Using Templates

Templates are fixed in position, and are a good choice for headers, subnavigation, and other functionality where the position does not change from design to design. To add a template to a design, you simply drag it onto the Editor canvas. Changes you make to a template automatically propagate everywhere its used in a project.

Using templates involves the following tasks:

Converting Components to a Template – Select components in the Editor canvas and convert them to a new template.
Opening a Template – Open a template for editing.
Detaching from Template – Break the connection between a template and a design.
Removing a Template – Remove a template from a design.
Creating a Template Offset – Define a horizontal and vertical offset that’s applied to a design when the template is added.
Nesting Templates – Add a template to another template.
