You should be able to Copy everything from a document page, and Paste it onto a newly created Master Page.

Welcome to the forums @Hyperion66

I think my first question is: “Why are you trying to make master pages from a PDF?”

I have a feeling that you may not be using the software correctly, but I cannot tell from your description.

If you can explain what you are trying to do, rather than what you are doing, then we can probably help you better.

Dear Garry,

I lost my documents that i made in indesign. These were for example invoice letter that i made in my brand style. I had a subscription via my son, but he finished school so end of adobe. I bought inffinity pub since a week and want to make my docs in there via the pdf files i have from my docs (bcs pub doesn't read indd exstensions)

Now i make a master page and then i copy page every element to that master which is time consuming. So i was hoping that there is a better way to do it.

Depending on the number of files that need to get transferred it may be a rewarding investment to rent the application for its minimum period (1 months?) to export all required documents as .idml. The result when opening those in APub will be better in terms of more comfortable and reliable since it transfers master pages, frames as they were set, text styles, guides etc.
