I'm following your suggestion with 2 documents opened side by side: the
"actual"  with its pages in the first one, and a dummy page with all the
photos I need scattered over the remaining workspace.
This is much more convenient as I can use different zooming ratios in both
windows, and I can scroll and span one document when the other remains as it

However, I have sometimes a problem that I don't understand: when cut a
photo from one document with Ctrl-X, I often cannot paste it on a page in
the other document; either the Paste function doesn't appear when I do a
right-click on the page, or the Edit->Paste or Ctrl-V doesn't seem to work,
and the photo doesn't appear anywhere.
I doesn't happen everytime, but often enough to be quite annoying.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but what?

Thanks for your ideas.
