I never use the “Insert pages” function because it creates a page override, which is typically not desirable. But if I’ve added, say, 5 pages of front matter, and I want to insert an additional page of front matter in the middle of them, I have to use the Insert Page function. I can’t just add a Master Page change, because it’ll remove the master page change I had already placed there.
The odd thing is that, even if I choose a master page design for the inserted page, I still get an override on that page. I find instead I have to do the following:
- Insert page
- Apply master page change to that page, which doesn’t display
- Remove page override for that page so the selected master page is visible.
Not a big deal, but it feels a little confusing to me. When I insert a page and choose a master page design for that inserted page, shouldn’t it insert it without adding a page override?
Thanks for listening to my novel.
