Summary

This chapter covered some of the more obviously graphic-designer-friendly tools and techniques for working in Dreamweaver that really maximize the possibilities of Design view. Rulers, grids, and tracing images are great tools for getting more visual feedback from Design view and the Document window. Layout view and the Convert Layers to Table command allow you to quickly, intuitively translate your layout ideas into HTML structures. As you saw from the exercises, both of these latter tools have their limitations—this is true with any design tool that does things automatically for you. As always with web design, the more you know about HTML, and the more you keep one eye on the code as you work, the better off you’ll be. But used wisely, and if they fit your working style, they can be valuable additions to your web development toolbox.
