Re: Master Page Updates

Hi James,

This looks like an issue where you have to see the file to know what's 
really happening.

But just guessing, it sounds like there are text frames on the body pages 
that aren't generated from current master pages, perhaps because the flow 
tag is different, or because they were (gasp) manually placed there. There 
are a couple of situations in which text frames could have been orphaned as 

You might start by looking at the flow tags. Do they match those on the 
master pages? If that doesn't provide a solution, select the body page text 
frame and move it aside. Is there another text frame underneath?

Hope this helps,
