Side Head / Work Flow / Master Page confusion

Hello ,

 

I think I am not understanding a basic concept here with regards to work flows.

 

I have set-up a new Master Page in Document A that contains a Side Head and imported it into Document B.

 

When working with the new Master Page Document B I decided that the Side Head needed to be larger.

 

I go to a Master Page view and then choose Format > Page Layout > Column Layout... I get the following warning:

I click OK and get the following warning:

The Column Layout box appears and I can change the Side Head width but, as warned, only the Right Master Page is changed.

 

How do I change the imported Master Page and what concept am I not understanding?

    Once Doc A's formats are imported to Doc B, there's no further connection 'tween the two, so really, this is just about Doc B.

     

    On the master pages, change each of the masters using the object properties panel, and you should be fine.

     

    IIRC, the Format > Page Layout > Column Layout works most consistently when your cursor is in the main flow on the body pages.

     

    Now that you've noodled with both the masters and the Column Layout command, you may need to adjust the steps slightly, but it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.
