In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
As your layouts become more and more complex it might be difficult to work on your page if objects keep getting in the way when you're trying to select the other objects. One way you can keep yourself organized is by locking page items that you don't need to move or edit anymore. I'm going to select this black rectangle, because I don't want to resize or move it anymore. To prevent myself from doing that, I'm going to go to the Object menu and choose Lock. I could also use the keyboard shortcut Command+L on the Mac or Ctrl+L on the PC. As soon as I've got that Locked, I can no longer select it.
In fact if I click, I'll select the Object that's underneath. If I want to lock this object, I could go to the Object menu or use the shortcut, or I can also right-click and choose Lock. Another way to work with Locked Objects is to use a Master Page. For example, at the top of this page we can see this logo, but I can't select it, no matter how hard I try. That's because it's living on the Master Page. In all of the other pages in my document, it's locked automatically. If I need to move it, I have to go to the Master Page. So we'll go back to our Plan mode and I'll go down to A-Master.
And now you can see I'm able to select this object and move it around. An advantage of putting items on the Master Page is that they'll repeat automatically in every single page that they're connected to. The other advantage is you don't have to worry about having to be moved or modified in any way. If you find yourself locking the Same Object on Multiple Pages, it might be worth creating another Master Page for your site. There's nothing wrong with having more than one Master Page to help you organize your site. And if it prevents you from accidentally modifying a portion of your page, it is definitely worth building.
