File Compare

  • WinMerge
    WinMerge is an Open Source (GPL) visual text file differencing and merging tool for Windows. It is highly useful for determing what has changed between project versions, and then merging changes between versions.
  • Beyond Compare
    Beyond Compare 3 is the ideal tool for comparing files and folders on your Windows or Linux system. Visualize changes in your code and carefully reconcile them.

Converting between layers and tables

Convert AP Divs to Tables

You can create your layout using layers, then convert the layers to tables so that your layout can be viewed in older browsers. Before you convert to tables, make sure layers do not overlap


Creating and managing a list of favorite assets

Because the Assets panel's Site list always shows all of the recognized assets in the site, this list can become cumbersome for some large sites. You can add frequently used assets to a Favorites list, group related assets together, give them nicknames to remind you what they're for, and find them easily in the Assets panel
NOTE Favorite assets are not stored as separate files on your disk; they're references to the assets in the Site list. Dreamweaver keeps track of which assets from the Site list to display in the Favorites list. Most of the operations of the Assets panel are the same in the Favorites list as in the Site list.
However, there are several tasks that you can perform only in the Favorites list. .


Creating a web photo album

Create web photo album input box

You can automatically generate a website that showcases a photo album of images located in a given folder. Dreamweaver uses Fireworks to create a thumbnail image and a larger-sized image for each of the images in the folder. Dreamweaver then creates a web page containing all the thumbnails, as well as links to the larger images.
To create a web photo album, you must have both Dreamweaver and Fireworks 4 or later installed on your system. Before you begin, place all of the images for your photo album in a single folder. (The folder is not required to be in a site.)
In addition, make sure that the image filenames have any of the following extensions: .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .psd, .tif, or .tiff. Images with unrecognized file extensions are not included in the photo album.
