Information Services uses recycled paper in all MFPs and printers. The paper is manufactured from 100 per cent post-consumer waste (collected from office waste). In addition, we provide a free scanning service on all subject library MFPs. Also USB scanners are available in some subject libraries.
All MFPs can be set to copy on both sides, and the two pages into one option is linked directly from the MFP display. We recycle all MFP and printer toner cartridges and provide paper recycling bins.
In the program of choice select: File > Print.
In the Printer drop down select Microsoft XPS Document Writer.
Select the Print Custom Range. The name may change from program to program.
Set the range. You can set as the first 50 pages, or consider spliting up the document into chapters etc.
Choose a file name, for example 'My Thesis - Chapter 1' or 'My Research - 1-50pp', and select a save location.
Repeat until you have completely split the document for printing.
Open the document you want to split and select File > Print. You do not have to do this step if your document is open in Preview.
In the bottom left hand corner select PDF > Open PDF in Preview.
In Preview select the following icon above the opened PDF, if you're using a newer version of Preview you will then need to select Thumbnails.
In Preview click File > Duplicate.
In the duplicate PDF select the unwanted pages and hit delete.
To select the pages by either:
Click+Drag over the unwanted pages
Click the first page and Shift+Click the final page in the sequence of unwanted pages
Choose a title for the duplicate, such as 'My Thesis - 1-50pp' or 'My Research - Chapter 1'.
Close the duplicate PDF and repeat the steps until the file is completely split.
When you print a range of pages using the IS Computers the printer still has to render the entire document, so files should be split and saved before printing.
