Setting Highlighting preferences

Setting Highlighting preferences

Highlighting preferences let you customize the colors Dreamweaver uses to identify template regions, library items, third-party tags, layout elements, and code.

To change a highlighting color:

  • Beside the object you want to change the highlighting color for, click the color box, then use the color picker to select a new color, or enter a hexadecimal value.

To activate or deactivate highlighting for an object:

  • Beside the object you want to activate or deactivate highlighting color for, select or deselect the Show checkbox.
