Re: New master page

   ###   REPLY TO sender  AND POSTED ONLY TO  framers@omsys.com   ###


The simple answer is it can't.  FrameMaker wants the same page layout
for all pages to flow easily: if one master page has a sidehead area, it
wants a side head area on all the master pages.

The better answer is of course, but it takes a (very) little bit of

There is a simple trick - FrameMaker does not (really) care about the
SIZE of the sidehead area, it just has to be there.

For your cover page, give it a very small side head area, like one point
with a one point gap between the sidehead and regular text columns.  If
you're a stickler for the size of the text column, make the text frame
two points wider (shifted two points to the left as well if necessary).
