  2. That’s a great tool but I have this problem and I hope somebody can help me with this.
    I know pretty much my ways around layer comps but am building a site that the background changes, I meant the height varies from page to page like blog type. I have a homepage of 1020px height but the next page it grew up to 4060px, that will changes the parameters that I set for the homepage to the next page size. I have tried a lot of things but without an answer. Can you please tell me what Am doing wrong
