Copy/Move Page to Different Document?

Recommended Posts

Sadly, No.

Guides cannot be copied nor can margins.

You can Select All and copy to the clipboard and paste stuff like Text Frames and Picture Frames with content etc and it will paste into the centre of the New Document page.

I’m not on my Windows system right now (or I would have tried it myself!) but can’t you place another document in the current one? :/

Thank you, guys! :)

Oh, this is an important point. There must be a way to share pages, along with guides and stuff, directly between documents. If that isn’t a feature request already, please understand that I would love to have the mentioned option. :)

Yes, Alfred, it is possible to place a document into another one, and the placed document will have its margins and guides, when double-clicked, but the margins and guides won’t “show through.” They won’t be active in the document where it has been placed. Hmm. :(

I have an Affinity Publisher document and would like to move multiple pages from another AP document or a pdf into it. It would be nice if I could drag a series of pages from one document into the other.

The only way I can see adding the pages is manually, one at a time. Am I missing an easier way?

A document merge tool will also help.

You still cannot copy a page from the pages panel to paste into another document, but we have had a major improvement in 1.8 since this thread was started. You can right-click on a page in the Pages Studio and select "Add Pages from File…" Alternatively, you can use the menu item Document->Add Pages from File…

I think this is basically what you are looking for in a "document merge tool."

By the way, welcome to the forum! :)
