Adding a title page by using the master page doesn't work correctly

I followed the instructions of this video

from 0.44 , but all that appears is an empty page in the beginning…what could be the reason?


PS when I put in "2"pages than it appears, but as the 2. Page, the first is still empty… how to avoid that? And how funny, when I than delete the first page, the former 3. page becomes the first and the second stays the second and doesn’t become the first…irritating

Can you share the project that you’re having trouble with? There’s all sorts that could be happening but it’s very hard to tell in the abstract.

Couple of quick possibilities though -

  • If you created a new custom master page, did you copy your design from the Left page to the Right or vice versa? if the frames are only on e.g. the left page of the pair, then nothing will appear when that master page is assigned to a right-handed page
  • When you assign master pages to the start of a layout, the project title can disappear from the first page of music - you can change the layout option for when the First master page is used to “Any flow starting at the top of the page” to rectify this, or manually apply the First master page to the where the music starts.

Sorry there are a lot project/private Infos in it . I would more like to share to your address and not publicly …

Sure feel free to email me - you’ve got my email already.

For anyone following the discussion - the primary issue of a page appearing empty even with a master page assigned was indeed solved by copying the Left page to the Right in the master page editor.

A reminder for us all to copy those changes L->R or R->L!
