Page Name: You can change the name of the html page by Changing the default name. Page names should be short and descriptive. Fusion will automatically replace any space or special character (!#$*%) with an underscore _
Page Title: The page title is what is displayed in the top bar of a web browser. It is also used by search engines when displaying a synopsis of the page. Page titles should be no more than 255 characters and be descriptive of what the page is about.
MasterBorder: You can apply any MasterBorder to the selected page from the drop down box.
By clicking on the Custom Names button you can give the Navigation Button and Banner a different name from the page name.

Working with several pages:
By holding the Control Key and clicking on page icons you can select several pages of your site project to work with. You can then change the properties on all of the pages at the same time.
Property: This option will allow you to select a property so that you can change it on several pages at once.
Example: Select MasterBorder as the property, then in the Value drop down select another MasterBorder from the drop down and press set on all. All selected pages will have their MasterBorder changed.
You can set the file extension on a group of pages in the same way.
This can be done for MasterBorders, Page Names, Page Titles, Navigation Buttons, Banners, or File Extensions
You can work with multiple pages from within all of the property palette's tabs I.E. you can mark several pages done or Don't Publish or change their display colors or protect several pages at once.
Page Status: You can mark a page as Done and a small green check icon will display in the top bar for that page
Don't Publish: When you mark a page Don't publish all reference to that page is removed from the site project. The HTML is not generated, any links to that page are removed and a red X icon appears in the top bar for that page
