When i drag, say, a right-hand master page onto the right-hand page of my working spread, it adds the master page to the WHOLE spread, rather than just the right hand page.
On cs3 it worked fine, but on cs6 it doesnt.
So, dragging the right-hand master page to a right-hand working page, correctly affects the right-hand working page, BUT it also implements the left-hand page from the master page spread onto the left hand page of the working spread.
Is there a way around this, other than creating single page master pages?
Thanks in advance.
Maybe you're not doing it right. Drag the right hand master spread to a right hand working spread, don't release mouse until you see black box around the spead icon. Then release the mouse and see it is getting applied.
I think I've seen this reported as a bug before. Are you patched to 8.0.1?
Is the master assigned to your left page shown as the the same, or different from the one assigned to the right inthe Pages panel? My recollection is that the master is not reassigned, but that elements from the left master page are added incorrectly, and it may have to do with whether they touch the spine, but I'm foggy on this one.
Hi Peter, yes this seems to sound about right.
Although its not necessarily items that are touching or crossing over the spine, it seems to bring over BOTH of the master pages (left AND right) even though i'm only dragging the right-hand master page onto the right-hand working page.
I do seem to be on 8.0.1 and still have the problem, which is strange.
I'll keep looking and hoping for an fix to the problem.
I think that here is rally a problem. I was running into exactly the same issue this week. And as far as you know I have always the latest builds installed. I did not have enough time up to now to test around what causes this problem. I have 2 different master pages with running headers. The only difference is the text variable which is used in the running headers. No object touches the spine. I could not get a different master page applied on the left and to the right page. Because the project was urgent I ended up doing it manually.
I will seperate the problem and build up a file with only this problem then I will file it as a bug.
I had to search myself ;-)
The following postings have to do with unexpected behavior of masterpage items or a new stacking order of page items after removing a page. Though nothing with applying a master page in a live CS6 document…
Was it around issues with IDML from legacy InDesign files opened in CS6?
Or the issues that can arrise, if you simply swap two pages?
Or wrong stacking of page items on consecutive pages after removing page one of your document?
I'm in a hurry, so there is no great help from me right now…
