What version of Visio do you have? I can send you a template with the title, page number, section title, etc. all in there and then you can use that for your project. It's not that complex, if I understand you correctly. Please email me offline Ed PS - it helps if your email shows up so I can email you directly. : [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Javier Velasco : Sent: Wednesday, October 31, 2001 5:50 AM : i've heard there's a way to do page element templates : which can be changed once to reflect on every page it appears, : could any of you teach me that trick? You need to use Background Templates, and then go into each page and set File/Properties/Background and set the background to the one you need. Even your guides will carry over into the document targeted, so you can align objects depending on the guides of the background. : while writing this mail i realized there's another approach : for the same effect, to use multiple background pages, on for each : menu item... i still want to learn the other way to do it. Not sure I understand "each menu item" - Send me a screenshot if you like.
