About customizing Dreamweaver in multiuser systems
You can customize Dreamweaver to suit your needs even in a multiuser operating system such as Windows XP or Mac OS X.
Dreamweaver prevents any users customized configuration from affecting any other users customized configuration. To accomplish this goal, the first time you run Dreamweaver in one of the multiuser operating systems that it recognizes, the application creates copies of a variety of configuration files for you. These user configuration files are stored in a folder belonging to you.
For example, in Windows XP theyre stored in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8\Configuration (which may be inside a hidden folder).
In Mac OS X theyre stored inside your Home folder; specifically, in Users/username/Library/Application Support/Macromedia/Dreamweaver 8/Configuration.
If you reinstall or upgrade Dreamweaver, Dreamweaver automatically makes backup copies of existing user configuration files, so that if youve customized those files by hand, you still have access to the changes you made.
