The Insert bar

The Insert bar (shown in Figure 5-14 ) is a narrow toolbar that appears near the top of the screen in the default workspace layout. This toolbar has several categories of tools for elements that you might want to quickly and easily add to a page. Some items in the default set include the following:

  • Common: These elements are the basics: link, e‐mail link, anchor points (those invisible links that make it so people can jump from place to place on your page), table, image, date (which has several options for formatting), and comment (for adding a code comment).

  • Forms: Inserts the elements you need to build Web forms. (See Book VI for details about how to make a form.) The elements found under this toolbar are radio buttons, check boxes, and text boxes. Each of these has their own special attributes that you can set via the Properties inspector after you've added them to the page.

  • Text: This is another place that has options for formatting text. Special types of formatting are available here, such as headings and definition lists.

  • Application: Inserts elements you need while building dynamic pages. (See Book VI for more details.)

All the elements available on the Insert bar are available via the Insert menu. You can also add more categories by going to the Dreamweaver Developer Center at www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver and finding extensions.
