We need to add standard text (Conventions, General Navigation, T&Cs and Copyright information) to our documents. These would typically range from 1 to several pages of content. We currenly use a Master Page to add the copyright information to our documents, but would like to use master pages to also add in the other information (we will be using Conditional Text as the content included depends on the document). Is there a way to generate these using Master Pages?
I recommend avoiding placement of content on Master Pages.
You can use one or more documents with content on Body pages, along with Text Insets and Conditional Text to more effectively control common content in your books.
See FrameMaker - Working with Content for a more detailed discussion.
I'm aware of using text inserts - we use quote a few of them. I was actually hoping there was a way to to set the content in the Master Pages. Alas, it seems that won't be possible. We'll have to go the route of adding these in as a separate document into our manuals.
