When I created a pdf off a pdf (using the free CutePDF), printing only certain pages, the end document (.pdf) has the following error:

I have had a lot of issues with CutePDF. Could you give Foxit Reader a try. It also enables you to create PDFs. We like it because it can read PDFs better then Adobe Reader (Less errors).

Hi Robert,
CutePDF used to be my favorite free PDF print driver, but now I prefer Bullzip and doPDF (both also free):

I suggest trying Bullzip first to see if it works for you; if not, try doPDF next. If both fail, then there's probably something wrong with the PDF file. Regards, Joe

Btw, I should have mentioned that if your goal is to create a new PDF from only certain pages of an existing PDF, there are other ways to do it besides printing to a PDF print driver. One way is with the excellent (and free) PDF Toolkit (PDFtk) from PDF Labs, which comes in both command line interface (CLI) and graphical user interface (GUI) versions.

The GUI version is called PDFtk Free and may be downloaded here:

The CLI version is called PDFtk Server (but is also free) and may be downloaded here:

It is extremely easy to extract pages from PDF files with both tools (and to combine/merge pages, too). Here are some examples for the CLI:

Hi Robert,
You're welcome — happy to help. But please note that you did not close this question properly. You selected your "Thank you" post as the solution, which, of course, it isn't. I'm going to Object to the closing, which will re-open the question, and then you can close the question properly by selecting one post as the Best (Accepted) Solution and any number of other posts as Assisted Solutions. You may split the points evenly among the experts or in any distribution that you want. The prompts during the closing process are straightforward, but if you want to learn more about closing questions, these articles will help:
How do I accept a comment as my solution?
How do I accept multiple comments as my solution?

Those articles are a bit out-of-date, because they talk about Grades, which no longer exist, but other than that, they'll get you going on the path to closing your questions properly here at EE. Regards, Joe

Hi thermoduric,
The asker said "Thank you" in his last comment, so was obviously happy with at least one of the proposed solutions, but then proceeded to make the mistake of selecting his "Thank you" post as the solution. Of course, it is impossible to know which of the posts in the thread are the cause of his "Thank you" comment, so I'll use my judgment to make closing recommendations, with the URL in the format you requested and a reason for each choice:

Reason: Foxit Reader installs the Foxit Reader PDF Printer, which is a good alternative to CutePDF.

Reason: Bullzip and doPDF are good alternatives to CutePDF.

Reason: PDF reDirect is a good alternative to CutePDF.

Reason: Although not a PDF print driver, the PDF Toolkit (PDFtk) is a good way to extract pages from PDF files.
