GoLive's Menus

As with all Adobe products, the GoLive menus are logical and well thought-out to make it as easy as possible for you to find what you're looking for. You will find menus in a number of places in GoLive. The application menus are located along the top of the screen and contain access to nearly all of GoLive's features. Take a second to click each of the application menus and examine the contents of each menu:

  • The GoLive menu is available on the MacOS only and contains Web Settings and Preferences, as well as the About GoLive option. On the Windows operating system, Preferences and Web Settings are found under the Edit menu, and the About GoLive option is under the Help menu.

  • The File menu enables you to open, close, import, and export files as well as set some file-related settings.

  • The Edit menu contains the standard editing features in addition to selections for finding elements; checking spelling and code syntax; and settings for PDFs, colors, and keyboard shortcuts.

  • The Type menu contains HTML text formatting options along with access to some cascading style sheet (CSS) features.

  • The Special menu contains a variety of submenus to help you work with everything from JavaScript to tables to dynamic HTML (DHTML) timelines. You can also set the page properties from this menu and view document statistics such as character count and word count.

  • The Site menu contains options specific to the management and editing of your site using the GoLive site window.

  • The Diagram menu offers options for diagramming a website, setting up a staging server, and creating a table of contents.

  • The Movie menu contains features for editing QuickTime movies.

  • The View menu enables you to specify how things appear on the screen. It's also where you go to show or hide the rulers, grid, and smart guides.

  • The Window menu is where you go to display palettes and toolbars. All open windows and documents are listed at the bottom of this menu, making it easy to see what's open and to switch between the listed items.

  • The Help menu provides, as its main feature, access to GoLive help. There is a lot to know about GoLive, and Adobe's help files are comprehensive and easy to navigate. Before you spend time paging through the documentation, check the help files. This is also the menu where you can turn Tool Tips on or off, control how you want to check for software updates, and transfer the activation code if you need to install GoLive on a new computer.
