    Because of what Macropod explained, my practice is similar to Tripper. I copy bits into a scratch pad in my text editor, and print from there when I'm ready.

    That's not what the OP said. He wants the default for printing set to "Current page", so erroneous clicks don't launch 200-page print jobs. It's happened to all of us, I imagine.

    For the OP, imo you're looking at the two worst PDF reader choices. Of the two, I would pick Foxit every time over Adobe--but I advise you to avoid both.
