Feature request #12650
atlas - export only certain pages
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|

I would like the ability to export only certain pages from an atlas.
For instance:I have an atlas with 149 pages, and I update pages 3,5,7-10. I would like to export those pages for reprint to a single PDF. Exporting the entire 149 again to print just those is time consuming, but if I could just export the 6 pages I updated it would be great.

not exactly. I mean you could use it for that but it's relatively labor-intensive for such a simple task.
I've been using:
"featurenumberfield" IS '1'
"featurenumberfield" IS '72'
etc... but it's not as easy as it could be.
For instance, compare qgis:
vs. arcgis (sorry! I hate making that comparison)
note how arcgis lets you go straight to the page you want to look at / export.
in qgis if I want to go to page 78 I have to hit the next arrow 77 times if you don't know how to use expressions.
Also, when exporting in arcgis:
That's what I'm looking for. I can enter page numbers to export and only export those pages in the "page range" field.
