Copy pages between books

I suggest that you make it possible to copy pages from one book to another. I think that this functionality would be very useful!

Please Please!  This would save me endless hours!  Since I want to work on books simultaneously but some pages go in both books and some don't.  I cannot just duplicate book or the new pages I am continually adding to each book will not be able to be duplicated.

I'd very much like to copy pages from one book to another as I often make two version simultaneously. Thanks!!!

The absence of this basic feature is very disappointing. After reading the blurb forums, it appears customers have been asking for this feature since 2007: http://forums.blurb.com/forums/1/topics/568. I am 2 volumes into my travel book and don't have the heart to start afresh with a different company so I've resigned myself to to merging my remaining 100 pages the manual way.  If they haven't addressed it 7 years later, I doubt they ever will.  And I will think twice about using blurb again.

BLURB

Get your act together and make it possible to copy pages between books.

If you do not do this you will lose a lot of customers.

Including Me!

AHA!

If you have started a project and decide it is too big and needs to be divided into 2 books, panic ye not!

Go to File and click on 'Save As'

Save with a new file name.

Delete the first part of the book

Off you go...!

Simples.

This would be great. If too difficult to implement fully quickly, can I suggest you make it possible to order a book of a particular size (i.e. 10 x 8 in) in both 'photobook' and 'tradebook' format.  Both these formats offer this size, so why isn't it possible to order some copies in high quality 'photobook' format and others in 'tradebook' format. This would be really helpful!

I simply want to echo what everyone is saying.  This should be a basic feature (to copy pages between books or merge two separate books of the same style/size).  Please create this tool.  Thank you.

Blurb it's now Oct 2015 and I'd like this feature too! Even if resolving the issue means the ability to have 2 books open at once and we can copy and paste manually...

Can this be so difficult?  Why don't you want to do this?

I guess I have to find another alternative to Blurb if they don't want to do the most basic things.
