    Linked master pages?

    ryanp50725768

      I wonder if it is possible to work with linked master pages in InDesign? My master pages are used in a lot of different documents, and now I have to make some changes in all the documents master pages. Is it possible to link a master page to several documents so it is only necessary to make the changes once and then update like you do with a linked file?

          Put them all into a book panel, carefully set the sync settings so that only master pages are included and sync them that way.

           

           

           

          You may want to work on copies to be safe.

            Hi Bob - thank you

             

            But it cannot be done that way, I think.

            My documents is already in several books and every single document has its own master page (different languages).

            So one book contains 9- 15 files - each file has its own master page. Now I have to change something in say the files that uses the italian master page - if that was linked to more documents, I only had to change the italian master page one time and not 867 times...
