I want to copy/insert pages into a publisher file from
another publisher file. Anyone know a quick way of doing
it without actually copying and pasting.

There is no other way.

Get a Hardy's or a Brown Bros red and you will enjoy doing it.

You are in the best country for a quality red wine and a good piece of
fillet steak.

Lisa,

You can open two copies of Publisher and cut/paste between them pretty
easily (object by object or page by page or even the whole thing). You can
also insert text box anywhere and then do Insert/Text File into that box
with another .txt or .pub (or other extension types) documents. I don't
know a way to only snag certain pages other than copy/paste or mark/drag.
If you use the drag between documents method remember not to save your
original documents because Publisher will move the objects you drag from one
file to the other.

FYI Tom ;-),

If you hold down the CTRL key while you drag, that will keep a copy in the
original ;-)

Cool. I looked in the help for words like "dragging" and "copy", but I
couldn't find anything. I also looked through the keyboard short cuts, did
search on ctrl, control, mouse, etc. It's cool that Pub has this feature,
but they should tell a guy about it... :) I did find help about the
Shift+drag thing (going in a straight line) and after experimenting I found
out I can even do Shift+Ctrl+drag to copy in a straight line. Alt+drag
didn't seem to do anything.

Hey, at least my answer was better than the one about getting a mediocre
beer and trying to make the best of it.

:)

This is actually a Windows-wide convention. Ctrl+drag always drags a copy.
Shift+drag moves even when the default would be to copy (as in the case of
dragging files from one drive to another in Explorer).

Thanks. I knew about it for other Windows things, but I didn't know it was
a convention. I've been using Windows for what, a thousand years now and I
didn't know that. I guess there's always something new to learn. You gotta
love it.
