I thought okay I will just go into Edit>Master Pages and make the imported black boxes text frames. I clicked these boxes in the Master Pages and they highlighted as a text frames immediately. They were already text frames and were imported as such, they just won't highlight as text frames in the new document.
Quote from: JohnJR on May 17, 2021, 11:36:46 PMI did notice one thing in 1.5.7 ......The Properties dialog showed only the location and size of the text frame, but further dialog boxes underneath that were not the full menu but were limited to about four choices: line, color, and some others, but "text" was not one of them.
QuoteBack to setting automatic text frames in the initial New Document window, I found that any other text or image frames later setup inside the margin perimeter on Master Pages when Applied to the document would not select and the only text frame available was the auto/margin frame no matter where or how precisely I clicked on one of the nested text frames.
QuoteI must be still misunderstanding Master Pages. My conception of them is that repeated pages within a document that repeat many features, in my case a variety of text or image frame sizes and placements, are best constructed or Converted to a Master Page and then that Master Page can be Applied wherever needed without reconstructing that page from scratch.
