Masters are Widgets you can update

It took me a while, but I just figured out what masters are for. But masters are more like widgets than pages or page templates. So, I think your software would be easier to use if you placed masters as a tab in the same panel as widgets and my widgets. Maybe they could be called Master Widgets.

Well, the thing is the masters are in the prototype so that each prototype has its own masters. Widgets are there for any prototype you do.

Oh, here's another good reason to put the masters in the widgets panels: Doing so would enable the Contents panel to be renamed Pages panel and it would always be showing the page that I'm currently editing. Right now, it doesn't always show the page that I'm currently editing and the Content name is misleading since widgets are also a form of content.

Yes, I agree we should rethink the labeling of that panel. Anyway, if we move the masters we should move the templates too.
