Master pages do not appear in dropdown list

(1/1)

nuthnbutnet:
Hello. I am new to Scribus but i am slowly getting the hang of it. I set up a page with some design and I saved it as a Master page (called it Master Page 1). Then I made some changes to it and I saved it as another Master Page (Master Page 2). When I start a new project I try to apply Master Page 2 but I only see Master Page 1 in the dropdown list. Why?

mnawij:
Are you creating the second new project using "save as" command or are you just choosing File–>New?

I do File>New.
Basically, I have several documents that I need to create and they all need to be separate files. But they all should have the same background design to show consistency. So I created the background design and added my logo and made it a master page.
So, how should I start a new document so that the master page design is already there?

a.l.e:
the best you can do is probably to import the master pages from the "master file".

just go into master page mode and click -- in the dialog wtth the list of master pages --  click on the button for importing the master pages.

you could also create a template, but i'm not sure it's worth the hassle.
