At the start of working on every issue of my newsletter, I bring my master pages and paragraph styles in from the previous issue. This time, I get a generic 3-column page with a guide across the top -- no page numbers, text boxes, standing heads, nada. Was there some kind of change in the last update? I did the update about 1/2 way through the last issue. Thanks!
Now it seems to be working. Very freaky. I follow the same work flow every time, and had not encountered this before.
A better workflow would be to create a template with Master Pages and styles. Save it as an InDesign Template, and start every new newsletter from the template. This will keep small discrepancies from creeping in from issue to issue.
You are right! (Sometimes it takes old dogs a long time to adopt new tricks!)
