Chapter 14. Master Pages > Using master pages

Using master pages

Master pages and layers

Items placed on a master page appear on the default layer for that layout and can't be moved to a different layer.

On layout pages, items that originate from the master page will initially reside on the default layer for that layout, but they can be moved to a different layer. If do you move any such item to a different layer, beware: The item will cease to be associated with the master page (you'll get an alert dialog box, so you can back out of the deal).


You can use the master pages in each layout as a blueprint for building your layout pages. For starters, they automatically contain a layout's margin and column guides. Then there are the items that you add to a master page yourself, such as headers, footers, picture boxes, logos, lines, and the all-important automatic page numbering command. Any item that you don't want to bother having to reconstruct over and over again on your layout pages can originate from a master page; it will appear automatically on every layout page that master page is applied to.
