Master Pages and Layers Question

Aug 3, 2012 9:37 PM

I am opening an old PageMaker document in InDesign CS5. The old doc contained many layers. The new InDesign doc contains these layers, but also many master pages (I previousy only had 1 master page).


Question: How do I delete these extra master pages without deleting the layers?


I want the file size to be as small as possible.


Using Windows 7


Thanks for help,

    Layers are a document property and will not disappear if you remove a page, master or otherwise. Objects on those pages that are located on those layers will be lost, however.

    Without seeing the document I can't tell you what's happening. Conversion from Pagemaker to ID can be anything from near-perfect to near useless, depending on the structure of the PM file.
