How do I resize a page while preserving liquid layout, without affecting other pages

Hi,

 

When I drag a page to change its size while holding down alt it preserves my liquid formatting, but it also changes the size of every other page (I am making e-blasts and they are all different lengths so this is an issue). When I use the page dimensions box to alter the dimensions of the page, it does not honor my liquid formatting (just a pin bottom footer which would end up being cropped if I were to shorten the page), but it does resize locally.

Does anyone have a solution for me?

I just ended up overriding my liquid layout headers and footers on each page and resizing locally by manually inputting page heights. At least it seems to honor my liquid layout rules when they're overriden and applied locally. Kind of a pain and I wish I could just drag the page size to make this work instead of guessing and checking at page height values.

In the Pages panel, do you have just that one page targeted? Or are many pages targeted (hinted in blue)?

I do not, and I just tried selecting multiple pages and going back to selecting a single page but it didn't change anything for me. I've also tried restarting indesign.

Incase it changes anything, the footer comes from a master page.
