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?

If I understand what you're saying, you can only edit Master Pages when 
the Edit Master Pages dialog is active, in which case Properties and 
everything will work. As soon as you close the MP dialog, your MP is 
frozen and cannot be edited.
