This is called "article following" or somesuch. It's useful if you have a
document with articles that don't necessarily flow from page to page. For
instance, a newsletter with the beginnings of four articles on page one,
with those articles continuing at various places within.

To turn it off, when you are using the "Print" dialog to set up printing

1) Make sure "Generate Acrobat Data" is checked.

2) Select "Acrobat Setup..."

3) Uncheck "Articles:" in the "Acrobat Setup" dialog box.

4) Select "Set" to confirm those options.

You're now returned to the "Print Document" dialog and can proceed as you
