    Because InDesign does not have an Actions panel like Photoshop or Illustrator.

     

    Time for a feature requrest: Adobe - Feature Request/Bug Report Form

    I cant see that feature in future indesign versions in a long while...

      

    there are just too many "unrecordable" events in even the shortest of mundane tasks.

     

    What do you want to record tho, there maybe other ways...

    there are scripts to do that...

     

    and also,

     

    you can also create a multi page pdf and use a script like multipageimporter to position and create pages

    oops:

     

    I did edit:

     

    multipageimporter is a free script and can can import a multipage PDF (yes wait...) into indesign, create extra pages and position etc can be set too. Now, you can create a pdf from a selection of images either in Acrobat pro or bridge.

     

    you will need to download the script and place in the ID scripts folder.

    Javascript files are cross-platform so you can use them with both mac and windows...

     

    You are not suppose to open that file, just copy it to your Applications > Adobe InDesign > Scripts > Scripts Panel directory. After that you will see it in InDesign if you open Window/Utilities/Scripts panel... you may have to open some sub-folders in that panel. Then just double-click MultiPageImporter script and it will ask where you have stored your PDF.
