Nope, sorry, not unless you put the text in background (header/footer) text frames on the Master Page. Anything you put in the placeholder body text frame on a Master Page is only viewable on the Master Page itself; it does not appear on a body page based on the Master Page. And since Master Pages cannot be printed, it is hard to make any text you place on a Master Page visible to anyone outside the FrameMaker environment.

Sure it will...just use that Master Page when appropriate John Posada Senior Technical Writer "I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you've never actually known what the question is." _______________________________________________
