I have taken the copy of the v4.master [say mycustomv4.master] in SP 2013 publishing site collection using SP Designer 2013 and
applied my own css, images,and controls.Further, uploaded the same in the master page gallery and edit the properties of this custom master and set the content type as
Master Pageand version as
Now I set this custom master as default and custom master page using designer.
But this custom master is not available site master page dropdown,when i went to the look n feel section in settings page. What am doing wrong? Am not comfortable/ don't know "how-to" in doing design manager and new html-master page mechnasim in SP 2013.That's the reason i went with old traditional copy-paste-existing master v4.master approach.
I have published correctly from the masterpage gallery.
Is it not allowed in SP 2013 that, we should not take the copy of the V4.MASTER and deploy and publish and use it as a custom master page?
