  • Different color on Textbox, based on Section.

    Posted by André Macedo on June 13, 2021 at 3:51 pm

    Does anyone has an idea on how to apply different colors to the same textbox set on a masterpage ? (Ideally without overriding it).
    The text on this textbox holds a section name, and has different colors according to the section you are in.
    I have around 8 sections – so, 8 different colors.

    <div>I have already managed to have these sections named via the “Numbering and Section Options” feature, and then see them reflected in my pages.</div><div>

    So now i just need to have their color changed according to the section.


    I am also attaching 2 imgs of 2 different sections, to better explain.


    Thank You very Much in advance. André

    Hi André,

    You would need to create a master page, and then duplicate that initial master page and apply the color changes.

    This way you can use the same master page but with a different color or even different text for each section.

    Then you just have to apply the specific master page to all the pages of that section.
