Hello, shouldn't the master page apply any changes to the rest of the document that I have previously applied it?

I have this document with 50 pages and applied the master on them on creation, but after I changed the master page I had to go and left click on a random page-> apply master to all

Isn't linked the whole time? Sound like a pain if you have a multi masters document if you have to go find each one of the pages the master is applied to change it.

What kind of change were you making that didn't carry through to the document pages?

I have a linked pdf in master and changed it, forced link refresh because auto-refresh is not working on this version but once I moved in the normal pages there was no change.

Actually I noticed after I exported to pdf and returned to manually re-apply the master.

Interesting. Had you done anything to that PDF object (made any changes) on the document pages?

No, I started with 1 page, added the linked file and page numbering to the master page and then I added 49 more pages with the applied master.

From there on I only changed the page numbering start with right click on the page 1 and exported each time with the new numbering.

Sorry, but I don't understand that part of your explanation.

I wanted the page numbering not to start from 1 but from 401, so once I made the master, I added 49 pages and then left click on the first page->edit section->restart page numbering at. There I change the value to 401.
