Hello, I've got a question about merging documents:

 

I have a book file containing a large number of separate InDesign documents, but I'd like to merge them, so the whole book is just a single document. Is there any way to achieve this easily?

There is a Move Pages dialog in the Pages pallet that allows blocks to document pages to be move from one document into another.

May I ask why they need to be in a single docuement? Personally, I find that working with my documents through the book panel makes InDesign's performance much better.

Many thanks for the answer! 

As for the purpose - my boss simply needs that in a single file.

You might want to hang onto those single files, and tuck then away just in case the large file crashes and becomes corrupt sometime in the future.
