    Master Pages - Text

    Lorie Zweifel Level 1



      Why oh why.......


      I have created text frames in my master pages so that all I have to do is start typing in my pages.  The outline of the text frame shows in my pages panel but I cannot use them in my pages...  what am I doing wrong?


      Thanks a bunch!

          You sound like you might be a former Quark user. In InDesign, master objects are not selectable unless overridden onto the document page. For the most part, empty master text frames are used for flowing placed text from an external source (File > Place...), the only way that you can get text into them without overriding. If you want to type in a master frame you can release it from the master by pressing Cmd (Mac) or Ctrl (Windows) and Shift while clicking on the frame.
