I am running Acrobat Standard 6.0.   I have a large document, 360 pages, and I need to only print every 4th page.  Actually it is a large partnership tax return and I need to print the first page of the all the K-1s.  Is there a way in Acrobat to tell it only to print certain pages?  Thank you.

Unfortunately there is no straight foward way to do that. You have two options: Use a tool to extract every 4th page and then print the resulting document. You can either use Acrobat's JavaScript (which unfortunately you cannot develop with just Standard, but you could run a JavaScript program) or use a 3rd party tool to extract the pages (e.g. the free pdftk - http://forum.planetpdf.com/wb/default.asp).
Your second option is the low-tech approach: Open up the document and select the "Pages" pane in Acrobat. Change the size of the pane so that you have exactly four pages displayed in every row. Then draw a selection rectangle around those pages that you want to print. When your cursor reaches the bottom end of the pages pane, the pane will automatically scroll. You should be able to select every fourth page this way. Then select "File>Print". Because you have a page selection, the print dialog will default to "print selected pages".
