Masters are sections of a site that you can save and show on multiple pages, like headers, footers and sidebars. Changes you make to one, apply to this Master on every page it’s in use.

Creating a Master

The headers and footers of each site are automatically saved as Masters, and you can turn any section into a Master too. Right click the section and select Set as Master, then tag it as either a Header, Section or Footer.  It’ll be added to the Masters panel on the left of your canvas.

The element is right clicked to show more options. In this menu Set as Master option is hovered over to show Master options.

Finding a Master

You can identify Masters by a green outline that appears on hover.

The section is now green to indicate that it is set as a Master.

Multiple headers & footers

If you like, you can use different headers and footers on each page or breakpoint. For example, on one page, you may want a horizontal header, but on another, a vertical sidebar works best. To set this up, create a new header, right click it and select Set As Master. In the Masters panel, you’ll now see 2 headers saved. Use the 3 dots to select one of them as Default. Your default header will be the one that automatically shows on each new page.

The top left Site Masters panel is expanded to show more options.

Showing on pages

Masters can be shown on multiple pages of your site. From the Masters panel, click the 3 dots beside a Master, then choose Show on to choose the pages you want. Alternatively, you can right click your Master directly on the canvas and from the floating action bar, select Show on.

The Site Masters panel is expanded and the Header sub-menu has been opened. The cursor is hovering over the Show on… button.

Detaching Masters

You can detach a section from the other Masters at any time. Right click the section and from the floating action bar, select Detach from Masters. Now you can make changes to this section without affecting the other duplicates on the site.

The right-click menu is open. The Detach from Masters button is highlighted by the cursor.

Breakpoints for Masters

Masters have their own breakpoints—highlighted in green at the top of the canvas. This means that if you make a change to your page breakpoints, you won’t see the change on your Masters and vice versa. For example, if you’re designing a header—which is by default a Master— you could add 3 extra breakpoints and style your header differently at each one. When you move to a different section on the page, you won’t see these extra breakpoints.

The header is selected as the Master and the breakpoint indicator is set to desktop.
