Chapter 1. Getting Started > The Document Window

The Document Window

The Document window (shown in detail on the next page in Figure 1.17) is the main center of activity in Dreamweaver.

  • At the top: The title bar displays the filename and the title of the current Web page. All of Dreamweaver's commands are available from the Document window menu bar. The new toolbar offers shortcut menus and different page views. (See next page.)

  • In the middle: The body of the HTML document is displayed in the main viewing area of the Document window. Because Dreamweaver is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) HTML tool, the Document window approximates what you'll see in a Web browser window.

  • At the bottom: The status bar indicates three things about the current document:

    • The tag selector displays all the HTML tags surrounding your current selection.

    • The window size indicator displays the current size of the Document window so you can flip between common window sizes. The numbers will change if you resize the document window; you can select a preset window size by clicking the down arrow to display a pop-up menu (Figure 1.14).

      Figure 1.14. Click the arrow on the window size indicator to select a common, preset window size.

    • The download stats area displays the total size, in K (kilobytes), of the current page, and the amount of time it would take to download over a 28.8 Kbps modem.
