I want to apply a master page to all the first pages of the documents in a indesign book.

I have typed out the chapters of a book as separate documents and have made an InDesign book into which I have arranged them in the correct order. As the first page contains the title of the chapter, it has a separate master page. Right now I am applying the correct master page to every document manually.

Is it possible to automatically apply a specific master page to the first pages of all documents?

  • It's possible to do with a custom written script, but unless you got a lot of documents, it may be easier and faster to do it by hand. – Jongware Mar 26 '15 at 23:58
