2  The Dreamweaver Welcome Screen first opens when you start Dreamweaver.  This screen gives you quick access to previously opened files, the ability to create new files and templates, and other information.  If you do not want this screen to show, check the “Don’t Show Again” box at the bottom of the screen. © Ms. Masihi

3  To create a new HTML Document, click HTML under Create New.  This opens Dreamweaver in the Design View (default) with panels on the right, menu bar and tabs on top, and property inspector on the bottom of the workspace if you are in CLASSIC layout.  For all class lessons, we will be using the CLASSIC layout. © Ms. Masihi

4  In the CLASSIC Layout the Insert Bar is located on the top of the Dreamweaver Workspace and contains several Tabs: Common, Layout, Forms, Data, Spry, Text and Favorites.  Each Tab contains different icons (representing elements you can add to your web page) shown on the line below the tabs. © Ms. Masihi

5  The Common Tab contains some of the most frequently used icons to insert links, table, email link, named anchors, dates, and images. © Ms. Masihi

6  You may customize the Insert Bar using the Favorites Tab by adding the most commonly used icons to the Favorites Tab.  Right click an icon and the Customize Favorite Objects Dialog Box opens. © Ms. Masihi

7  Select an item and Click >> to add an item to the favorites tab.  Use the up and down arrows to move an icon up or down.  Click Add Separator to add a separating line between icons. © Ms. Masihi

8  The Properties Inspector is a context-sensitive panel located at the bottom of the workspace.  The contents change depending on the item selected on the page and whether you select HTML or CSS setting. © Ms. Masihi

9  The Properties Inspector is will create HTML inline styles when you select HTML properties.  Inline styles should only be used for short formatting specific to one area of your document. © Ms. Masihi

10  Inline styles are stored in the body of your document surrounding the affected page element.  If you want to change the format you must find each area in your document and modify each element. © Ms. Masihi

11  Formatting using CSS will create a CSS Rule which will create a Rule in an Internal Style Sheet.  Using CSS Rules to format page elements is the preferred way to format page elements.  Internal Styles can be saved in an External Styles File and applied to multiple pages. © Ms. Masihi

12  Across the top of the document workspace is the Document Toolbar.  You may change how you view the page, title the document, preview the page in a Web Browser, and more. © Ms. Masihi
