Viewing assets in the Assets panel

Viewing assets in the Assets panel

You can view and manage assets in the current site using the Assets panel. The Assets panel displays assets for the site associated with the active document in the Document window.

The Assets panel provides two views:

The Site list shows all of the assets in your site, including colors and URLs that are used in any document in your site.

The Favorites list shows only the assets you’ve explicitly chosen.

In both lists, assets are divided into categories (along the left side of the Assets panel). The Site list and the Favorites list are both available for all categories of assets except templates and library items.

By default, assets in a given category are listed in alphabetical order by name. You can instead list the assets by any of several other criteria or change the size of the columns. You can also preview assets in a category, and change the size of the preview area.

To open the Assets panel:

  • Select Window > Assets.

    The Assets panel appears. By default, the Images category is selected.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

To view the Site list:

  • In the Assets panel (Window > Assets), select the Site option at the top of the panel.

To view the Favorites list:

  • In the Assets panel (Window > Assets), select the Favorites option at the top of the panel.

    The Favorites list is empty until you explicitly add assets to it.

To display assets in a particular category:

  • Click the appropriate icon on the left side of the Assets panel (Window > Assets).

To list assets in a different order:

  • Click one of the column headings.

    For example, to sort the list of images by type (so that all the GIF images are together, all the JPEG images are together, and so on), click the Type column heading.

To change the width of a column:

  • Drag the line that separates two column headings.

To preview an asset:

  • Select the asset in the Assets panel.

    The preview area at the top of the panel shows a visual preview of the asset.

    For example, when you select a movie asset, the preview area shows an icon. To view the movie, click the Play button (the green triangle) in the upper-right corner of the preview area.

To change the size of the preview area:

  • Drag the splitter bar (between the preview area and the list of assets) up or down.
