Lesson 1. Learning the Basics > Working with Panels

Working with Panels

Many of Dreamweaver's panels can be docked—combined in tabbed windows. Docking maximizes your screen area while giving you quick access to the panels you need.

1.
Click the Reference panel to make it active. If it is not visible, choose Window > Reference.

The Reference panel is a new resource in Dreamweaver 4 that gives you quick access to information about specific tags, objects, or styles while you are working in code view. You will use the Reference panel later in this lesson while you edit HTML in code view.

2.
Drag the Assets tab (located just to the right of the Reference tab) out of the window.

The Assets panel is now a separate window. You can undock any panel by dragging its tab out of a set of docked panels.

3.
Drag the Assets panel toward the Reference panel.

Notice that the Assets panel snaps to the Reference panel. The document window and panels align to one another or to the sides of your screen. This arrangement helps you better manage your workspace.

4.
Drag the Assets panel over the Reference panel. When the border of the Reference panel highlights, drop the Assets panel.

You have now rejoined the two panels into a docked set. You can separate or combine most of Dreamweaver's panels to create a custom workspace that fits your needs and working style.
