Default InDesign Master Pages

Has anyone had an issue with exporting an InDesign file into FusionPro due to master pages? I am able to select the text frames & click them to be variable frames while in InDesign, but when it opens up in FusionPro, there are no variable frames. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so how can it be resolved? Thanks

Did you define a data source in Fusion Pro?

Yes the data source is defined & has nothing to do with the issue. The problem is that there is no text frame transfer from InDesign to FusionPro/Acrobat

OK, just thought I would ask, since I made that mistake before.

FusionPro only exports body pages from InDesign, because master pages don't fit into FusionPro's PDF-based template model.

How many frames are we talking about? It might be easier just to recreate them in Acrobat after exporting from InDesign.

Perhaps posting the InDesign file would be helpful.

There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

I think recreating the file without a master would be best. I don't use them, but the files were sent to me this way. Thanks for the help.

I was wondering if anyone else had come back to this issue. I've worked on files since & had success but I'm working on a file now that has 10 small text frames that will not carry over. They are just text frames & no matter what I do to them, they will not show up once exported. Has anyone else run into this?

Can you answer any of my questions? How many frames are we talking about? Can you post a file?
