Hi

How do I insert a pdf document into InDesign CS5?
Its a 5 pagews document. When I try to insert it, only the first page is inserted to the first sheet. Is it possible to insert it into inDesign or should I try Publisher 2010?

As your only importing a 5 page PDF the simplest method would be to load up you cursor with the all the PDF pages and the place them one at a time in your Indesign file.

Open your InDesign file.
Create your destination pages (No image box needed at present).
File > Place (won't state short cut as platform is not indicated).
In the 'Place' Dialog box tick the 'Show Import Options' checkbox.
Select your five page PDF file
Click Open
In the 'Place PDF' Dialog box select Pages>All
Your cursor should now be loaded with the five PDF pages in order, so five clicks in the desired locations will place the five pages. (when the cursor is loaded you will see a preview of the next page to be placed)
