How can we improve InDesign?

Hiding Pages in a Document

It would be helpful to hide pages in a way similar to hiding columns in Excel. I don't want the information gone, I just need to minimize it so I can focus on the specific pages I need. Accessing this action via a right click in the pages menu would be ideal.

    I really need this feature! The workarounds are terrible; saving different versions with various pages present, or what I end up doing is moving pages to the end of the document if I might need them later, but then they've lost their position in the document. :(

    While I'd love the feature as well, you can always right click and create an alternate layout within the document.

    I was looking for a way to do exactly this, with no success. This would be a great feature to add.

    I am looking for the same thing. I have an INDD doc that I need to hide 2-3 pages depending on the audience I am printing for. Would love to be able to just hide pages instead of keeping multiple files.

    I'm working on a booklet and need to print a version for a test audience that doesn't include four of the pages. I'd love to be able to turn those pages off and "print booklet" a copy of my document without them, instead of making a completely new file.
