    Default Priority of MasterBorder areas

    Hey, all.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to alter the priority or hierarchy of the master border areas.

    It would appear that the standard hierarchy is:
    1. TOP
    2. LEFT/RIGHT
    3. BOTTOM


    By that, I mean, if I create a left MasterBorder area, the top MB area can span that, but the bottom MB area cannot.

    Hmm... maybe a picture helps. The default MB layout defaults to this:
    Click image for larger version.

    But there are times when I'd like to have it like this:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	MBalt..gif

ID:	883

    Is this possible? Is there a switch, CSS rule, format option to do this?

    Not sure I understand the question so this might be off the mark, Ray:

    In my experience with Nof 7.1, 9 and 11, the top and bottom Master Border
    areas go all the way across the screen at the top and bottom both. In fact,
    though I haven't tried it, I didn't know you could sandwch the bottom MB
    within the same rows the left border occupies. IME, the vertcal length of
    the MB on the left, for instance, will be the same length as the body
    element for content. In other words, it ends at the same point as the body
    portion of the page ends at.

    ====== MB =======
    | |
    |<----Left MB |
    | |
    | |
    ===== MB ========
    Maybe it has something to do with setting up a right-hand MB? Remove it
    and then try to use the Ruler Handles to move the Bottom MB downward where
    you can use the whole width of your established screen width on the left and
    the right.

    Obviously I'm no guru, but that should help if I interpreted your question
    correctly.

    HTH,

    Thanks, 'T'

    I confused myself.

    It's actually the reverse of what I stated. The left/right side MB areas are stopped at the footer. I came up with a crazy work-around for one site, but it wasn't fun.

    I'm guessing by the lack of responses this is just "the way it is" and can't be changed. I recall when using frames, you could change the priority by changing the order in which you activated the frames. But we all know the story of frames and how they went to the dark side and wore that silly mask and we no longer invite them to Thanksgiving...
