As a new user, I just made the same assumption that starting with the View page would be the logical page to start with customizing my layout since I assumed I could sync it to the Edit and New pages. I am now finding that I can't.
After reading this thread I just repeated my edits I made on the View page with moving around my 50 fields into 10 sections on the NEW page, but I am still only being offered the option of syncing the New page with the EDIT page. Seems inefficient to have to repeat my design work.
In this thread the user ADMIN suggested that it was reasonable to not have all 3 pages sync. In other aPaas systems I have used it was always the case that the View, Edit and New pages would change together and that never gave me an issue.
Is there a way to keep all 3 in sync?
It's kind of confusing but you need to go to the properties of the view page and 'enable tabs'. After that, you will be able to save any synchronize across all three pages
It may be you need to enable tabs for the new and edit pages first now that I think about it. Either way, that field needs to be set the same before you can sync pages.
That solved it - thanks
