    Override a master page text box, but retain master formatting changes?

    theboyk Level 1

      Hello.

       

      I have a text box on a master page which is set to for entering a client name and ID number. In the master, it's something like this:

       

      Client: XXX

      ID: XXX

       

      Is it possible to override this text box on a local page in the document, but still retain formatting changes done via the master page? For example, on the local page I'd like to override the text box (via Command-Shfit-click) and then replace XXX with the client name and ID. Via the master, I'd like to, later, be able to change the formatting of this text — for example, change the font weight to a larger size. Right now, when I override the master item, while it remains linked to the master with regards to the text box size/position, it no longer links to the actual content's formatting (type size, etc.). Is this not possible?

       

      I realize I can control this via charachter and paragraph styles, but I'm just curious if there's something I'm doing wrong, or if local overrides loose all connection to the master's content formatting.

       

      Thanks,

      Kristin.
