"align:in inspector

If I change the “align” property in the inspector (second tab) of the master pages nor the website pages nothing happens whatever I choose ? Why is this ?

Can you say a little more about what you are expecting to happen? What width have you defined for your page? Align means that the page is set to a defined width, and then shifts to the left (which is default anyway), center, or right of the available window area as long as the window is wider than the defined page width.

I would expect that the webpages (based on masterpages and all content on all pages is centered on the pages ) would be centered on a monitor which has a smaller resolution than the resolution set in the inspector.

Have you verified that the child page settings are still linked to the master?

As long as the notional “page” is smaller than the browser’s window, then it should appear centered within the window. But if the window is narrower than the page, then it will stick at the left and crop off at the right, I think. It will definitely not go into negative left and right margin to maintain the illusion of centering.

the page size in resolution (as defined in the inspector) is bigger than the monitor resolution. Whatever I choose in the “Align” option nothing changes after publishing and it is always aligned to the left. And yes I always empty the cash memory before viewing.

I like freeway 5.5 very much except the fact that the “box model” principle seems not to work in freeway 5.5 and I have to find weird workarounds to get it pseudo responsive. I wonder if I upgrade to version 7 if it is possible to easily change the present 5.5 version of my website design into the box-model variant without having to start from scratch.

If this is true, then read over what I said just before this. You cannot center a thing that is larger than the container you are trying to center it in. The window must be larger than the defined width of the page, or else it will align left and crop right. There’s nothing you can do about this in any version of Freeway.

What will work is if your page is set to a percentage width less than 100% – that will always be smaller than the window, and thus can be centered.

No the “thing” is same size as the container but the container is smaller than my screen resolution. So when I publish it it is always left aligned.

Not with your current attitude.

No idea what you are hinting at.

I second what Thomas is saying… it’s not the Freeway version that must be
the problem, but how you are practicing the box-model method. Or the
item-centering method.

Post your problem pages online to get more specific directions on what to
do right. Maybe subscribe to Thomas’ screencast series on the Freeway
box-model method for a refresher.

Ok let me rephrace it (keep in mind English is not my native language) : MY content is not suitable for the “box model”. I tried the video tutorial with colour bands (as shown in the tutorial) in the box model and that works but as soon as I do it with my graphic items it seems not to work anymore (i even started with a blanc sheet as in the tutorial). Ok I will look for more tutorials maybe I will get the clue how to implement my content in the box model.

by the way this is the tutorial I followed : http://users.softpress.com/chrissowley/boxmodel-tutorial.pdf

In this tutorial all the content is generated inside Freeway. I assumed it would work also with content generated in other application. Maybe that is my fault.

Also my perception was that to stile your website in freeway you would not need applications like Brackets to dive into the code behind Freeway but that FW is a graphic orientated tool to design a website with minimum code knowlegde (a kind of design your own website for dummies like me). Probably I am wrong again with this assumption.

Actually the Kimmich webdesign http://www.kimmich-dm.de/freeway-pro.html website setup looks a little as mine namely a top graphic band a middle wide content part and a bottom narrow band. That is the only thing I want. Mind that when zooming out with “controll -” extremely the top bar also false apart but that is just a minor issue because nobody will do that in real life. So can this be done in FW 5.5 ? I tried to make it responsive using the box model as explained in the video tutorial http://users.softpress.com/chrissowley/boxmodel-tutorial.pdf but it did not work at all.

The whole box model as explaned in http://users.softpress.com/chrissowley/boxmodel-tutorial.pdf
I only get to work with “solid colours” as background. Question I have is how can I get it to work with a “graphic file” as background ?

I “dowloaded” (kind of on-line version not a real download) the trial of FW7. It turns out that this is in fact FW6 if you look at the filename of your saved document. Also in this version the same problem. You can only use the box-model with “solid colours”. Hopefully there will be a FW7 trial online soon which fixed this problem. Also a good manual would be nice.
