How can we improve InDesign?

Export selected pages

I very frequently need to export only certain pages to PDF. I know I can type a range or multiple ranges. But it would realy speed up my professional work if I could just select the pages and hit 'Export selected pages...' in the contextual mouse menu.

This feature was present until CS6 by a plugin named HandyTools by DTP Utils.

    This DOES already exist for printing. Select the pages you want in the pages panel, then right-click on one of the pages and choose "Print Spreads" from the context menu. It simply opens the Print dialog box and pre-fills the Range field for you.

    I agree it would be great to add "Export Spreads to PDF" to that context menu.

    I'd love this feature for printing too. Just select the pages you want in the pages panel, then go file > export or print.

    Hi Roland,
    do you mean export of selected pages in the Pages Panel?
    Or also selected pages with the Page Tool?

    Regards,
    Uwe
