Hour 2. A Tour of Dreamweaver > Exploring the Dreamweaver Work Area

Exploring the Dreamweaver Work Area

When you first open Dreamweaver in Windows, you are given the opportunity to choose either the Designer workspace or the Coder workspace. The Coder workspace docks all of the Dreamweaver panels on the left of the screen while the Designer workspace docks all of the panels on the right of the screen. The Macintosh version of Dreamweaver automatically gives you the Designer workspace. I suggest that you pick the Designer workspace because all the figures and examples in this book refer to that workspace configuration. If you initially select the Coder workspace and then want to change to the Designer workspace, you can do so by selecting Window, Workspace Layout, Designer.

The Start Page

Prior to opening any files, Dreamweaver displays a box with a green bar across the top, called the Start page (shown in Figure 2.1). The Start page lists common Dreamweaver tasks, such as Open a Recent Item, Create New, and Create from Samples. At the bottom of the Start page are links to the Dreamweaver Quick Tour and the Dreamweaver Tutorial. Clicking the image of the Dreamweaver box takes you to the Macromedia website for up-to-date information on Dreamweaver, including tips and special offers. Whenever you don't have web pages open in Dreamweaver, you will see the Start page displayed.
