-===== Chapter ​7.9: One Big Page and Change Banks Together =====+===== Chapter ​12: iPad and Two-Up Page Design ===== 
 + 
 +==== Two-Up Page Design ==== 
 +By default, new layouts use a split-page design:  
 + 
 +[{{ :​manual:​chapter1:​ipad_screen.png?​direct&​650 |iPad Screen Layout}}]  
 + 
 +You may choose one page page for the left side, and a different page (or even the same page) for the right side.  
 +As noted, you may switch pages with the page tabs (8). 
 + 
 +In addition, you may select a different bank for the each side using the bank selectors (9).  
 +To see all topics related to page banks, [[manual:chapter-working-with-layouts-banks-and-pages|see here]]. 
 + 
 +<WRAP callout>​ 
 +Users' opinions are split of their love for the two-up page design. \\ \\ 
 + 
 +About half of the MIDI Designer Master Layout creators (like popup, fdesnoyers, planshifter,​ landschall and EZB, to name just a few)  
 +rely on it, because they can mix and match pieces of their layout. \\ \\ 
 + 
 +The other half use //One Big Page//.  
 +</​WRAP>​ 
 + 
 +==== One Big Page ==== 
 +//Config -> Options -> One Big Page (toggle)// \\ 
 +One Big Page allows you to experience you layout as a set of unified pages spanning the width of your iPad screen. 
 +Choose a different Page Bank for the left and right sides, and then turn on One Big Page. 
 + 
 +You must display a different bank on the right and left sides. Otherwise, you'll be seeing the same page on the right and left side! 
 + 
 +[{{ http://​mididesigner.com/​automatic-images/​OneBigPagePrompt.png?​700 | One Big Page Confirmation}}] 
 + 
 +Dynamic controls may span the entire width of your layout. To achieve this: 
 +  - Put the control on the left side 
 +  - Extend it to the right side by using the sizing handles 
 + 
 +If you adjust page background texture and color on either side, that color will affect the page on both sides of the layout. :!: LED color changes only affect the left or right page that is selected. 
 + 
 +<WRAP callout tip> 
 +To move controls from page to page, you might have to shut One Big Page off temporarily. 
 +</​WRAP>​ 
 + 
 + 
 + 
 +==== Change Banks Together ==== 
 +//Config -> Options -> Change Banks Together// ​ \\ 
 +This feature is also known as //One Big Bank//. 
 + 
 +<WRAP callout info> 
 +This feature requires One Big Page being set to ON 
 +</​WRAP>​ 
 + 
 +//Change Banks Together// allows you to move through banks on the right and left side of your rig at the same time. 
 +When you turn the feature on, MD will explain how the banks will change: 
 + 
 +[{{ http://​mididesigner.com/​automatic-images/​ChangeBanksTogetherConfirm.png?​650 | Change Banks Together Confirmation}}] 
 + 
 +//Banks Change Together// links the following banks together, \\ left and right: 1-5, 2-6, 3-7, 4-8. 
 + 
 +:!: You can only change the number of banks available on the left side using Change Banks Together. 
 + 
 +=== Move Banks === 
 +//Config -> Actions -> Move Banks 2-4-6 to 5-6-7// 
 +Users who have been using //One Big Page// for some time and decide to use //Change Banks Together// are oftentimes surprised to find that they'​ve used these banks for //One Big Page//: 
 + 
 +^ Left Side ^ Right Side ^ 
 +| 1 | 2 | 
 +| 3 | 4 | 
 +| 5 | 6 | 
 + 
 +while //Change Banks Together// requires these banks: 
 + 
 +^ Left Side ^ Right Side ^ 
 +| 1 | 5 | 
 +| 2 | 6 | 
 +| 3 | 7 | 
 + 
 +You can automatically switch your layout to this new configuration via //Move Banks 2-4-6 to 5-6-7//. You will be 
 +given this prompt:
