Lesson 2. Setting Up Your Document > Editing master pages

Editing master pages

You can make changes to master pages even after you apply them. To try this, you'll change the master page to reverse the direction of the vertical text and see how that affects the rest of the document.

1.
In the Pages palette, double-click C-Placeholder to display those master pages.

2.
Select the selection tool (), and then click the “TITLE PART XXX” text frame.

The proxy icon () in the Transform palette determines the point of rotation. In this case, we want the object to rotate around its center so that it stays in place.

3.
In the Transform palette, select the center point in the proxy icon.

4.
In the Transform palette menu, select Rotate 180°. The text block now reads up from the bottom of the column. Choose Edit > Deselect All.

5.
In the Pages palette, double-click page 2 (not page ii) to switch views from the master pages to the page with the origami story.

Notice that the settings you applied (local overrides) to the title text on the document page remain in effect—that is, that the text is still red and still says “PAPER TRAILS” instead of “TITLE” and “ONE” instead of “XXX.”

Rotating the frame on the master page affected all the pages to which the master was applied, including the page containing the local override. When you override a master-page item on a document page, you override only the set of attributes that you change. In this case, you changed the text and the color of text on the document page. If you were to change the text or color of text on the master page, those changes would not affect this overridden object.
