Type 1-5 to print pages 1,2,3,4 and 5.
Type 1,3,5 to print pages 1 and 3 and 5.
5. Type the an amount in the Number of Copies box.
6. Check mark the Collate option to have your pages, as copies, printed in sequence. Otherwise, Word will print e.g. page 1 ten times, then page 2 ten times and so on.
7. From the Pages per Sheet drop down list, choose, for example, 2 pages, to have Word print 2 pages of the document on 1 page.
