Chapter 9. Using Adobe GoLive CS2 > Using the Objects Palette and Toolbar

Using the Objects Palette and Toolbar

Like other applications in the Creative Suite, GoLive has an impressive array of palettes and tools accessible from the Window menu. You can, of course, configure the palettes however you'd like, but for now let's explore the default configuration. Choose Window, Workspace, Default Workspace to return the palettes to their default locations. For more information on using palettes, workspaces, and keyboard shortcuts, refer to Chapter 4, “The Key That Makes It All Work: Integration.”

The Objects Palette

On the left side of the screen is what appears to be a toolbox similar to that found in Photoshop, ImageReady, Illustrator, and InDesign. In this case, looks are deceiving because in GoLive, it's really two palettes in one. The top portion, called the toolbox, contains some basic tools. The bottom portion is the Objects palette, and it functions differently than the toolbox. The Objects palette has a pop-up button at the top (see Figure 9.5). Clicking a button opens a set of objects in the lower portion of the palette. Hover your mouse over a button, and a ToolTip with the name of that set of objects pops up. You can also select a set of objects by clicking the Palette Options button at the lower-right corner of the Objects palette and choosing the name of the set from the list. To limit the available objects shown to only those that conform to a specific Document Type Definition (DTD), choose Configure from the Palette Options and select the DTD of your choice.
