Can we attach multiple images to a pages document in one go rather than drag and drop in to a media placeholder?

    Danny,

     

    Sure you csn. Don't be afraid to try this kind of stuff for yourself. If things don't work out, just Command-Z your way back to the previous state. In this case it should work just great. Once your multiple selection appears in Pages, click off the selected new objects to de-select them, then select them one at a time for positioning.

    Just grab as many as you like in Finder and drag and drop it onto a Pages document.

    Thanks for the replies.

     

    Selecting a batch of images and dropping in to a pages document will not save time as I will then have to drag each individual image in to the designated media placeholder.

     

    I am looking to point specific images from a folder in to multiple placeholders.

     

    Sorry, I should have elaborated on my initial question.

    There isn't any feature like the one you ask for. How would the application know where each images should be if you don't tell it? One way or the other you have to point each images to its location.

    5 images, 5 placeholders, which one goes where?

     

    Unlike we infinitely prescient responders in the Support forums, Pages has not been programmed with the ability to read minds.

    Peter,

     

    Your frustration for failing to have the ability of answering my question is clearly on show.
