Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Unlocking individual documents in Windows, part of Dreamweaver CC New Features.
- [Instructor] In the Windows version of Dreamweaver,…new documents always open in tabs like this…so you can tab between open documents,…but only one of them is ever visible at any given time.…Unlike the Mac version,…there's no option in Preferences to turn off tabs.…But in Dreamweaver CC 2018,…Windows users can now undock individual document windows.…By the way, there are no exercise files for this video.…Just open any site in Dreamweaver.…To undock a document window,…just grab its tab with your mouse pointer,…drag away and then release,…and it turns into a floating window…that you can then move across onto a second monitor.…
Now you can't see my second monitor,…so let's just drag this back into view.…And because it's a floating window, it's also resizable.…When you have floating document windows like this,…the Code, Split, and Live buttons in the Document tool bar…affect whichever window has focus.…Currently, this floating window has focus,…so if I click Live up here,…this window turns into Live view,…but it doesn't affect this window here.…
