I have a series of master pages, that are the same except they have different background images. The thing that is the same is the location of the page numbers, which are two text objects grouped together. However, if I copy the group, or the layer itself, and paste it into a different master page, the text objects move to the middle of the spread. How do I get it to stay in the same place? It seems odd that if I copy a layer that it would change the location of the text objects in it when moved to a spread of exactly the same size.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have a suggestion for an alternative: Have a separate Master Page for the page numbers.

You can apply multiple Master Pages to your document pages, and then you only need to setup the page numbers once.

Interesting, I didn't realise you could apply multiple masters. I did think it made sense to be able to apply masters to other masters, but it doesn't seem that is possible. I'd still like a way to paste something in the same position it was in when copied. It seems a big omission that this isn't possible in a page layout program.

No, you can't apply a Master to a Master.

If I copy an object and paste it on a different page it pastes in the same position as long as the page has the same size.

I wonder how you are doing this?
