Column layout and room for side heads are two different issues. I did some testing, too. I opened an index file, which has a two-column layout with no room for side heads. I selected File > Import > Formats. In the dialog, I made sure Document Properties was the only item selected, and then I imported from a chapter file, which has a one-column layout with room for side heads. The index file retained its two-column layout, but room for side heads became turned on. Interestingly, the master pages were unchanged -- their text frames still did not have room for side heads. But the main body flow did, confirming that room for side heads is a flow property, not a text frame property. I reverted to saved and repeated the experiment, this time importing only Page Layouts. Except for the first page (which uses a custom master page unique to my index files), the index file lost its two-column layout. But room for side heads did _not_ turn on. The default master pages were replaced by the single-column ones from the chapter file, and they had room for side heads turned on. But the main body flow did not. Richard Richard G.
