Resizing the Document window

Resizing the Document window

The status bar displays the Document window’s current dimensions (in pixels). To design a page that looks its best at a specific size, you can adjust the Document window to any of the predetermined sizes, edit those predetermined sizes, or create new sizes.

To resize the Document window to a predetermined size:

  • Select one of the sizes from the Window Size pop-up menu at the bottom of the Document window.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

The window size shown reflects the inside dimensions of the browser window, without borders; the monitor size is listed in parentheses. For example, you would use the size "536 x 196 (640 x 480, Default)" if your visitors are likely to be using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator in their default configurations on a 640 x 480 monitor.

To change the values listed in the Window Size pop-up menu:

  1. Select Edit Sizes from the Window Size pop-up menu.
  2. Click any of the width or height values in the Window Sizes list, then type a new value.

    To make the Document window adjust only to a specific width (leaving the height unchanged), select a height value and delete it.

  3. Click the Description text box to enter descriptive text about a specific size.
  4. Click OK to save the change and return to the Document window.

To add a new size to the Window Size pop-up menu:

  1. Select Edit Sizes from the Window Size pop-up menu.
  2. Click the blank space below the last value in the Width column.
  3. Enter values for Width and Height.

    To set the Width or Height only, simply leave one field empty.

  4. Click the Description field to enter descriptive text about the size you added.
  5. Click OK to save the change and return to the Document window.

    For example, you might type SVGA or average PC next to the entry for an 800 x 600 pixel monitor, and 17-in. Mac next to the entry for an 832 x 624 pixel monitor. Most monitors can be adjusted to a variety of pixel dimensions.
