So sorry no one responded;
but maybe no one knew what you were asking -
I for one am not sure what you're asking, but will make an attempt
what are these blanks you're seeing? - could these have been placed
there by the author for a set purpose?,
sometimes this is done to distinguish parts from another -
although other methods are usually better.
See further response intermixed below -

A while ago I posted what is below and didn't see any replies. No problem
because there is no real problem, with an ugly workaround. However, I am
wondering if I am the only person struggling with master documents.

is the index the document?
how many of these satellites are you using? -
are you possibly referring to those in space which allow for
messages to be sent-received?
what is the reason for using PDFs?
