I've just started looking into Master Documents, although I have a suspicion it would be a 'sledgehammer to crack a walnut'. After studying the info I felt confident enough to try a test, but struck a rock almost immediately:

I made a small file with just one line of text, did File/Send/Master Document, got taken to the filename enter box (filter showed "ODF Master Document"), entered "testmaster" and hit 'Save'. Result: Error window saying "Can't create document". No hint of why not, ...

I suppose the first culprit would be permissions in the appropriate folder: do you have rights to create files there?

... so not sure what to try next...

o Save your small file first.
o Create a new master document through File | New or the drop-down next to the New button.
o Use Insert | File in the Navigator to insert your small file.

(Presumably there is some minimum structure missing, but what?!)

I can insert an empty file into a master document using either technique, so I think not.

I trust this helps.
