Applying a Master Page to all topics in a project in Robohhelp 2019

I need to apply the same Master Page to all topics in my RH2019 project. Under View, I select Topic List and Properties Panel and I set the Filter to Master Pages and I see which topics have the Master Page already applied and which do not, but I see absolutely no way of applying this Master Page to all my files with a single command. I have 20 separate projects in this merged help project and each project, in turn, has 50+ individual topics, so applying this same MP one topic at a time in each project is time-prohibitive. 

 

How can I apply this single Master Page to all files in a project w/ one command/in a single step?

 

Thank you!

Easy.

 

Go to Reports > Topic List.

 

Top left click the check box that selects all the topics.

 

Right click and select Properties to open this dialog and select the master page you want.

and yes, Peter, I did find this comment on your site:

 

If you only use one master page and want it applied to all topics, you don't have to apply it to each one. When you generate an output there is an option to apply a master page in the settings.
If you have set a different master page for any topic, the master page in the preset will override that. That can be useful in some scenarios.

 

but for the life of me, I cannot find this option/see this option no matter where I look and how many times I generate a project. 

 

Thank you!

My second reply and yours got crossed in cyberspace - I wanted to let you know that I had reviewed your site before posting. Sorry for the confusion - let me try this and see if I can see to what you're referring.

 

Thanks!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I know that my second post could be mis-construed as replying to yours, but they were crossed in cyperspace. I just wanted to assure you that I had scoured your site before posting so that I didn't make a frivolous post and waste your time.

 

Thank you again!!!

No worries  What you were looking was how to apply a master page to a specific output, such as when you want one for one customer and another for a different customer. There applying it via the preset would be the best option. You wanted it applied to the topics direct.
