Reconnect dwt template

Somewhere in time one of my files became disassociated from one of its templates. Is there a way to reassociate a file to its dwt template so that the uneditable regions of my file will become updated?

Can you be more specific? Are you referring to the html/css properties panel?

The above advice is wrong.

If a page becomes detached from its template, you have a couple of options.

1) Attempt to reapply the template

You can apply a template to a fully formatted page but it may not work.  If the non-editable areas of the template match the code on the page, you will be asked to merge the editable regions with the content and this might work.  More often than not, the detached page differs from the template and you get a page-within-a-page display in Design View

2) Just create a new page, apply the template and copy/paste contents into it.  Then save over the detached page.

This is the simpler and more effective option.

Thanks. This is how I had proceeded, but it's nice for someone to confirm that this is the best that you can do and there is no magic fix somewhere that you're missing.

Yeah, sorry.  No magic fixes.  Maybe CS5 (laughing).
