I have tried to override page items in InDesign page. In master page the text frames are threaded while I try to override master page items in the first page of the InDesign document the frame thread is broken. I want only override threaded frame in the master page. Could you anyone help me to fix this issue.

  • Hi. That's very strange, I have never seen this behaviour before. How does your page 2 look before you override your frames ? Do you see one number sign # (as it should be when threaded) or two ? How do you override the elements? Ctrl/Shift+Click? Does it override both frames or just the one you clicked on? By the way, did you consider using a single frame with 2 columns? Looks more appropriate here. And what about primary text frames? No need to override them...
