    Master Page Data hide problem

    Bill joy Level 1

      Hi Experts

       

      I create two master page A and B in my document and one pages whose master page is B.

      Now using master page option for B master page I apply A master page on B master page.

      Now A master data is on B master page and also on page whose master is B.

      But i want that master A data is not present on page whose master is B, only B master page data should present.

      If i use show/hide property then it hide all master (A and B both master page data) from the page whose master is B.

       

      How can i do it manually and using script ?

       

       

      Thanks

          So to apply but don't like them... hm...

          If the reason of applying one master to another was to clone some properties (not objects) ==> remove those objects from master B (CTRL SHIFT klick and delete) after master A was applied.

            Thanks Jump_Over for reply

            I do not delete A master objects from master B because i use these objects on another page whose master also B.

             

            I have a downloded file (http://moryldesign.com/allison/comp_DWHfbenzcls63.indd).

            In that file same case exist but i do not know on that file which property is applied to do this.

            In file comp_DWHfbenzcls63.indd spread one contain only page one whose master is B-Opener, and B-Opener is based on A-grid/folio.

            Master B-Opener data (Headline TK Deck TK ...)is not present on spread one page while spread one page master is B-Opener and also Hide master page property is not applied.

             

            Master spread C-Jump Page is based on B-Opener but Master B-Opener data (Headline TK Deck TK ...) is not preasent on master spread C-Jump Page.

             

            Which method/property applied in this file ?

             

            while i try this as i told above then i am not sucess to do this.

             

             

            Thanks

              If I've got your point correctly...:

              use hide property for master "B" (hide only master "A" elements)

              not for page whose master is "B" (hide all master - A & B - elements)

                Thanks Jump_Over for reply

                 

                In file comp_DWHfbenzcls63.indd when i select master spread C-Jump Page and check its Hide/Show  master items property  then it show Hide master items means

                it is not apply Hide master items property on C-Jump Page master spread, while without apply this Hide master items property data of B-Opener master spread is not visible on C-Jump Page master spread.

                So which property apply on C-Jump Page master spread that it do not show B-Opener master on it(C-Jump Page).

                 

                Thanks.

                  Hi,

                   

                  exam this 1-liner:

                  app.activeDocument.masterSpreads[2].showMasterItems
                  

                  while turning this property on/off

                   

                  it should == false to hide masterItems on THIS spread

                    Hi Bill,

                     

                    Anyway it seems to me that Jump_Over's original answer is correct (considering your sample document). That is, some objects have just been manually removed using the "CTRL SHIFT klick and delete" manual operation. You can easily check this:

                    1) Unlock all layers

                    2) Go to page 1

                    3) Select and remove all objects

                    What you see then is the residual 'template' applied on page 1, which inherits MasterB. But you can observe that some MasterB elements are not present (Headline TK etc.). Why? Because the user has manually removed those elements from page 1 (using the CTRL SHIFT click method).

                     

                    What about MasterC? This is the same. MasterC indeed inherits MasterB but some elements have been manually removed. That's it.
