Linking templates

When using a template to create a new page, a link can be kept to the template. A page (or template) that is linked with its original template is automatically updated if the template is changed.

When a page is linked to a template, the objects that form the template cannot be accessed from the page by the usual double-click. To display the properties of these objects, hold the Control (CTRL) key down and double-click the object you want to view properties for. Alternatively, choose Tools | Goto Object, select the group, and click OK. However, most of these properties are read-only.

Note: You can cut the link to the template at any time using Edit | Cut Link, but you cannot re-link a page or template with its original template after the link has been cut.
