Example text

The default Classic workspace layout in the Mac version of Dreamweaver attaches the Insert bar to the end of the Application bar, as shown at the top of Figure 1-17. The Mac version of the Application bar contains only a few items, so converting the Insert panel to a toolbar makes much better use of your screen real estate. As noted earlier, if you don’t want the Application bar, you can turn it off in the Mac version by selecting Window ➤ Application Bar. This shifts the Insert bar left to occupy the space previously taken by the Application bar, as shown at the bottom of Figure 1-17.

For example, pressing F4 still hides most panels, but moving your mouse to the edge of the screen brings back anything hidden on that side (read “Temporarily hiding panels,” if you want to disable that behavior). Because there are so many features in the UI, you might 2 D R E A M W E AV E R ’ S N E W L O O K — M O R E T H A N S K I N D E E P want to skim quickly through this chapter to see what it contains, and come back later when you need to find out how a particular feature works.

Tabs are created from left to right in the same order as the pages are opened, but you can drag and drop them into any order. 1 Viewing the file path The physical file path of the currently selected document is displayed in the dark-gray bar alongside the tabs. Unfortunately, if you have a large number of tabs open, this conceals the file path. However, you can always see the file path by hovering your mouse pointer over the document’s tab, where it is displayed as a tooltip. The Coding toolbar (described in the “Using the Coding toolbar” section later in this chapter) also displays a list showing the full path name of all open files.
