Note about Mapped boxes and pages

If you want to reuse a box or page that already exists, you have two choices:

1. You can make a copy of the box/page and make any edits or changes that you like.

2. You can choose to have the box/page mapped to the original, which will keep your box up to date with any changes that the original creator makes, but will not allow you to make any changes. 

When you create a new box/page, there is a tab titled "reuse existing box (or page)".  One of the options you can check is making a copy of the box that you can edit- keeping it mapped is the default setting.
