Editing pages with the SharePoint Designer 2010

So always nice to update a few minor things on a pagelayout using SharePoint Designer,

especially if it has to be done quick, however this week I spend the first hour cursing

why SPD wouldn’t allow me to edit my pagelayout. Seems to be that opening it, checking

it out isn’t enough. You have to press the advanced button…

Opening a pagelayout took a few minutes to get, due to the fact that in SPD2010 you

have to click the ‘edit file’ after opening the file. Once you are in editing mode

all the html in code view is a bit yellow though, and not editable. To get it editable

you have to click the Advanced mode button, after doing so you will be able to edit

your page as like. However once you clicked it, it will grey out..
