Forgive my pedantry, but… http://www.yosemitecollection.com - so
that everyone, not just those with over-eager mail clients, sees
this as a link.
Anyway, I have a couple of comments. First of all, the reason that
some links aren’t accessible is because that large HTML box is a
layered item, and the boxes that contain those links aren’t. Layered
items always sit above non-layered items, so to fix this quickly
you could either make the large HTML box unlayered or make the link
boxes layered. See the Inspector palette for this.
Second comment - this effect would be rather more easily achieved if
you did it with a simple graphic. In any graphics program, make a
graphic that is very wide and not very tall - I suggest 2000 x 50
pixels - and has vertical lines spaced as with your page border
lines, placed centrally in this wide graphic.
You can do this in Photoshop - or do it in Freeway itself…
Making the graphic in Freeway is done by simply drawing out a graphic
box that is as wide as possible and 50 pixels tall.
Fill it with gray, make two 1-pixel-wide boxes that are each filled
with a darker gray, and position them centrally on the wide graphic,
spaced to the width of your page border effect.
Select the graphics, choose File > Export, and export the selection
as a GIF. (IMPORTANT: Remember to put “.gif” at the end of the file
Use this as your page background graphic (drop onto the page WITH the
Shift key pressed, or use the Inspector palette to apply to the page
as a background image.
Use the Inspector palette to set the image to be horizontally
centered and vertically tiled. Then set the page’s alignment to
Center. You’re done.
This page background method means you never have to worry about
having that item hanging around and being shifted accidentally, and
it can never slip in front of any of your menus, links, images or
