Parent page A element appearing on Parent B page

Apologies if this is a silly question, I'm a reasonably new user.

 

I have set up two parent pages (A and B). A has a coloured box across the top – separate coloured box on left-facing and right-facing pages. B does not have any coloured boxes.

 

I am creating a 4-page document, applying Parent A to pages 1 and 2, and Parent B to pages 3 and 4.

 

When I do this, pages 1, 2 and 4 appear as I would expect, but page 3 has the coloured box from Parent A appearing unexpectedly. Everything else on page 3 is as expected with Parent B.

 

If I add a 5th page with Parent B applied, this displays correctly (without the coloured box).

 

What have I done wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

OK, make sure that the frame from Parent B is not extending even slightly into Parent A (and vice versa). You may actually have to move then slightly off the page edge (old bug, as I recall). If that's not a workable solution you can, of course, always override the unwanted Parent element onto the document page and delete it.

Drag the right page icon from Master A on top of page three and it should work. Right now page three is showing that the B Master has been applied to it.

Hi Bill. Thanks for your reply. I think I was unclear though. What I'm trying to do is:

  • Page 1 = A
  • Page 2 = A
  • Page 3 = B
  • Page 4 = B

 

What I'm seeing is:

  • Page 1 = A
  • Page 2 = A
  • Page 3 = B with coloured box from A
  • Page 4 = B
  • (Page 5 = B)

Did you make a single colored box extending across both pages on parent A?

No, unfortunately not - it's a separate box on both A pages.

Thanks, Peter. I've made the box smaller (to take it away from the page edges) and then larger again and that seems to have done the trick. Thanks for your help.
