Preview In Browser In Adobe Dreamweaver

Computers Add comments

As you work on your web pages in a href=http://www.trainingcompany.com target=_blankAdobe Dreamweaver CS4/a, you constantly need to review them in a web browser. To facilitate this process, Dreamweaver allows you to configure as many browsers as you would like to see use for previewing. You can specify one browser as your primary, or preferred, browser; you can then specify a secondary browser and as many additional browsers as you want.br /
br /
Naturally, the first step is to make sure that the browser software is installed on your computer. Next, to specify your preferred browser, go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences. (This is the Windows location of Dreamweaver Preferences: on a Macintosh, go to the Dreamweaver menu and choose Preferences.) br /
br /
A series of categories is displayed on the left of the Preferences window. Click on the Preview in Browser category. You may already have a browser configured as your primary browser and possibly another as your secondary. If you wish to change this, simply click on the appropriate checkboxes to specify which is which.br /
br /
To add an additional browser, just click on the plus sign (+), locate the browser software and double-click to open it. You can repeat this procedure as many times as you like.br /
br /
To preview a page using one of your configured browsers, click on the preview icon (the globe) located on the Document toolbar which is normally displayed at the top of the document window. From the drop-down menu, choose the browser that youd like to use. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts: to preview using your primary browser press Shift-F12 on Windows or option-F12 on a Macintosh; to preview in the secondary browser press Control-F12 on Windows or Command-F12 on a Macintosh. Alternatively, simply choose the name of any other browser.br /
br /
Once youve looked at the preview, to return to Dreamweaver, simply close the browser window.br /
br /
There may be times when youd like to preview pages without saving the changes youve made to your document. Dreamweaver offers you this possibility but, first, lets examine what normally happens when you preview a file that has been modified.br /
br /
Dreamweaver displays a dialogue box asking us if wed like to save the changes. If we click No, it gives us a preview of the last version that we saved rather than the version that were currently working on and, naturally, if we click Yes, Dreamweaver will save our changes before previewing the file. This can sometimes be inconvenient, since you may not be ready to save your changes.br /
br /
If youd like to be able to preview a file at any time without saving your changes, return to your Browser Preview category of Dreamweavers Preferences and activate the option Preview Using Temporary File. When this option is activated, Dreamweaver will create a temporary file containing the latest version of your document and then shows you a preview of it. When the browser window opens, you will notice that the file name does not correspond to the name of your document it a temporary file name generated by Dreamweaver.br /
