Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area > Previewing in Adobe GoLive

Previewing in Adobe GoLive

Now that you've finished modifying the home page of the First Strike Matches Web site, you'll preview the page in Adobe GoLive. To do so, you first need to make sure that the Preview Mode is activated in the Modules Preferences.

1.
Choose Edit > Preferences, click Modules in the left pane of the Preferences dialog box, select Preview Mode, and click OK.



2.
In the document window, click the Layout Preview tab () to view the document in Preview.

The Preview displays an approximation of what your page looks like when it's finally published on the Web. You can test links, preview animated GIFs, and preview QuickTime movies in the Preview.

If you are using Adobe GoLive for Mac OS, you can use the View Controller in conjunction with the Preview to see an approximation of what your page looks like in a variety of browsers.

3.
In Mac OS, click View Controller to bring the View Controller to the front of its group, or choose Window > View Controller to display the View Controller. In the View Controller, choose "Explorer 5 (Windows)" from the Root CSS menu to see how your page appears in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 on a Windows platform. Try the different menu options and observe how your page changes in the preview. Notice that the text increases in size whenever you switch to a Windows-based browser.
