Dreamweaver Tips

Dreamweaver allows you to create web pages two ways – either by using the “GUI” interface or by hand coding with HTML, CSS, and JAVA script – depending on your skill and comfort level.

Split view allows you to simultaneously display both the both Code and Design views. This is very helpful if you want to change the code, but still see what it is going to look like to the user.

Make use of the toolbars available as they will include functions that make coding html easier as it is done automatically. Creating tables, hyperlinks, inserting images and more can all be done with the touch of a button on the toolbars. Learn the buttons and fields located in these toolbars and how they are used as they will save you a lot of time.

To make a single break (or <br>), you need to hold the shift key and press enter. To make a paragraph break (or <p>), you can just press enter only.

A helpful tool in Dreamweaver is that, before uploading your new site, you can check to make sure there are no bad links. Simply, go to the site map of your project and right click any file. Then, choose the "check links" option which can check the links in just the selected file or the entire project.

If you want to resize an image to make it smaller, it is better to do so using an image editing program like Photoshop rather than using the image attributes section on your tool bar. This is because if you make a large image smaller just using Dreamweaver all you are changing is how the image appears on the page and not the actual size. So, the large image would take a longer time to load as the file size is still the same no matter what the width and height are set as on the page. If you change the image itself to make it smaller, the file size of the image would be smaller and thus it would load faster.

Dreamweaver allows you to preview what the site is going to look like online before you make it live. All you need to do it hit the F12 button on your keyboard and it will open in a browser window.

While all of Dreamweaver’s palettes are very helpful and useful, they can get in the way sometimes. To temporarily get them out of your way so that you can see what they are looking at just hit the F4 button on your keyboard. To make them re-appear, just hit F4 again and they will return.

In the top menu under the Modify category, there is an option to edit your page properties. In this option, you can add a background image for the page or select a background color, choose the colors for text and links, and set the margins for the page.
