Your image document should look like this:

More importantly, your Pages Panel should look like this:

Take notice that Pages 2 and 4 have the page “A-Master” applied to them. Thus, whatever you do to the master, the same will occur on the pages that the master is applied to. In some applications (such as Adobe Dreamweaver) this is referred to as a “Template.” Whatever the terminology, or program you are working in, “Masters” and “Templates” are essentially the same thing. Let’s finish up the Master pages so that pages 3 and 5 have some elements of design as well.

I’ve decided I want to simplify things while making the pages still look nice. So, instead of getting crazy, I simply took the red box and stretched it out so that it extends to the far right edge of the blank page on the master page.

Like this:

The Pages panel should appear like this:

See? Nothing fancy…yet.
