Master Document page layout

Master Document page layout

Master Document page layout

Hello All

I am writing a book, that uses various page layouts, dependant upon the chapter/item ( its a technical manual with loads of images )

I would like to have a template that can be re-used for various sections thus retaining the look n feel - AND I dont want to be dicking around making it look that way manually.

How do I set up image place holders to hold the images i later attach to them?

I want to retain a master sizing/positioning for any image used depenant on its holder.

RE: Master Document page layout

When setting up your master pages you can create the first, then base the others off of the original. You can always alter the actual pages a bit. We found that out yesterday when we went to change copy from an item on a master page.
When making the selection of what you want to work with, use the command-option keys to select a master item to change it. Hope this helps.

thasts what I found.  I could add the frames to the master, and all doc pages would hold them - then I could select the frame on the doc opage .  command overrides I will have to try - but it rungs a bell from a book ( RealWorld Adobe InDesign ) - maybe I should have bought it.

I have to say that I found the info in the Help file contained within the program. In the learning process I found that it's probably one of the most helpful Help files I've found. I got about 80% of my questions answered there.

RE: Master Document page layout

Is Pagemaker really on its last legs? Using 7 on a Mac and have been told that Mac OSX isn't friendly to Pagemaker and should switch to InDesign - basically doing page layout and ad design. Hate InDesign, having become a PM junkie - what to do, what to do?
