in the pages pallet--there is a flyout menu--click on the page you wish to edit the master text block on--from the flyout menu--choose--'over ride master page items'--that will place the master page items on that specific page--and adding a new page will still have the master items--but--big caveat--IF your heading is in the upper left on a left hand page--and in upper right on a right hand page--you will need to move it IF you move the page
You should avoid to override items from the master as much as you can.
- Use text variables instead
- User markers instead.
Content and master should never got mixed as it would cause a problem when you create PDF/UA or export to HTML or EPUB, as content is exported to EPUB and HTML, but items from the master are not.
So there is no successful way to do this... I will have to go through and re align each and every page in my book if i remove a page? That doesn't seem right...
you could make your page header text block the width of the page and set the text to right or left justified on the master page--then--when you over ride the header-and-move the page--you would simply need to select the text in the header and choose the opposite justification--or you could stop moving pages
It would be great if everything was perfect first time and i didn't have to move pages... but when people keep changing their minds on the content its a different story!
That's a good idea about making the text block the width of the page though. I might be able to work with that. I'm very surprised inDesign doesn't have anything in place for this.
I wonder how other people do it??
Use the text frame at full width, but set the paragraph to align toward or away from the spine.
