Local Page Layout Overrides Other Pages
I'm having some trouble understanding how to use the Page Layouts; I want to create a single landing page which does not include navigation or any content from other pages. However, whenever I use the Landing Page template (which is not attached to any other page in the site), and I set the Page Setup to Local, all of the changes I make to the navigation, header, footer, etc., continue to propagate throughout the entire rest of the site. What am I doing wrong? I've already now wasted hours having to rebuild areas for the rest of the site, so I'm a little hesitant to make any more changes.
On a side note, this area of PageLines really could use some work, both in terms of documentation and in terms of UI/UX. It's a pretty reasonable assumption for a user to make to create a new template, set it to Local, and expect that those changes would not impact the rest of the site.
Layout lines up on Desktop and Tableet
I am trying to make our home page line up on a desktop view and tablet view. On the my monitor everything is lined up but as soon as I zoom in or transfer to a tablet everything is not lined up. What is some css or html I can add the site so that everything auto scales to the screen size. The link to the home page http://proto.burkeproperties.com/ .
Custom Category Pages
Our organization would like a section on just one of our category pages which would filter posts in that category by tag. It seems that everything I've read--on these forums, pagelines documentation and other wordpress forums--has said it is impossible to customize the layout of a specific category page differently from the others, meaning that all category pages will appear the same (apart from using a plugin like widget logic).
So I'm trying to figure out if I did the "impossible" with DMS2, and want an opinion on whether I should assume this change will hold.
The images I'm linking each show a different category layout from our dev site. The first one is the layout that all of the categories use. This is a snap of the "Blog" category. There is a set DMS template called "Blogtest" assigned to this layout.
The second image is the "News" category page that I seemed to have successfully customized.
How I did this: I unlinked the "News" category page from the "Blogtest" template and I changed the scope from type to local. Then I added/removed some sections and edited the meta bar on the post loop section to clearly distinguish the layout from the other categories.
Is this something that is known to be possible? Is changing the scope from type to local the magic fix?
Our dev site is not accessible to the public due to our firewall, but I could whitelist an IP for a mod. If one of you want to take a closer look, PM me.

Can't create distinct type of page layout
I'm trying to create a type of page layout and I'm not sure how to go about it. Hopefully you could shed some light on this.
I have a website with a Case Studies section. Example of a Case Study page here:
This is almost exactly what I want but the current problems are:
At the bottom the Masonic Gallery shows ALL other pages and posts. I just want it to show other Case Study pages only (i.e., no Blog posts). Should I be setting this Case Study content up as WP Posts instead of WP Pages and then use some sort of category filter in the Masonic Gallery? I tried making a Case Study as a WP Post, but that made my Blog entries change their layouts to look like Case Studies, which I didn't want. If I click on another Case Study page (http://brightldn.com/new/case-studies/case-study-3/), the RevSlider at the top is still from the previous Case Study. How do I make a RevSlider unique to a page and not part of an overall template? Any help would be welcome, I've been prodding this for hours now.
Magazine style (2-column post) in DMS2?
Hi. Just wondering if it is no longer possible to have magazine-style? I don't see it in "Post Layouts" ?
