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.
The feature is now available in the InDesign PreRelease build(v19.0.0.093) and above. Please try out the feature and share feedback.

Similar to how the apple iPad can hide layers instead of deleting them, that would be very helpful when designing a living document on inDesign.
How is this not a feature! Google slides and powerpoint both have this.
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. :(
Can this please be a thing!
This would be so good!
I need this

This is a sorely needed addition and would improve the program immensely. Seems so basic.
Is this feature patented by PowerPoint?
Seems like such a baseline feature.
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.
Include spread hide option

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.
Have the ability to hide pages in the indesign railway. For example, for the creation of a book, have the possibility to exclude some pages.
First off, this whole issue revolves around the fact that there are left and right navigation arrows built within the Publish Online interface.
In the document I'm currently making, I am using my own custom navigation arrows within my document. I have set these arrows to skip over certain pages because they will be accessing them through other buttons (in short, these navigation arrows I've created won't be leading them in a linear fashion through the document.
These work fine, but the only issue is the OTHER arrows that are actually a part of Publish Online's interface. These cycle straight through linearly. I would either like for there to be an option to hide certain pages within InDesign so that these arrows skip over them as well. OR the other solution is to have the ability to get rid of the Publish Online arrows altogether (or maybe even just change the color of them to the background gray so that the viewer won't even know they're there).
