You can create a Standard Page Format to define the layout for a Standard Page. When you apply the Paint Layout to a Standard Page, it will use the Standard Page Format instead of the Default Format. The Default Format will only be used for assets that are not Standard Pages.

To add a specific type format, select the asset type in the Add Custom Asset Type field and click Commit. The Bodycopy asset will appear under the Type Formats Folder in the Asset Map and the asset type will be listed in the Custom Asset Types field, as shown in the figure below.

By default the Inherit Types flag will be ticked. This means that the child types of the selected asset type will also use the layout that is defined in this Bodycopy. For example, if you have selected a User asset type, and checked the inherit box, then the Users, Backend Users, System Administrators and the Root User will also use the layout defined in the Bodycopy. If you do not want to use the Bodycopy for the child types, deselect this box and click Commit.

To add additional Bodycopy assets, select the asset type from the Add Custom Asset Type list and click Commit.

For more information on creating and editing type formats, refer to the Type Formats chapter in this manual.
