Master edits not reflected on pages

Recommended Posts

Did you guys really plan that every time one edits a text frame on a master the said master needs to be reapplied to pages before those changes reflect on them? Or is this just a bug? Tell me it's a bug.

I am not seeing this behaviour here, sometimes it will take a (very) short while for the edits to populate the Pages Studio thumbnails but I don't think that is what you are complaining about. I am currently working with only one Master Page and perhaps you have more than one applied. If that is the case then do you have a document you could upload?

Interesting... I created a text box on page 1 of a 4-page document, then selected it an cut, then switched to the master page and pasted.  If I navigate to any of the pages the text box is there, but it is not visible in the thumbnails in the Pages panel.

I had a similar problem.

In a master-page header I had inserted the usual <Section Name> marker, but when the name of the section was changed via the Section Manager, the altered name did not immediately show up on actual pages. Sometimes it showed up if I re-applied the master (although I don't see why I should have had to re-apply the master). Other times I had to remove the marker from the master-page, then re-type it, and then fiddle around in unspecified ways before the change would show up.

In the current beta (249), the problem is a little bit different. If I change a label in the Section Manager, I can see the change reflected "in real time" in the header of a page in the background — but if I click on the window's red close control (without clicking the window's "Close" button), the change still goes through. I'm not sure this is how the Section Manager dialog should work. If I click the Section Manager widow's red close button, shouldn't the changes I made be canceled?

(If this comment should be moved to a Section Manager topic, please move it.)

Sorry. Was working last week with this file that had several master spreads and I had the publication issue n:o running on two of them. After changing the publication number I had to re-apply masters to all spreads for the changes to apply. But this week, when I tried to reproduce the issue, it was gone. So no “live specimen” for inspection here.
