hi thomas,

> I open a new two page document.  On page one I drew two text boxes, then went to Pages, Convert to Master Page and entered a Name and OK.  Then went to page 2 of the document and went Pages, Apply Master Page and clicked on the New Master Page and OK.  The two text boxes show up with dashed borders, but when I right cleck on them to get the Properties Box so I edit can only get to Manage Page Properties.  I cannot get to the Properties box so I can change font, or even enter any text.  What am I doing wrong?

you can't edit the text from a master page after having applied it to a 
and this is by design.

what you can do is
- set guides in the master pages
- add the text frames (as groups) to the scrapbook
- drag and drop the scrapbook items to the page or paste them to page to 
maintain their position
