      i have a page that i need to add a master page but it includes a line that appears at master pages but not at normal view,
      how can i exclude this one at appearance?

          I had to read your sentence more than three times to halfway get the meaning, but I still need to guess:

          You want that line, which is hopefully really a line (object) and not a guide and which is placed on a master page, to be displayed in normal view? That would mean you want to include it, not exclude.

          If it is really a line, then open attributes windows and uncheck "No print" (or similar).

              it is not an attribute issue, this is alternate, cause i can see it at some

              pages and at others no,,,

              i need at this specific page with the same master as the other pages just

              not to see this yellow line

                I think, we need some clarifications.

                As usual, you should inform us always on:

                1. OS
                2. Version
                3. Describe the problem in clear language and correct terms, what is, what you have done and what you expect.
                4. Provide us with informative screen shots.

                None of them was provided.

                      There are ways, but they're not elegant:

                      1. You could duplicate the master page with the yellow line, erase the line and apply the 2nd master page to that one normal page where you want to the line to be hidden. Disadvantage: two almost identical master pages, which you need to manage.

                      2. You could make two dummy master pages, one with the yellow line, one without it and nothing else on both. The real master page, which you want to apply to all pages is then not applied to al the normal pages, but to those two dummy master pages. The one dummy master page without the yellow line is then also only applied to pages where you want the the line to be hidden. Advantage, compared to option 1: If you later change anything on the real master page, it will effect all normal pages.

                      3. Worst option: apply the master page with the yellow line, then select the page where you want to hide the line and from the Pages panel mini menu select "Override all master page items", which sort of copies all master page content to the normal page, then delete the line

                          But keep in mind: once you change the master page, the change is not applied on that page where you applied "Override all master page items". That's why I rated it as worst option.
