Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files and CC Libraries, part of Dreamweaver CC 2017 New Features.
- [Instructor] Many of the videos in this course use files from a site about a fictitious hotel in London. If you're a premium member, you'll have access to these files, but even if you're not a premium member, you do have access to this Creative Cloud library that I'll be using. You can access the library from this URL. Log in with your Adobe ID and password. You can then save the library to your own Creative Cloud account and it will appear in the CC Libraries panel in Dreamweaver.
Premium members can also download the exercise files for this course. I've got them here on my desktop. Let's just take a quick look. The files are organized in folders for each chapter, but there are no files for chapter one. I use one of Dreamweaver's starter templates. Chapter two has a separate folder for each video, and each one contains a complete set of files for that exercise. Where changes are made to the files, the begin and end folders show the files in the state at the beginning and end of the video.
The chapter three folder contains the complete hotel website. Although some files are edited, the changes are discarded, so there's no end version. Chapter four deals with CSS preprocessors, so the begin and end folders show the hotel site at the beginning and end of the chapter. I've provided some basic files for chapter five, but you can use any files of your own. Dreamweaver is a site-based program, so you need to define a site to work with the exercise files.
When recording, I change the site definition to use the new exercise folder as the root folder. This isn't strictly necessary. You can just use the top level exercise files folder if you prefer. So now you know how the exercise files are organized, let's get on with our exploration of the new features in Dreamweaver CC 2017.
Stay tuned for new tutorials and Dreamweaver tips. We'll update the course every time Adobe releases changes in 2017.
