I used to draw a picture box on my master page and then insert a multi page PDF by choosing place and all pages. I can no longer place a multi page PDF using the master page picture window. Does anyone know why?

No idea why it's not working.

 

However, there's a very clever script for doing this

It's a known bug with 17.2. Adobe are aware of it. You can roll back to 17.1 or wait for a fix.

Hi,

see into my bug report at InDesign UserVoice and vote for fixing the issue:

 

Place multi-page PDF pages: Place Gun will be unloaded after first page is placed to a frame
Uwe Laubender, Mar 28, 2022


New bug with InDesign 17.2 that I cannot see with InDesign 17.1.
[1] Load multiple PDF pages from a multi-page PDF to the place gun.
[2] Hover the loaded cursor over a graphic frame to place the first page in that frame
[3] Click to place the first page.

 

Result:
The first page is placed to the frame

BUG: The rest of the loaded PDF pages in the place gun are unloaded. The place gun is empty after you placed the first of several pages to a frame.

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender
