Changing Master Page items to editable items

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to change an item that is a Master Page item, into an editable item, from within a page that has a Master Page applied?
For example, I create a Master Page item that is a centered framed text box that is formatted but has no text or just a placeholder text. In InDesign, if I recall correctly, I could Command+click (or Command+double click) and the element that was part of the Master Page would become a regular page item, ready for editing.
Is this possible?

I'll second that. I'd expect to be able to right click the Page icon in Pages Studio and select Override All Master Items.
An improvement over that would be to be able to override some specific Master page items instead of all of them. I suppose that would require making some way to select a Master item on a page it's applied to. Normally of course you can't select it.

Yes. With the page selected, the Layers panel will show the applied master page at the bottom of the layer stack, and it will be locked. Unlock it.

I agree, there should be way to create individual content to master page elements but not in a way it is done in a pageplus x9. It has "promote from master page" but ie. moving object in a master page do not relocate promoted object. Objects should still belong to master page even they have individual content and rellocate/resize with master page.
