This course covers the enhancements that will most affect web designers using the latest version of Adobe Dreamweaver. Author and veteran Dreamweaver user James Williamson showcases the improved FTP capabilities; the Fluid Grids feature, which gives designers a visual way to control page layout for multiple screen sizes while automatically integrating cross-browser consistency through the use of HTML5; and the CSS Transitions panel, which makes it easy to add impressive CSS-driven transitions to any element on the page through a single dialog. James also demonstrates the increased support for jQuery Mobile, CSS, and web fonts in Dreamweaver. This course is ideal for web designers who want to evaluate the software for purchase or simply brush up on all the new features.
If you're a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Exercise files for this title are located in folders that are named based on the movie numbers they represent. Since each exercise is self- contained, you will want to work with these folders individually. Prior to each exercise, simply redefine your local Dreamweaver site using the new Exercise Folder as your root folder. To help you with this process, I'll demonstrate it for you.
The first thing that I've done is copied over my exercise files directly to my Desktop. You can copy them anywhere on your local disk, but the Desktop makes a really easy place to keep track of them and then delete them when you're finished. The next thing I'll do is I'll come over in Dreamweaver and I'll go ahead and define a new Dreamweaver site. I'll just go ahead and call this one, DWCS6 New Features. For the Local Site Folder I'll go ahead and browse out. And if I'm working on the first exercise, I'll just go out to the Desktop, find my Exercise Files folder and browse into first exercise which is 01_01.
Once I'm inside the folder, I'll go and hit the Select button, or if you're on a Mac it'll say Choose. I'll go ahead and Save it, and it'll go ahead and cache up the files and make them available to me in here in Dreamweaver. Once I'm finished with this exercise and I'm ready to move onto the next one, all I have to do to focus on those files is to come right back over here to the Files panel, I'll double-click on the name of the site in order to edit the site. And I'll simply Browse up and go to the next exercise which would be 01_02, select it, click Save.
It'll redefine the local site and it will make those files available to me for the next exercise. This is the way that I'm going to work throughout the title and I recommend that you follow same workflow. It'll help make sure you're focusing on the right files and avoid you from working on files for another exercise, by choosing the wrong folder. Now if you don't have access to the exercise files, feel free to follow along using your own files and experiment with the features that we'll cover in these exercises.
