I number my indesign document using the master page and type>insert page number method. Often I have to copy paste my a4 sheets on one big a1 sheet to get print. If I copy paste the a4 sheet, the master objects don’t copy paste on the a1 size sheet. How should I do the copying pasting so that the new a1 sheet has all the page number of the a4 sheet?
If you want to assemble A4 sheets on a big A1 sheet, don't do it with InDesign objects.
Do it with exported/placed PDFs or placed InDesign files.

There are numerous obstacles, if you assemble InDesign objects of different files in a different file:
