About using saved commands versus playing back steps

Dreamweaver enables you to record a temporary command for short-term use, or you can play back steps from the History panel.

When you record a temporary command:

  • The steps are recorded as you perform them, so you don’t have to select them in the History panel before playing them back.
  • During recording, Dreamweaver prevents you from performing nonrecordable mouse movements (such as clicking to select something in a window, or dragging a page element to a new location).
  • If you switch to another document while recording, Dreamweaver doesn’t record the changes you make in the other document. To determine whether you’re recording or not at any given moment, look at the mouse pointer.
