problems with master pages
« on: January 22, 2013, 10:08:22 am »
I have a few questions about master pages:

1. How can I determine what the master page in a document is? For instance, I have made three pages. Which one is the master page?
2. Will a change to the master page automatically lead to a change in the other pages as well? Or do I have to make another master page? Or do I have to save the master page again to have an effect to the other pages? For instance, adding page numbers to the master page.

1. None. Master pages are separate and you will only see the ones present when chosing Edit->Master pages.

2. Master pages work as a page background. When you change a Master Page all pages using that page as a background will change. But only the background.
