what? if you import two pages from another file and the text frames in that page are a full set of linked frames, they should be linked also in the imported page. there is no exception.

if it does not work that way, it's a bug.

what could be trickier is importing page 2 to 3, when the spread goes from 1 to 4. this may be made possible if the feature request below can be implemented.

as i said: i can look for workarounds or give good descriptions for bug reports and small feature.

i repeat myself: thereare two ways for me to work now: look for workarounds and i will spend much time in redundant tasks.
or invest the time in writing bug report and hope that the bugs can be fixed fast / the smaller features can be implemented fast.

i can't do both, since i have limited time at my disposal for finishing this project.

it's the one way or the other...
