Apply To All Topics

Select this option to apply formatting at the project level:

Master Page

The selected master page overrides the settings of all the individual topics with or without a master page applied to them in the project. The CSS and layout of the master page override the CSS and appearance of all the topics. For example, if the selected master page doesn’t have a header or footer, topics won’t either.


The master pages associated with individual topics become effective. The selected CSS over­rides all the topics and their CSS irrespective of whether they are associated with a master page or not.
