Hi all,

I'd like to place several pages of a multi-page PDF in Designer. 

Indesign has a feature to place multiple PDF pages, see e.g. this Link, but I couldn't figure out how to do that in Designer.
And I really don't want to place a hundred or so pages by hand...

Hope you can help (or add the feature). I've searched the forum, and a lot of people seem to request a feature like that, but I couldn't find any answer other than do it by hand. :-(

Simple -  File - Open - select the .pdf file you want - a dialogue will appear - "load all pages" should be checked by default  - file opens.

That's not quite what I was looking for. What if I want to place e.g. an A5 PDF into my existing A4 Designer document with all pages?

I really use the place multiple pages from PDF a lot in my work, at the minute Designer doesn't even show you a dialogue to chose a page from the PDF, you get page one regardless (unless I am missing something here) I don't want to have to open a multi page document and then cut and paste. The ability to set up a document full of frames and then do Place - PDF - some or all pages, and then put them into the frames is almost essential. One page at a time would be very tedious but better than nothing.

Once you have Placed a multi-page PDF, Designer switches to the Move Tool, and the Context Menu lets you choose any single page you want:
