Even so, set the output scaling and orientation that multiple sheets are
needed to print the current sheet. Then capture the sheet/page you
desire and discard the rest.

Or you could do it the Old Fashioned Way we used about 20 years ago:
Print to PS and hack the PS with vi. Each n-up "page" is probably nested
within a scaled region. IIRC the red Adobe Postscript book was important
to have handy.

Would guess some of the smart context-sensitive text editors know
Postscript and can block select nested sections.
