Is there a way to import multiple files into a new document? The existing function only allows multiples files to be imported successively, which is inefficient. If a directory contains

One obvious problem would be the necessity to indicate the order in which multiple files should be incorporated. It would be easy if you had files with carefully organised names, but in general you wouldn't have that. In any case, would file10 become positioned after file9 or between file1 and file2? Would that apply in all operating systems?

If you needed either to list the files in the order in which you wanted them incorporated, or else to readjust everything after assembly, you would be better off (and achieve a more reliable result) by simply importing one at a time.
