Master Page Objects

You can create, modify and delete objects on master pages just like objects on normal pages in your document. To edit a master page's objects, you must display the master page in the document window.


To display a master page in the document window: Click the Go to Page button. The Go to Page dialog box will appear. Choose a master page from the Chapter pop-up menu. Choose Left, Center or Right from the Side pop-up menu for double-sided master pages. Click OK.

NoteChoose Go to Master Page from the Scripts menu to display the master page side for the current page. Choose it again to display the previous page.

Master page objects can be displayed on top of or below objects on normal pages. You can also hide master page objects for specific pages in case you want to setup a page differently than the master page on which it is based. Regardless of how the master page objects are shown on normal pages, they are not editable on normal pages; clicking on them will have no effect.
