For each page of a magazine, the content is the same: 1-2 photos, article content, title, subtitle, and author name. There are also four different layouts: three column full, three column with header, two column, and section header.
Now lets say I have an article (with all of the content information mentioned) and I realize that it won't fit into the "three column full" layout. How can I, in the fewest clicks possible, switch to a two column layout.
In my dream world I would be able to: label different text boxes with different names (say "author" and "article content") and then be able to switch layouts so that all of the content is transferred to the correct text box in the new layout.
What's the best way to do this? If it's completely impossible, what are some alternatives?
