Default Printing PDF (page x to y) / multiple page seq's


Using XSL:FO, a document with two page sequences (their only attributes: format="I" and format="1", resp.), I'm generating a PDF document.

Now, when I select the range "1 to 1" in Acrobat Reader's print settings, the first page of the first page sequence gets printed -- by selecting "2 to 2", the second page of the second page sequence -- by selecting "1 to 2", all pages of the first page sequence plus the first two pages of the second page sequence.

That's rather confusing. Is there a rule how a print application (like Acrobat Reader) should behave? -- The first page sequence is a kind of prologue (cover page, imprint, TOC); so the user would probably expect the first page of the second page sequence to be printed by selecting the range "1 to 1".

Also, is the a way to control this behaviour in XSL:FO?

Thanks indeed

This isn't an XSLT question, I'm afraid. You'll need to look elsewhere for help.
