Deleting master pages

You can delete master pages from master page sets.


You cannot delete Default master pages. Every master page set must contain at least a Default master page. You can replace Default master pages by adding a master page and setting its type to Default.


  1. In the music area, open a layout that uses the master page set containing the master page you want to delete.

    You can also select the master page set from the Current set menu in the Master Pages section of the Pages panel when any layout is open in the music area, but this changes the master page set applied to the layout.

  2. In the Master Pages section of the Pages panel, click the master page pair that you want to delete.
  3. In the action bar, click Delete Master Page.


The selected master page pair is deleted. You can undo this action if you deleted a master page in error.
