In RoboHelp 8 Master Page is what I have found out is make your master page up
header graphics if you have any
Now open the Topic List window and see which pages have the master page linked to them and make sure everything is ok. Next if you edit any page that has the master page linked try not to edit the area that is linked to the master page. If you do the you will get the request to apply to all or just that page and if you just that page it will break the link to the master page. It sound like you have something linked to the master page on one of your pages and RoboHelp thinks you want to change the master. You can break the link to all the pages under the Topic List window and then reapply the master to the pages you want and you can do more than one page at a time with the shift or ctl key.
Well, most of the time this message pops up when I have done nothing except open and close a Text-only popup in my topic that is nowhere near the footer. Since I removed the link to our website from the footer, this problem has gone away. Sadly, I would like to have the link, but nothing seems to make it work properly.
Thanks for your help.

You might want to try creating a variable to store the URL. Then insert the variable into the footer. Configure the variable to link to the site.

This problem turned out to be caused by the fact that I had a date field in the master page footer with just the year. Even though it only showed the year, the field was updated each time and therefore prompted the need to save.
