  1. Thanks for this @Old Bruce, I really appreciate you taking the time. However, as my understanding goes (I just tested and can confirm it does act as follows) Replace Existing removes all masters from a page and replace with the selected master. This is a problem, because in some cases a page has multiple masters I don't want deleted. For example, multiple pages in my document have Masters A, C and F. I want them to have Masters A, C and D. If I understand you (and the documentation) correctly, the only way I can achieve this is by removing Master F, — either by deleting the master altogether, which then also removes it from pages I do want it on or — deleting it manually from each page in the layers panel (which can get time consuming in a 100 page manuscript) then adding Master D, again: — either by apply it to all odd/even pages and deleting from the pages I don't want it on, or — listing every single page I need it applied to. Is my understanding of this correct? Because if it is, the available control of Master Pages still feels a little... limited. Don't get me wrong here. I love the software, and the Master Pages feature is super useful. But I do feel that the control we have (especially in large manuscripts) could be improved.
  2. That does solve OP's problem (and mine, hence this response), but in a much more terminal manner than I would like. Is there no option to simply remove a specific master from all pages (or even better, a specific set of pages) without having to delete the master entirely? My use case is as follows: 1. I have two numbering and runner masters; one for left-hand pages and one for right-hand pages 2. However, there are a number of pages that don't need the master (i.e. content title pages) 3. When I have to export a sample of the manuscript for review, it needs page numbering. However, if I needed to add an odd number of pages the masters switch to the incorrect pages (i.e. left on right). Thus, I either have to: a: Delete the master entirely, recreate it, and reapply it or b: Manually remove it from every page it is on before reapplying it again I'd much rather be able to just "Remove Master From [selection] Page(s)", and then go reapply it where necessary. Is that actually possible and I'm just missing it? If not, is there any chance that feature might become a thing in the future? ———————————— Adjacent to this issue, it would be excellent if we had a Master Page overview manager tool, which, on top of the current options available in the right click menu (i.e. inserting, applying, deleting etc.) would provide the following functionality: 1. Provide an overview of all master pages, and how many pages each has been used on (which also allows you to navigate to said page) 2. Allow the user to see which pages of the manuscript is using which master page (at a glance) 3. Allow the user to remove masters from specific pages without having to leave the tool 4. Allow the user to add masters to specific pages without having to leave the tool 5. Allow the user to define specific pages that should not receive any masters (even if "Apply to all/even/odd" is selected) Is there any chance of something like that happening?
  3. Bump ;) Has there been any further progress on this, or are there any workarounds to this at the moment? I have multiple bars at 45° erasing sections of a layer to reveal the image below, I just want to be able to distribute them evenly. Is manually checking the distance the best/only way to get them equally distributed at the moment?
