Multipage Design and Production

Master Pages

Master pages help you speed layout and production workflow, maintain consistency across a design, and revise common layout elements across an entire project with a single edit. Master pages are as great for use in multipage print projects as they are in other common page-layout applications, but you can also use them for Macromedia Flash MX project backgrounds and click-through presentations for client approval.

FreeHand MX lets you define a virtually unlimited number of master pages in any document. Master pages can be applied to or removed from any page at any time in your design process. They can even be stored in Symbol libraries and shared across multiple documents.

Multipage Environment

The unique FreeHand MX multipage environment allows you to complete more of your design and production in a single document. No more designing your project parts in multiple single-page documents that you not only has to manage, but also open individually. With multiple pages, you can create multiple concepts of a design for a customer???or letterhead, envelope and business card designs???all in the same file, so you only need to send one file to the printer.

FreeHand MX also offers intuitive page management, so you can streamline the production of anything from website storyboards to graphic-intensive brochures. With the Page tool, you can work with pages directly on the pasteboard as you do with objects???and move, resize, and duplicate pages without opening the Document inspector.

Connector Lines Tool

Quickly map information architecture, data flows, and site maps with the Connector Lines tool. Just drag the tool to assign persistent relationships between objects.

Connector Line Styles

Connector Line styles let you completely customize the look of connectors, as well as quickly apply various appearances to give them different meanings in your map. For example, a solid connector might represent the standard path through your site, while a dashed line connector might represent the path when a user hasn???t logged onto your site.
