Playing with Panels

It’s a fact of life that there are lots of panels out there. They’re all handy at one time or another, but boy they sure get in the way when you’re not using them, and it’s always hard to find just the one you want when you want it. Many Dreamweaver tasks involve accessing panels for some reason. Both the Dreamweaver integrated workspace (Windows) and the semi-integrated workspace (Mac) use a system of docking, grouping, expanding, and contracting panels to help you streamline your daily panel use.

Panels and Panel Groups

Any panel can be opened or expanded by choosing it from the Window menu, which also lists the shortcut keys for opening and closing them. Most of the Dreamweaver panels live in panel groups, with each panel available under a tab in the group window. (Well, technically, all of the panels live in groups, but some panels, such as the CSS Styles panel, live in groups of one.) The groups are logical, to help you intuitively figure out which panel goes where. The panel/group title bar includes an options menu for performing panel-related tasks. Figure 2.6 shows a typical panel group with its features highlighted.
