I come to you with another conundrum. I hope one of you have seen something like this happen before!
Each month we create a newsletter and then we brand it for our various clients - each client getting a different header/footer on all the pages. So we created MasterPages for each client, and when it comes time to export, we apply the Client Master Pages to the content pages and export for each client separately.
However, we have SO many problems with this because inevitably SOMETHING changes in the process. And I am determined to figure out why.
Here is what the bottom of the page looks like. in this particular troubling document. This has our own master page applied to it.
Then when we apply a client's master page, BAM - this happens.
See that odd white space? The blue rectangle that the More Information is sitting on top gets PUSHED DOWN for no apparent reason.
I have investigated all of the master pages. There are no extra pieces of anything. Yet all of the master pages are doing this and I can't figure out why.
I've looked at the layers situation - there's nothing weird about how the layers are set up. I've even tried locking the content layer but this still occurs.
WHY does this happen?
The only way I've found to stop it is to GROUP everything in that section on the page before applying the masters.
But I'm trying to understand why this would happen?
Where should I look for anomalies? Would there be something about the grid or baseline grid I should check on the master pages vs the content pages? Is there some check mark somewhere I'm not thinking of?
I just am totally baffled since there's NOTHING in the middle of the Master Pages that would be affecting the colored box like that.
Any ideas, you brilliant people?? You guys have helped us solve other puzzles in the past and we are grateful for any light you can shed on this issue!
It would be important to see WHAT is on that master page? What is on the page?
Do you work with layers? This is very important! Are all items on the very same layer in both versions?
Do you work with paragraph and object styles? It is a must do!
