First, create your shape and drag it to a stencil to add it as a master
shape. You can rename it once it's in the stencil (which should also be set
to editable).
Then, run the following code from the VBA editor. Be sure to change the
stencil and shape name to your own stencil and shape name as indicated in
the comments.

Sub IterateAllPages()
Dim dirName As String

Dim pgs As Pages
Dim n As Integer
Dim pg As Page
Dim shpObj As Shape

Dim X As Double ' Y coordinate to drop the shape
Dim Y As Double ' X coordinate to drop the shape
X = 4.25
Y = 9

Set pgs = Application.ActiveDocument.Pages
For n = 1 To pgs.Count

Set pg = pgs(n)
If pg.Background = False Then
' Don't make changes to background pages
' Change ScreenElements.vss to your stencil name
' Change bluerow to your master shape name
Set shpObj =
X, Y)
set shpObj=nothing
End If

Next n

Set pBackground = Nothing
set pg=nothing
Set pgs = Nothing

End Sub
