Scribus – Masterpage layout on top of content

I have noticed that whenever I apply a masterpage to a regular page, it always goes to the background, leaving the the content of the regular page on top of it. I’d like to know if it is possible to do the opposite thing.

I have set up a layout where my masterpage is a frame, and it should go on top of the other page content, but I’m unable to find an option to do so.

Is it possible at all?


In the next version 1.6, you will be able to put layers from the master pages on top of the ones in the real pages.

It’s already in the development version 1.5.x.

For specific cases, there are workarounds to get “common elements” on top of the content of the page.
I would have to know your specific task, to tell if any of them (I know of) can be useful for you.
