Saving and using custom master pages

Two questions about this:

  1. Can one create a custom master page out of page that has already been inserted and formatted within the current project?
  2. Is it possible to save and export a custom master page on its own (for use in other projects), or must it always be accompanied by the First and Default master pages – ie, as a Master Page Set – that also belonged to the project in which it was first made?

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

  1. No, I’m afraid not, though it is something we would like to add.
  2. You have to export a whole set of master pages. So if that set contains page pairs for e.g. First and Default as well as your own custom page pairs, they will all be included in the export.

Thanks for the quick reply, Daniel!

Does this mean that any changes made to the First and Default master pages in the original set will *also * be duplicated in the exported set?

All of the page pairs in your set will be exported, yes. When you export a set of master pages, all of the page pairs in the set will be included in the data that is exported.
