Yes. I wrote in this thread: "if I want say the cover page and page 7, which has a diagram, I'll bring it up in Acrobat, delete pages 2 to 6, and print two pages [on one sheet] in my duplex printer."
I've had duplex printers at work and at home for some years now, and I'm rarely happy to print out stuff without using both sides of the paper. I have most of my engineering data in my computers, but for my designs I want a usable set of real paper in a folder for quick viewing by myself and others. This includes mini one-sheet versions of datasheets for the most important or unusual parts in my design. Given a two- page budget for a mini single-sheet-of-paper datasheet, it's rare for the best two pages to be the first two. It's usually the first page plus one other partway into the document. But I'm forced to live with the first two for locked documents.
You don't add comments to datasheets?? Such as where to get the part, its price, whether its in your preferred inventory, alternate choices, little gotcha's missing from the datasheet, additional information you learned from using the part, even some bench measurements? It's not unusual for me to bring up some datasheet, and discover an important relevant comment I had added years before and forgotten about.
Please tell me again how the customer benefits from being forced to live with locked datasheets?
