Chapter 2. Page Layout > Layers and Master Pages

Layers and Master Pages

In older page layout software (like QuarkXPress and PageMaker), objects on master pages are always displayed behind document page objects. This means that page numbers often end up being hidden by items on your document pages, and that you may have to copy the master page item to your document page to get it to display or print.

In InDesign, objects on master pages are arranged according to the layer they’re on. This means that you can put page numbers on the uppermost layer in a publication without worrying about them being obscured by images or other page items on the document pages (see Figure 2-40).
