Read this article to learn how to share and synchronize text in Adobe Muse.

About Synchronized Text

Synchronized Text allows you to reuse text in multiple places on a page, on different pages, and across desktop, tablet, and smartphone layouts. Text such as product names, prices, titles, headers, footers and more, typically appear across multiple pages and versions (desktop, tablet, and mobile) of a site.

With Synchronized Text, you can type common text once and maintain a consistent copy on multiple instances. If you want to edit the text, changing it once updates all instances of the text across your site. When updating text across all instances, Adobe Muse does not alter any style attributes associated with an instance.

Content Tags

A Content Tag represents synchronized text.

  • When you apply a tag to a text frame, that text frame displays the synchronized text.
  • When you edit a text frame that is already tagged, all instances of the tagged text frame are updated to display changed content. Take note that Adobe Muse leaves styles and other visual attributes unchanged when updating text.

Collection

A collection is a group of tags. When working with Synhronized text, you can choose to create multiple tags and organize them using a collection.
