I have a multi page publisher document. Let's call it pub1.affpub. I want to make an imposition to print it on a personal printer in another Publisher document, called pub2.affpub. Is there a way in Publisher to link, in pub2.affpub, to a specific page of pub1.affpub, or pub1.pdf, so I don't have to export pub1.affpub page by page? I could easily do that with InDesign, but I cannot find a way around in Publisher.

Thanks.

Yes, you can place an APu document in another APu document. Once placed you can select the page from the context toolbar. But inspired from your questions I had some problems recently to place a page from a facing pages document. See my question here:

If you are wanting to do your own imposition then you should export as a PDF as single pages and have the pub2.afpub set up how you like and place the PDF pub1. you'll have to copy and paste the same frame onto each 'page' and set the page number plus of course do the rotation etc.

The neat thing is if you place with linking preferred you can go back to the Pub1 file and make some changes, re-export it (using the same name) and then in pub2.afpub you can update from the resource manager to get the new version in.
