I am trying to add a footer and a background image that I can type over on the Title page. However, when I navigate to Master pages, it does not include the Title page and only allows me to add a footer and the background image to the following page. How can I set this up for the Title page of the document? I have already tried Format > Page Layout > New Master Page. It creates a border on the Title page but when I go to Master Pages, the Title page is still not included and I cannot add the footer or background image.
What master page does it say it is using when you go Format>Page Layout>Master Page Usage?
To add a background from memory, it will need to sit behind the text frame to be able to be written over. The footer text box should already be there on a new master page.
I'm unclear on exactly what you want, but it sounds like the first part of the question is that you are trying to create a new master for the title page and it's not working?
The background elements will automatically appear under the body page elements, so you can type into the template frame on the title page and it will appear on top.
Adding to what Barb said, don't forget that content placed within the
text frame on a master page does not show up on the main page. Many use
this text frame to hold notes about the master page or the document. If
you want a background graphic, be sure to click outside the text frame
border, in the page margin, on the master page. Then import your graphic
and move it, as necessary. It will now become a background graphic for
that master page.
