I would love this feature, but with one thing added.
Imported files would automatically take the name of the original files.
Offending characters would be stripped or substituted.
Duplicate file names would have an increment adder.

Is there a way to import multiple files into a new document? The

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.
