Known limitations

Change name of page, images are lost

There is a known issue that when a page gets a change of names, the images go missing. Currently there is no good way for us to solve this, we do however have a suggested workaround. 

Workaround to avoid issue

Add your images to the space home. Get the URL for the images, then use this to get the images into the modules of the Content Layout macro. 

Copy page with Content Layout Macro

The content of the Content Layout Macro is stored against the original page and the layout itself will not be duplicated. 

Workaround to avoid issue

To move a Content Layout Macro to another page we recommend you to first export the layout from the layout mode and import the layout into a new Content Layout Macro located on another page.
