In this course, author James Fritz shows how to create HTML-based websites with Muse—a toolset familiar to anyone who has used Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. The course covers the design process from start to finish, from setting up web pages and populating them with graphics and text, to creating dynamic menus and adding special features such as widgets, slideshows, animations, embedded video, social media integration, and more. James also explains how to create an alternate layout for display on mobile devices, publish and update your site, and view analytics on web traffic.
Another way to help you understand and work with page items is the hint label. This feature provides instant visual feedback as you mouse over various objects on the page. Let's go to the Current Exhibits page, and as I mouse over various objects, you can see we'll get a text label that will tell us exactly what that object is. In this case, it's text frame. On this side, I have a group, and as I mouse over individual elements of that group, we have an image frame and a rectangle. The hint label is incredibly useful for widgets. Over here is a slideshow widget.
As I click, I can drill down to various sections like the Thumbnail Container or even the Thumbnail itself. Back in Plan mode, we'll go to the Contact Us page where I have a widget form. As I drill down, you can see I have the Form Field and the Label. We even have the Submit button at the bottom. When you start working with complicated widgets, this can be an incredibly useful tool. But once you get used to Muse for a while, it can become distracting having to see this all the time, so it's easy to turn off.
To turn off, we're just going to go to the Adobe Muse menu at the top of the screen, or on the PC, go to the Edit menu, and go down the Preferences. You can also press Command+K, or Ctrl+K. In the Preferences dialog box, just uncheck Rollover Hint Label. Now that we have this turned off, I can mouse over things, and I'll no longer see the hint label again. Be sure to pay close attention to your cursor as you work in Muse. While the hint label is useful, there is other feedback that could be useful, too, like smart guides or even the angle of a rotation.
