Export more than one alternate layout at a time?

I have a file setup with several alternate layouts. One is a print document and the rest are various digital elements (email, landing page, etc.). I'd like to export all of the digital ones at once to make a compiled pdf. Is there any way to do this? I've tried adding all the names to the export box, but it never works. Having to save individual PDFs and then merge them is a huge pain. They need to remain as individual alternate layouts, FYI, so combining them is not an option. Help!

After tons of experimentation, I realized that you simply put a comma between the alternate layout names! Of course it was that easy 

Hi Megan,

you could work with absolute numbering if you define the page range you want to export to PDF.

 

One example: Your first alternate layout consists of e.g. 7 pages.

You want to export all pages after that. Simply define that range as:

+8-

That will export the 8th page of your document to the end of the document.

( No number is given after the "to". The plus in front of the 8 indicates absolute numbering. )
