text boxes in Master read only
« on: October 09, 2015, 05:15:14 pm »
Last night I created several Master Pages

Then I applied them to a new page.  The formatting was correct, but the empty text boxes I had created in the Master Page seemed to all be readonly.  I could not edit them.

Am I missing a concept here?  Am I confusing templates and master pages?

hi ed4becky

Am I confusing templates and master pages?

yes – master pages are meant for static content.
for editable content you should use the scrapbook ('windows' → 'scrapbook') or build page templates.
