Including editable regions

Editable regions allow you to make changes to designated areas of a particular page. Changes to noneditable areas have to be made in the template itself and are reflected in all of the documents that have been created using the template. Follow these steps to include editable regions in your template:

  1. Highlight the area that you'd like to make editable — a table cell or a layer, for example — and choose Insert⇨Template Objects⇨Editable Region.

  2. Name the editable region.

    These areas are the only areas that are directly editable within the pages created using the template. Figure 6-3 shows a page with editable pages included. These editable areas are where each page's unique content will go. Content that stays the same on each page should not be made editable. This helps you maintain consistency in areas where consistency is vital — such as navigation and site‐branding areas.
