Place PDF drawing - multiple pages

I would like to see the Drawing tool modified so when a PDF is placed on a Worksheet or Layout, there is the option to select multiple, or all pages of a multi-page PDF.

InDesign handles this nicely where the Place tool stays active after placing the first page, the cursor changes to show there are more pages to place, and the tool places pages incrementally with each successive click.

There have been a couple of threads relating to this in the forums:

I think instead of placing it on a layout you should simply be able to link it into a publisher set such is used with generating a bimx, and the local pdf location on your computer is used so that if the document is ever updated with info or additional pages then when the document set is generated (eg as a bimx) the latest version of the document will always be included.

I agree. I thought to write about this wish, but found this thread. There can be more ways to do this, but sometimes it's frustrating to add a lot of pages from same PDF file in a layout. Hope in Archicad 25...
