Hi, I am working on a book layout for the first time using Publisher instead of Indesign and I came across a confusing case of how masterpages are applied. Say, I have two masters, one contains the chapter titles and the other uses regular text only. Now, if I apply the text master to the document page on the left and the master with the titles to the document page on the right, you can see that there's something odd happening with the numbering. That is because the Titlepage master also adds masterpage content (albeit invisible) to the document page on the left. Why is this happening? And is this a bug? Though it also happens in Publisher 1.10.6.... See how the document is structured in the vid below: 2023-09-24 12-48-06.mp4 And the file: Master page item is applied to spread.afpub The reason I am using masterpages for this is so that I can still add and remove pages during the process without having to worry whether a page is left or right facing. Doing so, I noticed many issues when I had first applied a master to a spread and then overwrote it with a master applied to a single document page (leading to double items on page and content migration issues). While the problem is obvious in the example below, it really wasn't with completely different masterpage designs. 2023-09-24 13-09-36.mp4
Right now, if you want to drag a masterpage to a document page that is not in view in the pages studio, the panel does not scroll, so you have to escape out dragging the masterpage. Instead, if the pages studio were to be able to scroll down if you hover at the bottom while dragging a masterpage, you will be able to drag and drop a masterpage over a document page that is out of view.
