Using Master Pages

The secret of producing professional publications, particularly those that run more than one or two pages, can be summed up in one word: consistency. In Publisher 2003, the key to consistency is learning how to create and use master pages.

Every Publisher publication has, by default, at least one master page. It is the base for every page in a publication and contains design objects and guides that you want to appear on every page of your publication (or on almost every page, anyway—you can selectively tweak individual pages in a publication to hide master page elements). In previous versions of Publisher, master pages were known as backgrounds. Although that term is now deprecated, it's still a useful way to think of the function of master pages. In practical terms, you can think of the elements on a master page as sitting below the text on your foreground. If you enter text or position an element on your page, the foreground object blocks out whatever portion it covers of any object on the master page below it.
