Is there a way to apply a master page to a regular page?
For instance, I can’t seem to get Freeway to Preview in Browser a secondary master page. It does the home page, but when I do another, it keeps showing the home page when previewing, so I have to keep going to the regular page to preview, but then I wind up altering the regular page, forgetting to go back to the master page. So, I need a way to reapply the master page to a regular page.
I don’t think Freeway necessarily previews the home page when a master page is selected: it simply previews the first page in the list. It happens that the first page in the list is usually the index page,.
If you’re working on a new master page and want to preview it, the best way is to create a page from it and preview that. Of course you’ll need to remember to go back to the master page and not to the new page to continue editing!

Is there a reason why I can only preview the home page master when I
Preview in Browser? If I click on my next Master Page and go to
Preview in Browser, the home page comes up.
A master page is just the framework for the actual pages that you
create. No HTML output is made for any master page. If you are
working on a ‘real’ (non-master) page, previewing will show you that
page in a browser. If you’re on a master page when you try to
preview, you’ll see the home page for the site.
