Mac or Windows?

The differences between the Mac and Windows versions of Dreamweaver are so few as to be negligible. In the rare cases where there is a difference, I point it out and show a screen shot if necessary. The most important difference, as far as this book is concerned, lies in PhoneGap integration. Both Windows and Mac support Android, but the software necessary to build apps for iOS runs only on a Mac. The other difference, as always, lies in keyboard shortcuts. I provide both versions, Windows first, followed by Mac.

Using a multibutton mouse is now so common among Mac users that I refer only to right-click instead of giving Control-click as the alternative. On most Macs, the F keys now control hardware features, such as sound level and brightness. When I refer to F keys, you need to hold down the Fn key at the same time. Alternatively, open Keyboard in System Preferences and select the “Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function key” check box.
