If it's the same element that's on other pages - then it's not possible - like @Willi Adelberger said, you need to create a different Master Spread.

 

The only thing you can do is to override object and delete it - Shift+Ctrl+Click - if you are looking for a permanent way to "hide".

Not in the interface. I assume someone could write a script to do that.

Hi @rschlegel,

Can you share exactly what are you trying to achieve, maybe there is another way to look at the issue at hand.
