    Default PDF won't export selected pages

    XDPX - website with a long scrollable main page and then 6 following pages which go into detail info when a user clicks the relevant button on the main page.
    I want to export the 6 separate pages as one pdf which the user can download.
    Simple right? In pdf dialogue click pgs 2-7? Wrong - get pages 2,3,4 only.
    Experiment export pages 5-7 - wrong - get pages 2-3!!
    I'm going mad - please help

    I've saved the web file as a .xar file and opened it in P&GD v17 - chose pages 2-7 - perfect!!! What gives?

    LGF, no issue here with any XDA that handles PDFs.

    Export PDF
    Settings > Commercial Printing
    Advanced Options
    General > Page Generation > Page range: 2-7

    LGF, for whatever reason Xara is not recognising or skipping some of your pages.

    The quick solution is save a copy and then delete the first page and Export PDF for the remaining ones. That works perfectly.

    I found your Page backgrounds to be over-complex with a Repeat in Variants shape that served no purpose.
    I doubt there is any real issue here though.

    I think the file has been corrupted and is beyond fixing as the XAR has the same issues.

    rizarfaldi, welcome to Talkgraphics.
    That's a shocker as I believed it had to be a corrupt file. Any chance of you uploading yours?
