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.
Parduz: Guys: do you know someone that speaks japanese for a rough translation of a short PDF? it is the 15 pages manual of a VST, but there's tables and lists, so is not too much text. I'd just need a translation a bit better than google, nothing more fancy.

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh
