I'm new to Sharepoint so maybe I'm missing something simple. I created an additional masterpage by copying "seattle" and modifying some things in the html file. The .master file was created automatically. Then, I created a new "composed look" that included my new masterpage, and applied it.

However, when I go to site settings and then to masterpage settings (the place where I can pick if a site should inherit a masterpage or have its own), the only masterpages available are still just the two default ones, "oslo" and "seattle". What should I do to make my custom masterpage appear there? And another problem, maybe it's related, is that when I create a subsite, the subsite doesn't get my custom masterpage, only "oslo" and "seattle". When I visit the subsite's master page list in Sharepoint Designer, it only contains "minimal.master", "oslo.master", "seattle.master", and "v4.master", but my own custom masterpage wasn't copied to the subsite. :( The subsite also doesn't have my own custom "composed look", only the default ones.

    Did you publish your new master page (created the major version)? Btw, you only need to publish .html file... the .master file will be automatically published. – Damjan Tomic Jun 25 '19 at 11:07

    I published it now and it's working, thank you very much! There was no indication anywhere that it was unpublished. – Curious741 Jun 25 '19 at 11:17
