I would like to make the following suggestions for Master Pages:

- Create/Setup text styles (Body, Header1,...) on a Master Page so that the pages based on this Master Page use them.
- Prefdefine Default Fonts/ Colors on a Master Page.
- Apply a Master Page to another Master Page to share common objects/settings (and text styles...).
- The possibility to export and import a set of Master Pages including the settings, to use them in another projects.

Thank you.

Totally agree with Ernsti on suggested features. Taking the import/export feature a little further it would be very useful if there was a way of maintaining a link between the current project and the project the Master Pages were imported from so that changes to the one Master would follow through to all linked projects.

First two suggestions must be applied when no document is opened -- not on master pages. It doesn't have any sense. After that.they will be available on all new documents.

Third suggestion is called "duplicate master page".

The idea is to create and predefine master pages with fonts / colors (and other stuff) to use on all (Master)-Pages that the Master Page is applied to.
So its possible to switch the text style for each master page automatically.
Also for export / import and use in other projects.

This creates a Duplicate. That means that changes made on the original are not passed to the duplicate. But that's exactly the idea behind it.
Adding, removing, changing an object, changing a font-property or color of any master page automatically updates all (Master-) pages based on that master page.
