[Pro] Can you explain this? (school me please)

simple question,

Why would a brand new graphic text item drawn on the Master1 page NOT appear on some pages that have (master1) next to the page name?

It is like something said for that site page…do not read anything new added to master page on this page…

How do I get a site page to be connected to master1 again? DO I hit “reapply master?”

Thanks,

Barry

Well, I don;t think I want “reapply master” becuase when I did that, everything from my Master1 page showed up on this site page that is having the trouble. Now maybe it just went OVER what I had on the site page (not sure) and I would have to delete that stuff off (?), but it looked like I lost what was on the site page (ex. paragraphs of text)

If you modify anything on a page that came from a master page the link is broken from that point on. Reapplying the master as you have discovered simply plops all the original master content onto the page along with everything else that was added separately. The moral is don’t modify master page items on individual pages unless you intend to knowingly break the link.

As an option you could have started a new page from the master, then copied the extra old page content to the new page.

Another trick is to create an entirely blank master page, switch your page to the blank master, delete any remaining master elements that this first step didn’t take care of, and finally reapply the original master.

Yes Walt- love it.

p.s. you were so right- would have been near impossible to redo site the easily way we discussed with flexible. On way to finishing making all pages 980pxls and even this is a lot of work.
