The last information I could find about import/export or copy Master Pages Sets is this:
Then this workaround:
I do not see in 1.2 any option to copy Master Pages Sets. Will this feature be soon considered?
I found a halfbacked way to get a master page setting in a new document (described in this thread: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=246&t=127503&p=691088#p691088) but it is not really practical for existing documents.
As I can imagine that it may take several months for this feature to be implemented I am interested at the moment in Daniel’s workaround but I fear it would be too much hassle because in these days of learning Dorico, my ideal Master Page Set is changing very often as soon as I discover a new feature and I don’t want to ask every two days for your help!
Daniel, is your workaround maybe something I could could manage by myself?
I mean is this something like unzip a master- and a target-Dorico file, finding some text in a xml file from the master file and copying it in a xml of the target file and then re-zipping? Or something similar?
If yes, this is something I am able to do easily.
In this case I would be glad if you could reveal your workaround.
I’m afraid the magic I can do is not magic that you can do yourself, but I can do it for you if you email me the project that contains your perfect master pages and the project you want to make them available in. I can’t promise to turn it around instantly, unfortunately, and I would prefer to do it only once rather than to receive new versions from you every day or two…
We haven’t yet planned out what features will be included in our next release(s), so I can’t say for sure, but in general being able to import/export data of various kinds between projects is definitely a reasonably high priority.
