Unlocking repeatable elements: Editing an individual Speaker, Agenda, or List item (Designer Pro)

As a refresher, a repeatable repeats or duplicates a group of identically styled elements. Styling refers to how the individual elements are visually formatted - think font color and size (more on the basics here).

In the world of Splash, speaker blocks, schedule blocks, and list blocks are the most common block types built around repeatable functionality. 

But what happens when you need to make an edit to an individual element and don't want this change reflected throughout all of your elements? 

Say you've got a keynote speaker in your lineup that deserves extra attention, or a session in your conference schedule that warrants more information than the rest - the possibilities here are endless. But as a Splash designer you've got the power to make stylistic calls and act upon them!

With our most advanced editing tool, Designer Pro, you're able to unlock a repeatable container and edit each of its element individually.

Here's how to unlock a repeatable container:

1. Navigate into a block that has repeatable functionality.

2. Click into the block's Repeatable Container.

2. Un-check "Lock Repeatable Children."

Voila! You'll now see each repeatable element broken out - free for you to edit!

How to re-lock a repeatable container:

Once you're done with your individual edits, it's a great idea to lock up your repeatable container to ensure that individuals don't start making edits that they think might show up across the board. 

1. Simply pop back into your block's Repeatable Container.

2. Click "Lock Repeatable Children."
