I know we can insert multiple pdf pages into InDesign with scripts; however, when i do that the inserted pages take up the whole page.  Is there a way for importing them within a margin set for the page?

The MultipageImporter Script has both scaling and positioning options that should solve that.

Thanks Jean-Claude; however I have been unable to open the file.  My manager got it to unzip but it seems to be taking forever to download.   Any suggestions on both counts.  thanks.

Hi Lisa,

Mike Edel is now curating MultiPageExporter that originally was written by Scott Zanelli:

There are many options how a PDF page can be placed:

You don't want to open it from the zip file, you need to open the .zip and extract the .jsx to your InDesign scripts panel. See https://creativepro.com/how-to-install-scripts-in-indesign/
