Copy master pages between documents

Recommended Posts

Apologies if I'm missing something obvious, but I can't seem to find a way to copy a Master page from one document to another.

Maybe I'm looking for something more quick and dirty than would happen in an idealised workflow.

I don't think you're missing anything.

At ths point I think your only choice is to create a new empty Master Page (with appropriate size and margins) in your new document as a start. Then, for the Master Page you want to copy, go to its Layers panel and select all the layers. Copy them, and then paste them into the new Master Page.

Thanks, Walt .. my other workaround is to copy the document with the desired masterpage and copy the content of the pages across .. which is what I'm doing as it's mainly the guides / margins that I'm trying to copy. Creating them accurately to given dimensions from scratch feels like such a pain when copying the master should be a couple of clicks.

Yes, the ability to copy a Master Page as a Master Page would be nice.
