Related to this, InDesign will also let you place the entire contents or a range of pages from a multipage PDF file, placing the pages sequentially. This was a great feature to have when I needed to create printer spreads manually from a PDF.

Does the multiple image placement method only work with InDesign CS4? I don't seem to be able to call up the grid option in CS3.

After all of those options (of which half are totally unusable in real life) InDesign misses one which is as obvious as is needed: to place an image (using the gun) right into a box, whether the box is empty or full. I guess it makes sense it's not available, as opposed to InDesign(ers), I live in real world of production.

I know you **believe** that you're the standard for all designers, but trust me when I tell you that you're not. I use all of these shortcuts almost daily.

And there IS a way to place images (as well as other objects) directly into a box (whether it's full or empty).
