Chapter 5. Getting Started With Dreamweaver > The Properties inspector (panel)

The Properties inspector (panel)

The Properties inspector is a context‐sensitive panel, which means that its functionality changes depending on what you select in the Document window. If you select a table, the options for editing a table are displayed. When text is selected, the text formatting options are shown. You can edit elements using the Properties inspector or set alignments, change colors, join table cells, or apply CSS styles. Many other options are also available depending on what type of element you select.

Making links with the Properties inspector

One of the interesting tools in the Properties inspector is the Point to File tool (shown in Figure 5-12 ), which looks like a clock to the right of the Link text box. To use the tool, click and drag the clock to the file in the Files panel to make a link. A line drags out from the box to the file you point to. This is a quick and easy way to make a link. It saves time when linking to files within your site.
