I need to replace a couple existing master pages with other existing master pages.
I am familiar with how to replace master pages in general.
I have Master Pages - A, B, C, D, E, F.
I need to replace all occurrences of Master-F with Master-B and all occurrences of Master-E with Master-D. Document is several hundred pages in length. Document pages with these master assignments are non-contiguous. So, for example, I need to change the master assignment for page 4, 8, 10, 22, 40, 43, ~, 130, 190, 340, 347, etc.
I realize I can merely copy/paste contents between masters, or apply one master to another.
(However, I want to keep existing masters as they are. Creating a new mater won't be of use.)
I realize I can drag/drop a master on a document page to replace the master.
I realize I can use
Apply Master Page to...to apply a master page based upon document page numbers. The field to enter pages doesn't seem to accept something such as
D:as a viable input. (I've tried many variations.)
Factoring each and every page number for replacement would take as much time as manually drag/dropping masters. I can do all this manually, but I'd love something more automated.
Web searching hasn't presented anything of use. Often merely detailing the basics of theory and operations where Master pages are concerned. But, perhaps my web searching has been poor?
Is there an automated method of replacing all instances of one master page with another master page?
i.e. All Master-F assignments to Master-B assignments regardless of document page numbers?
Sort of like Find <> Replace, but with master page assignments only?
It had occurred to me that there may be a default script for such a thing, but based upon the script file names, I'm not seeing any default script for this specifically. I may be simply missing it though.
(I am using InDesign CS6, but have access to more recent versions if that's mandatory, Prefer CS6 though.)
