Items from the right page of a master page spread are always visible.

Recommended Posts

When I create a master page spread, and then apply that master page to my test document, items from the right page are always visible – even if the next right page is using a different master or if there isn't a right page at all! It's a bit weird, is this normal behavior? Am I missing something or is this a bug? I've attached a photo.

It is the way it is, annoying or useful depending on your point of view. If you turn off View > Show Text Flow then the blue outlined Master Page Test Frames will disappear.

Thanks! I would have never thought of that.

What makes that feature useful for folks?

At times I will make three Master Pages, single page Left, single page Right, and a Double page spread with essentially  the same items on them. When viewing I would like to know if I have inadvertently applied the Double page to the first or last (single) page. This is an admitted edge case.
