19.1. Customizing Menus

Dreamweaver menus are defined in an XML-like syntax and stored in the Dreamweaver4/Configuration/Menus/menus.xml file. To customize the menus, exit Dreamweaver and modify the menus.xml file in a text editor, such as WordPad (Windows) or BBEdit (Macintosh).

Do not edit the menus.xml file in an XML-savvy editor, as it is not a true XML file. It contains ampersands (&) that generate errors when the XML is parsed. Also, don't edit menus.xml in Dreamweaver. Don't change the existing id attributes within the file. If you make a mistake, restore menus.xml from the backup copy, menus.bak, provided by Macromedia in the same folder.
