"convert to local" button or in context menu

Recommended Posts

One can apply (multiple)master pages to all pages and you can alter them within any page that uses that master page,
Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a context menu option or a button or ungroup option in the layers panel to make an applied mp become local?

Now the adding>duplicate objects>dragging them out the mp-group in the layers panel seems a bit cumbersome,workable but cumbersome.
Not all is lost since one can re-apply mp's after clearing it from a certain page

And vice versa:promote page to master page

Yes, it would. In PagePlus there is a ‘Promote from Master Page’ button to create a local copy of the selected master page object.

It look like you can use the symbols detach button the make a master page item editable from the layers panel.

My option is to create anything>apply mp> on a certain page ungroup or convert to local items 
One still needs to get the symbol out of the mp assigned to a local page
