I'm not sure if I'm simply missing a way to do this that's there, or if this is a feature request. For longer documents one great feature of InDesign is the ability to place a text file and have ID create as many pages as needed to accommodate the text. Can this be done in Publisher, or is it on the feature road-map?

It's certainly a feature I'd like if I'm to seriously consider switching (which my bank account would love me to do!)

Hi @Doug Chaplin,

this is possible. A simple example:

  1. Create a new document with one page and add a text frame to it.
  2. With the text frame active select 'File > Place...' and navigate to the location of the file to import. Click on the file and 'Open'. This will import (= place) the document into the text frame.
  3. Look for the red text overflow triangle in the right bottom half of the text frame's border. Shift + click on it > this will create the amount of pages and text frames to accomodate the imported text.

I hope this helps.
