Quote from: a.l.e on April 01, 2023, 08:32:41 AMsome answers1. people want a text frame at the same spot on every page... except on those five pages. and then they change their mind and want it again on one of those five pages. it's not managing the editable text on a master page that is hell, it's managing the exceptions. and the exceptions to the exceptions.2. if you're stuck with using the symbols (which is a simplified version of what you suggest should be easy in 1.), i wonder how you could master customizable master page items : - )2b. (the constructive part) if you just want to have titles with the same style at the same place on the page, the simple solution is probably- to have guides in the master page to delimit the area where the titles will be (if they are always in the same spot) or add a frame with a dummy title to the scrapbook (not to the symbols) if they can be anywhere on the page.- if you're using the guides, you might want to learn about shift-click to create a frame that fills the guides around it...- then define a paragraph style for the titles (so that all titles will have the same formatting)but much depends on your specific needs...people want one single tool that solves all their problems, and it has to be flexible so that it really 100% fits their vision of the solution; and it must be simple to use...that's our nature : - )and if one tries to deliver that mix, the result will be hell... or powerpoint...

Take it or leave it.In the Scrapbook you can have single objects or groups of objects, they can be either dragged onto the page (you choose placement) or you can double-click the entry to have the object(s) inserted on the page at the same position they had when they were sent to the scrapbook.The double-clicking on scrapbook items is what most people do not figure out, and this is what would make it easy for you to get a frame in the same position on every page.
