I want to save pages 6-120 of a 400 page document.
The document is text and graphics.
I want it as a pdf file, not a post script file

    You need the full version of Acrobat for this. Reader will only allow you to print to a PostScript file. You can use other PS to PDF tools to convert this PostScript file to PDF. Look at Ghostscript for example ( You can also use something like PDF995 to print directly to PDF (
    If you just want to extract the pages, and don't require to use Adobe Reader, look at PdfTk:

    Just in case you use a different method: You go to the thumbnail view, select the pages and then either use the Document menu, or right-mouse click and select "Extract Pages". This will create a new PDF document in Acrobat which you then have to save to a document.
