[Pro] Using Templates

I am using a template to set up my website.
I am new to all of this.
The template comes with 4 pages, to which I want to add many more.
Home, News, About, Gallery.
I want to change the layout and content of each page,
and rename News, About, and Gallery pages.
How do I open each page as a Master?
how do I change the names of each of the three other pages
(News, About, and Gallery)?
And sometime when I edit text and then save and look at them in Preview, the margins are not the same.
Is there anybody in the Atlanta, GA who can sit with me for an hour or so and show me some of the tips?

The Master page is where each individual page gets its static content from so assuming that you want each new page to carry the same basics as the Master then you create new pages based on the Master.

You can rename your News, About, Gallery pages etc to anything you want - just make sure that you change the Names in the navigation on the Master to reflect this. You wont actually have to change the links on the Master as FW will do this for you. But if you add pages then you will need to add entries in the Menu on the Master and create links to the new pages.

Which Template are you using?

You can make a new Master from any page that you create just by using the command Page>Make Master - but remember if you do this then you will have 2 or more Master pages where you will have to maintain the navigation menu.

I should add that there are Video tutorials on Master pages and on the CSS menu available on the Softpress site and on iTunes (Freeway Moments)
