page template bug

Melissa Lind 7 years ago in By Screen / Design updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 7 years ago 8

When I use the page template, all of the layers are duplicated every time I use it. For example, the fourth time I used it, I had four duplicates of every layer. The duplicate layers come in as white boxes.


Is there any way to erase multiple layers at the same time?

You can use the multiple selection tool to erase elements.  We could not recreate the issue you are reporting.  You should only load a page template once, if you need to upload it again we recommend deleting your elements first that are in the page template, and then loading the page template.  Otherwise it will duplicate the elements which is not the result you are looking for.

The extra layers that it creates are white blocks so I can't always see them except in the layers panel.


What I was doing was reusing a drawing template for three different pages. It was only applied once. The drawing elements are the same but the elements in the page change. I applied the template and then uploaded the unique photoshop file.

Is it possible for the template to be applied without changing the layer names to copies of the original. What may have happened is that I was expecting the page to be updated with the psd file using the same layer names, but because the layer names were different it keeps creating duplicates of the same elements.





Now that I'm thinking about it, I get why it has to be a copy, because you can't have more than one file of that same name in the book. I guess I just can't use the template like I was thinking I could.





ok...still thinking. I use the same drawing template and layer names for different pages. Can different pages in the same book have the same layer names? Or does interact change them?

Yes you can use the same layer names for different pages.

In that case, it would be SUPER cool if the program didn't tag on Copy to every element name because I can name something attach a behavior and action, and then import a new element with the same name and keep the actions and behaviors intact.


And it just looks cleaner in my layers box:)


Thanks!

So you are saying that if on page 1 you have Element1 with some behavior, and then when you will import on page2 the psd file with the Element1 it will tag it as a copy?

When I import a template page it takes all the original layers and adds "copy" onto the layer name.

Ok I manage to see this bug. So when you apply a template it will add the Copy tag next to the elements from the template. This is definetly a bug and we are working to fix it.
