I've set up master pages for my document, with the "different first page" option so I can put a narrow title banner at the top of pages 2+, and a wider one on page 1. That's fine. But as soon as I went to the "different first page" option, it became impossible to have identical static guides on all pages. I am using a 6 col grid, not that I have 6 cols of text but because it provides a flexible framework for aligning text and images. So I have 12 guides on the page, and whatever guide I place on page one will disappear from the master pages for pp. 2+. If I replace a missing one on pp. 2+, then it disappears from page 1. Oh how I miss Pagemaker. I bought and tried InDesign but it is just too much for what I am doing, and way too complicated. Is this just how Word works or am I missing something? There was no help in the help!
