Choosing the workspace layout (Windows only)
In Windows, you can choose between the Designer and Coder workspace layouts. The first time you start Dreamweaver, a dialog box lets you choose a workspace layout. You can switch to a different workspace at any time.
To choose a workspace layout the first time you start Dreamweaver:
- Select one of the following layouts:
Designer is an integrated workspace using MDI (Multiple Document Interface), in which all Document windows and panels are integrated into one larger application window, with the panel groups docked on the right.
Coder is the same integrated workspace, but with the panel groups docked on the left, in a layout similar to that used by Macromedia HomeSite and Macromedia ColdFusion Studio, and with the Document window showing Code view by default.
You can dock panel groups on either side of the workspace in either layout.
- Click OK.
To switch to a different workspace after youve chosen one:
- Select Window > Workspace Layout, and select the workspace layout you prefer.
In addition to selecting Coder and Designer, you can select Dual Screen Right or Dual Screen Left. If you have a secondary monitor to the right of your primary monitor, Dual Screen Right puts all panels on the right monitor, and keeps the Document window on the primary monitor. If you have a secondary monitor to the left of your primary monitor, Dual Screen Left puts all panels on the left monitor, and keeps the Document window on the primary monitor.
