go from there.

Kelly, the documents I receive are already PDF's, so therefore I cant use word to do this. The fastest way possible would be to be able to save individual pages as a PDF in Snagit. That, or get Adobe to make it possible to split up PDF's... which, lets face it is like asking the US Government to do something specific.

Ok. Gotcha.

If you have the free PDF reader, and you choose to print from there, can you do the same process that I showed above?

In my Adobe Reader, I can do that - choose print and print just one existing page to a PDF.

Can you try and tell me what you see or what happens?
