[Pro] Where'd it go?

I was watching the podcast tutorial on Master Pages, and near the end he explains about updating items on a child page using “Master Content” and/or “Use Master Settings” in the Inspector’s Palette. He uses FW4 Express in the video (I’m not sure exactly which build). I’m using FW5 Pro but I don’t see anywhere to make these settings. I know about Reapply Master, but that applies to all the items on a master page (if I’m not mistaken), not just specific selected ones. Did they remove this feature from FW5 or move it somewhere? I can’t find it and it seems like it would be a handy feature to have.

Thanks

It is still there.

If you select any item on a child page that is also on the master and then look in the inspector you will find it under Item General Settings(1st Tab)>Properties and there are 2 tick boxes (under the title) for Use Master Content and Use Master Settings

That’s what I was doing and where I was looking, Dave. Hmm. Am I losing my mind?

Oh, okay, I figured it out. The graphic item I was selecting was nested in a wrapper. I guess when it’s in a wrapper those setting aren’t available. I made another graphic and placed it outside the wrapper and I do have those settings available.

Since I place most (if not all) items in a wrapper, I guess this feature won’t be useful to me afterall.

Thanks.

There is an issue with master pages updating inline content on child pages - commonly referred to as the Box Model here.
