I have an InDesign document with 50 pages.

I would like to add a new page after each existing page for a new total of 100 pages.

Is there a quick way to do this?

    A quickish (but manual) way would be to alternate between the shortcuts for Go to next page (Alt + PgDn on a Mac) and Insert page (Cmd + Shift + P) on a Mac. Wouldn't take more than a minute or so. Commented Sep 22, 2015 at 0:10

Without having to do scripting, you can use a macro program like QuicKeys.

Make a shortcut for the Insert Page function. In Keyboard Shortcuts it's under the Pages Panel. Use the shortcut for making the macro.

Setup an macro to Insert Page, then Enter (for the OK button), then goto Next Page (already a shortcut for that).

Starting from page 1, run the macro to repeat 50 times.

You will probably have to add in some delay between actions to get the timing right.
