Working with a Parent Page

The parent master page should contain all elements that are in common between it and its children. For example, let’s say you have a book with ten chapters, and each chapter will use an identical layout with the exception of the chapter name as a running header. You can create one master page for the chapter content and then make ten master pages based on it. On each of the ten master pages you will only need to modify the running header, rather than having to build each master page from scratch. The difference between this relationship and simply duplicating the parent master is that making a change to the parent also affects the same elements on the child masters.

Making Child Masters

After building your parent master page, select the New Master command from the Pages palette’s flyout menu. In the New Master dialog box, choose the parent master page from the Based On popup menu. When you click OK, the new master page will be a child master page (it’ll be based on the parent master page; see Figure 32-1).
