I have created multiple master pages which I have applied to several pages in my publication.  These master pages are setup as Facing Pages. I have filled these pages with content, now I want to add additional pages to the publication. When I have the new pages it seems to mess up the layout.  When I try and correct the layout by applying the master page, it seems to delete the content but I have already created.

Is it possible to apply a master page layout but retain the content already on page?

This is a sad situation which I hope will be fixed. Until whenever happens the only thing to do is to add an even number of pages at any one time , that won't mess up the pages LeftRight display. Same goes for deleting pages, do an even number.

I'm encountering this same issue when I need to insert a page between existing pages. Then I need to adjust master page assignments to get the layout correct on facing pages - but doing that deletes content.

I thought maybe I was doing something wrong or missing the technique for doing this.

I guess for now I need to make sure I get it correct as I build the document! This project will be about 150 pages, so adjusting for an insertion in the middle is not fun!

I noticed this in the Beta but the insertion of a single page means that the following spread still reverses the page margins to those that should be for the facing ones.

I think it did reverse the margins correctly, but my master page layouts, based on the margins were off kilter since the content was no longer on the same left/right page. Not sure what the solution is for that because when you reapply a master, it erases all the content.

Anyone know how other programs, such as Quark or InDesign handle the insertion of a page in the middle of other content?

I think both use separate chapter files for longer documents, so insertions aren't such a huge deal since you only worry about the pages within a single chapter.
