RH2022 - Front Matter Layout Selection Missing from Template Options

Hello,

I am wondering if I am missing something here.  I am testing out RH2022 for mac.  I converted a copy of a project I have from RH2020. 

 

In my print TOCs, I have a legal warning located under my front matter.  In RH2020, I could select a master page for front matter content which applied my master page to the legal warning with no issues. 

 

With 2022, I do not see that option for front matter content in the new Template option under the Output tab.  Under Templates - <my template> - Settings, I see the new location to specifiy layouts for different sections of the doc - but no front matter entry.  Even with my main layout/master page selected as the default, any topics in front matter, other than the cover and toc, print to PDF without a layout.  I have tried setting the layout/masterpage at the topic level itself with no success.  I also tried creating a new toc in RH2022 as well as a new project (to rule out some weird migration issue), but I get the same results.  

 

Am I missing a setting here or is that just not allowed with RH2022?

I *think* that's all done in Templates now. Have a look at Peter's Robohelp Tour for more information.

Oh right, I see. You need to open the topic and type the name of the Page Layout in the topic Content Properties. It doesn't show a dropdown list or autocomplete which is an odd choice to say the least. I'd also make sure I got the capitalisation exactly right, just in case...
