Setting a default new document type

Setting a default new document type

You can define which document type Dreamweaver uses as a default document for a site.

For example, if most pages in your site will be a specific file type (such as Cold Fusion, HTML, or ASP documents), you can set document preferences that automatically create new documents of the specified file type.

To set a default new document type and preferences:

  1. Select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Dreamweaver > Preferences (Macintosh).

    The Preferences dialog box appears.

  2. Click New Document from the category list on the left.
  3. Set or change preferences as necessary.

    For information on options in the dialog box, see Setting options in the New Document Preferences dialog box.

  4. Click OK.

    Dreamweaver saves your preferences.
