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.

In the atlas option there is the one that allows you to filter (by expression) what you want to print. Isn't this what you look for?

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.
