When printing from the preview mode a standard Windows popup shows, letting me select the printer, number of copies and a page range. Unfortunately QCAD (or Windows) ignores the page range - it always prints all pages. So right now I always have to copy the parts I want to print, page them into a separate document and print that instead - even though I got all my stuff nicely lined up for printing on multiple pages.

This task depends upon

I just tested this and I can confirm the same behaviour on Windows 8.1.

Set up Multiple pages, 3 columns and 3 rows.

Send to print and in printer configuration set to print 9 pages per sheet and chose to print page range 3-6 ... but QCAD printed all 9 pages.

Could be windows 8, needs testing on different operating systems and versions of windows!

I can confirm that the page range is not supported by QCAD at this point. The values entered are ignored.

If you add support for page range, then please, somehow, illustrate how the page sequence is (does it go horizontal or vertical first?). Could for instance be that page numbers were visible on the printing preview (maybe they already are?). Thanks.
