When I create master pages and apply them the file seems to lock up and won't allow me to do anything to my file. Does anyone know why that would happen, I'm sure its and easy fix.
The nature of InDesign master pages is that the Master items can't be edited on the document pages. Master page objects can be unlocked on document pages (Shift + Command on a mac), but best practices is to avoid doing this.
A little more information on your planned workflow will help us offer further suggestions on how to best reach your goals.
Thanks super much.
