And if you use a good text editor, you could search and replace on multiple MIF 
files at once. Very carefully, after backing them up first.

Hi, Susan:

Have you tried saving files as MIF, opening in a text editor, then
deleting the unwanted master page definitions C*A*R*E*F*U*L*L*Y,
saving and reopening in FM?

In addition to MIF2GO for converting FM files to MIF, DTP Tools has a
free FM2MIF plug-in that can convert whole directories (and their
subdirectories) of FM files to MIF fast.
