Anchor a custom master page

Is it possible to anchor a custom master page?.  I'm using a custom master page for rotated pages to adapt as well the header and footer but I want to use the same text flow. When I'm inserting something before the rotated page, it moves all the content. So text which should be on the rotated page moves then to the following normal pages.

By addressing the master page usage, I couldn't find any function which anchors it to the text like e.g. tables or anchored figures.


My system: Win7-64, FM11 (unstructered).

    View > Master Pages

    Navigate to page MasterPageMaps


    Doesn't exist?

    Then do: Format > Page Layout > Apply Master Pages (AMP)

    This creates the page and an empty UnstructMasterPageMaps table.


    Designate a paragraph format (aka tag or style) that is unique to the rotated page content, such as Body.Rotated, which may wel be identical to Body in all but name.


    Assuming your rotated MPs are named Left.Rotated and Right.Rotated, fill out the UnstructMasterPageMaps table, such as:


    Tag NameRight-HandedLeft-HandedRange IndicatorComment
    Body.RotatedRight.RotatedLeft.RotatedUntil ChangedTriggers landscape
    BodyRightLeftUntil ChangedResumes portrait


    Optimal trigger/resume tags are highly dependent on document structure and may require some experimentation.


    Once set up, you need to do a manual AMP operation for initial MP assignment, and periodically as re-flow occurs. You can do this as above, or from the Book menu (it's an Update Book option)

    Save the content of the UnstructMasterPageMaps tables somewhere else.

    Delete master page MasterPageMaps.

    Perform an AMP to re-create it.
