Helpful Pointers

  • If you create your guide by using an existing guide as a template, all content from this guide will also be copied to your newly created guide.
  • The Command Bar is the yellow strip at the top of the screen, and contains all options for working on your guide.
  • To change the color scheme of your guide go to Guide Look & Feel> Change Layout/Colors.
  • The Preview link on the Command Bar enables you to see the guide from a visitor's perspective.
  • When you create a new guide its status is "Unpublished", i.e. invisible to the public. To view how to publish it,  see Preview/Publish page.
