A page is one of the palette-like subwindows shown on the left side of the World Editor. They are organized into five groups under the tabs Object, Material, Earth, Instance, and Editor. The pages can be rearranged by dragging them upward and downward by their title bars, and they can be collapsed or expanded by clicking on the small box with a plus or minus symbol in it.
