Hour 1. Understanding the Dreamweaver In... > Exploring the Dreamweaver Work Area

Exploring the Dreamweaver Work Area

When you first open up Dreamweaver in Windows, you are given the opportunity to choose either the Dreamweaver MX workspace or the Dreamweaver 4 workspace. Dreamweaver 4 is the prior version of Dreamweaver. This feature is designed to enable those who are already comfortable with the Dreamweaver 4 interface to continue to use it. I encourage all users to try the Dreamweaver MX interface. All of the figures and examples in this book refer to the Dreamweaver MX workspace configuration.

If you selected a workspace but would now like to change to the other workspace, you can do so in Dreamweaver preferences. Select the Preferences command from the Edit menu. Select the General category, shown in Figure 1.1, and click on the Change Workspace button. You'll see the same dialog box you saw when you first entered Dreamweaver, and you'll be able to change your workspace configuration. The checkbox titled HomeSite/Coder-Style loads the mirror image of the default Dreamweaver MX workspace with the panels on the left instead of the right. Macintosh users do not have the option to select or change the workspace; Dreamweaver MX will automatically be configured in the floating-panel interface mode.
