Selecting table elements
You can select an entire table, row, or column at once. You can also select one or more individual cells.
When you move your pointer over a table, row, column, or cell, Dreamweaver highlights all the cells in that selection so that you know exactly which cells will be selected if you click the selection. This is useful when you have tables without borders, cells that span multiple columns or rows, or nested tables. You can change the highlight color in preferences.
If you position the pointer over a tables border, then hold the Control key (Windows) or Command key (Macintosh), the entire structure of the table--that is, all cells in the table--is highlighted. This is useful when you have nested tables and want to see the structure of one of the tables.
To change the highlight color for selecting table elements:
- Select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Dreamweaver > Preferences (Macintosh).
The Preferences dialog box appears.
- Select Highlighting from the category list on the left.
- Make either of the following changes:
- Click OK.
