I usualy print "as PDF". I dont know if your OS has this option, but in Linux Mint, you can print anything as a PDF instead of printing in a printer. It creates a single layer PDF of the document as it would be printed in a real printer.
In Mac OS X I know that every print dialog has a button to save as PDF. In some versions of windows you have to install a PDF printer.
Ok, so I go through all of the options with the layers in my PDF, creating the unique minis I want. Now I want to take the file to Staples for printing. How do I do it?
How I do I save just the variant sheet I created using the layers as a unique PDF file?
Sorry if I am missing the obvious.
If you have Acrobat Professional, you can change which layers are on or off in the save by right-clicking on each of the relevant layers in the layer panel and selecting "properties". There's a pull-down menu for default state where you can turn it on or off.
This does not work with Adobe Reader however, so if you don't have access to Acrobat Professional, then Hackbarth's method is probably the most reliable bet.

So far it looks like my only viable option is to print to the Desktop as Microsoft XPS document printer files, then save them to the USB, and and hope the Windows OS machines at Staples can open them. They functionally work like PDFs in terms of printing, but the small printer I went to at lunch time could not read them.
I love the layer capability, and for $5 it's a great value, but this aspect is a real pain in the tush.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
