Setting library highlighting preferences

You can customize the highlight color for library items and show or hide highlighting of library items by setting Highlighting preferences.

To change the highlight color for library items:

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

    The Preferences dialog box appears.

  2. Select the Highlighting category from the list on the left.
  3. Click the Library Items color box, then select a highlight color using the color picker (or enter the hexadecimal value for the highlight color in the text box).

    For information about using the color picker, see Working with colors.

  4. Select Show to display the highlighted library color in the Document window.
  5. Click OK.

To view highlight colors in the Document window:

  • Select View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements.

    Highlight colors appear in the document window only when View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements is enabled and the appropriate options are enabled in Highlighting preferences.
