Chapter 1. Top Ten “Gotchas” for QuarkXP... > “I can’t click on master page items!...

“I can’t click on master page items!”

If you put an object on a master page in QuarkXPress and then switch back to a document page, that object is immediately editable. This seems cool until you accidentally mess up your layout by accidentally changing one or more master page items. InDesign is different: It won’t even let you select a master page item unless you really intend to.

When you do need to select and edit a master page item, try this: Shift-Option-click/Shift-Alt-click on it. That releases it from the master page (it’s called overriding). Or, you can choose Override All Master Page Items from the Pages palette flyout menu to release all the items on a spread. See Chapter 16 for more information about this.
