Lesson 2. Setting Up Your Document > Applying the masters to document pages

Applying the masters to document pages

Now that you have created all your master pages, it's time to apply them to the pages in your layout. All the document pages are formatted with the A-Grid master by default. However, you will apply the B-Footer master and the C-Placeholder master to the appropriate pages. You can apply master pages by dragging the master-page icons onto the document-page icons or by using a palette-menu option.

In large documents, you may find it easier to display the page icons horizontally in the Pages palette.

1.
In the Pages palette, choose Palette Options from the Pages palette menu (opened by clicking the palette-menu button in the upper right corner of the palette group window).

2.
Under Pages, turn off Show Vertically, and then click OK.

3.
Drag the bar below the master pages down so that you can see all the master pages. Then drag the lower right corner of the Pages palette down until you can see all the spreads.

First, you'll use the drag-and-drop technique to apply the C-Placeholder master to pages in the document that will contain articles.

4.
Drag the C-Placeholder name over the numbers 6–7 below the page icons (not over the page icons themselves). When a box appears around both page icons in the spread, release the mouse button.

The C-Placeholder master pages are applied to pages 6 and 7, as indicated by the letter C in the page icons. Instead of dragging the C-Placeholder master to the remaining spreads, you'll use a different method to apply master pages.

5.
Choose Apply Master to Pages from the Pages palette menu. For Apply Master, choose C-Placeholder. For To Pages, type 8-11. Click OK.

Notice that pages 6–11 in the Pages palette are now formatted with the C-Placeholder master. Now you'll format pages 2–5 with the B-Footer master. Pages 2–5 will contain introductory material that requires a footer without placeholder frames.

6.
Choose Apply Master to Pages from the Pages palette menu. For Apply Master, choose B-Footer. For To Pages, type 2-5. Click OK.

Page 12 will require individual formatting without page numbering, so no master page is desired.

7.
Drag the None master to page 12.

Make sure that the A-Grid master is assigned to page 1, the B-Footer master is assigned to pages 2–5, and the C-Placeholder master is assigned to pages 6–11; page 12 should not have a master page assigned to it.

8.
Choose File > Save.
