In Slice And Dice, your LINKS must be spelled out completely, and will be either:
a. A FULL URL like:
b. A page like:
../index.html // go up a folder to the file
Photos/index.html // go down into a folder to an html file
Now, your question might really be somthing like "How do I name pages in Create so that I know what their URL is in Slice And Dice" - and here is how:
Either Info -> Web, with nothing selected, fill in the top field "Page Title:" - you can use plain English or French, like "Le Doublon" - that would mean that the actual page will be named "Le_Doublon.html" as all spaces and punctuation are replaced by "_" (underscores) and you need to add the .html at the end. So "CONTACT" is CONTACT.html, "My Great Page" is "My_Great_Page.html" etc....
2. You are correct in that Create doesn't "peak into the Slice And Dice file to try and figure out the WEB location assigned in Slice And Dice. In fact, you are correct that's its confusing that the inspector lets you assign URLs but they do not "take" - I'll think about how it would be better in that case.
3. You are tenacious and that's all that counts in the world of computers! You definitely are on the right track, and I'd like to help you over the initial hurdles!
I REALLY need to write a "using SliceAndDiced RollOvers in Create" Tutorial!
