Associating Design Notes with files

Associating Design Notes with files

You can create a Design Notes file for each document or template in your site. You can also create Design Notes for applets, ActiveX controls, images, Flash content, Shockwave objects, and image fields in your documents.

To add Design Notes to a document:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Open the file in the Document window, then select File > Design Notes.
    • In the Files panel, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) the file, then select Design Notes.

    The Design Notes dialog box appears.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  2. Complete the dialog box.

    For more information, see Setting the Design Notes dialog box options.

  3. Click OK to save the notes.

    Dreamweaver saves your notes to a folder called _notes, in the same location as the current file. The filename is the document’s filename, plus the extension .mno.

    For example, if the filename is index.html, the associated Design Notes file is named index.html.mno.
