Editing page properties

You'll remember from Chapter 2, The Muse Workflow that when you first create your site, you fill in the Site Properties dialog box. This allows us to set up measurements for the page height, gutter, the number of columns, and margins. These values are not set in stone and you can come back to any individual page and make changes to those properties in the Plan view.

First though, let's ensure we understand the relationship between the page properties specified under Site Properties, properties of Master pages, and our normal web pages:

  1. 1. The Master pages inherit their properties from the settings in the Site Properties—those we set up right at the start when creating our site.

  2. 2. Web pages inherit their properties from the Master page that is applied. If a regular page has a None master applied, it inherits its properties from the Site Properties settings.

To change the page properties for all pages and masters in your site, choose File | Site Properties.
