    Conditionally apply master

    david_r_grigg

      What I want to do in InDesign seems simple (to me!).

       

      On every page that includes my "Chapter" paragraph style I want to apply a particular master page, leaving other pages untouched. This B master page is already set up to remove page numbers and to have a wider top margin than the A master page. I have a book with 72 chapters. Yes, I could manually go through, find all the Chapter starts and manually apply the master to each. But it's a pain! And if I change the contents significantly, I would have to do it all again.

       

      Is there a script or extension or plug-in which would let me do this? I've Googled and searched here, but no luck.

       

      Even some guidance as to how to do this in Javascript would help.
