Somehow in the process of piecing together a book, I did use Master Page elements for most of my pages, but not for many other pages.
So now I have to add a small bit of text (the name of the book) and a page number (I didn't add page numbers because I didn't know what pages would go where; now I've got all of that organized) at the bottom of each of these pages. Y will be the same for these new additions for both even and odd pages, but the X factor will be quite different of course.
Is there something I can do to speed up the process?
I'm wondering if, after the fact, I can create two new Master Pages that have just these two elements (the name of the book and a placement for a page number), and then apply this to my pages.
I hesitate to try this in case it adds these two new elements, but gets rid of everything else. If that's a possibility I'd rather just enter each of these elements one at a time, adding numbers for X and Y, carpal tunnel be damned!
You can apply a master page without affecting anything that is already there.
If you are worried about losing data, you can try this on a copy of the file, just to be safe.
working beautifully SR. thanks so much
