Create a new document based on selected pages of an existing indesign document.
I would like to be able to select pages within an existing InDesign document and create a new document using those pages, much like you can with layers in photoshop.
In photoshop when you select 'duplicate layer(s)' you have the option of duplicating them into different documents, including a new one. When I am designing a business card for a client, for example, I present multiple options. I will make all of the options in one document as separate pages. When they choose one I would like to be able to select the specific pages and duplicate them straight to a new document, without having to go through the typical process of creating a new one. This would save a lot of time and hassle in the iteration process
yes, i agree. there should be an extract pages feature, without having to copy files and delete unneeded pages

Agreed, with documents these days albs to be made with multiple page sizes in the one file some designers can put many different layouts in the one file, I'd like to split these into individual files.
@Karnadhar Boro – your suggestion is great is there is only one layout I want to grab from a file. Very repetitive if there are multiple layouts, and I want separate files for each.

Here you go
1. First you must save your current progress.
2. Click on pages tool on right side
3. select you dont need those pages - Right click and delete those pages
4. Go to file -save as- rename to a different file name.
5. Thats it!
