Pages are how you navigate within a Perspective project. Each page represents a collection of views that are displayed in a single space. Just like a single tab of a web browser, this represents a single page (at a time). Before you begin to configure a page, it's important to understand the page layout. It has several specific regions and each behave differently: Top Dock, Bottom Dock, Left Dock, Right Dock, and a Primary View. The type of content you create and the design strategy you use for your views will determine where you place them on the page layout. For example, you may want a staff schedule to be available on every page, but not displayed all the time on the page. What you could do is configure the view on a docked window, thus making it available on demand when someone wants to see it by clicking on a tab in a sesson to view it, and clicking the tab again to hide it. Pages in Perspective describes in detail about page layout, page configuration, configuring docked views, and more.
Open the Page Configuration window by clicking on the Settings icon in the lower left corner. This is where you'll configure your pages in Perspective.
Initially, Shared Settings allow you to apply configuration changes to all pages (such as adding an omnipresent docked view), as well as specify the Corner Priority.
To the right of the Page Configuration column, the following buttons are present:
- Add - Creates a new Page Configuration.
- Trash - Removes the selected Page Configuration.
Recently Modified Views
You'll also notice in the Page Configuration image below, there is a Recent Modified Views list. These are your most recent modified views along with a timestamp denoting when the last edit to the view was made and who made the modifications. If the project does not contain any views, the listing will be empty.
