Masters

Masters are groups of components which can be easily reused and placed into existing wireframes. They can be managed through the Library tab at the top of your site map and placed in your wireframes using drag and drop. Changes to the original master are duplicated to copies added to wireframes. Masters are easily moveable which allows for them to be placed in different locations on multiple pages.

Templates

Like Masters, templates are also groups of components and changes made to them are reflected on all wireframes that the template is assigned to. While a wireframe can only have a single template attached to it, templates can be linked together to create cascades. Templates are typically used for content that is on a fixed position on they pages they are applied to such as a header.
