The color is derived from the color code for the layer. You’ll need to go to the master page to edit the items.
If you that new to ID none of this is intuitive. First, I recommend that you buy Sandee Cohen’s Visual Quick Start Guide. It’s the be beginner book on the market: http://amzn.to/14JHq54
You may also benefit from some quality time on Lynda.com. This link will get you a one week free trial: http://lynda.com/trial/BobLevine
Thank you...I figured the color was simply a selected option. I will explore your links.. I am familiar with Lynda.com but the book is new to me. I've been working in ID CS6 for over a year, but I still consider myself a complete newbie as there is so much in this program and I only use it to produce two monthly magazines.
My biggest hang up is the master elements not appearing on top.
You have to work with layers.
Every object on the page is above all objects of the same layer on the master. So you have to create several layers, and put the page number on the top most layer on the master.
You were right....I added layers...and changed the layer my page numbers were on. Perfect! Thank you!
I knew I was missing something silly.
