    Select all files in a/the book and Import Formats.

    If the files aren't in a common book, make a temporary book for the import

    and management.

    The question is ambiguous.

     

    Do the MPs already exist in all the files, or is setting that up what you are trying to do?

     

    Are all the files parts of the same book, or are they separate documents?

    During import, FM will only apply the Left/Right and any custom master pages that have already been applied to the Body pages. If the revised layouts are on differently named Master pages, then you won't see anything happening to the existing page layouts. Check your actual Master Pages to see if the pages were imported.

    Don't forget to select (check) Other format/layout overrides in the "While updating, Remove" group … that one has bitten me several times.

    > The master page format is getting imported but the first page of all the documents still remain with the default "Right" master page format.

     

    AMP?

    Is some content unique to the first page mapped to master page First in the table at:
    View > Reference Pages ... MasterPageMaps

    That page and table don't exist by default, by the way.

     

    and are you performing a:

    Format > Page Layout > Apply Master Pages

    after doing the import?
