Monday (Sept. 24) was quite a day for web designers and developers and Creative Cloud members! We kicked off the first leg of the Create the Web Tour in San Francisco, where we shared a number of updates and announcements. If you weren’t there for the action or able to tune in to the live stream, no worries! We’ve recapped all of the news for you:
Dreamweaver Updates – Exclusively for Creative Cloud members
Creative Cloud Dreamweaver users will be excited to hear that we’ve introduced six new features for easier authoring of HTML5-based websites, new support for compositions from Adobe Edge Animate, more robust FTP transfers, and more. Check out this video for a quick run-through:
I’m excited to show you new features and enhanced features in version 1.5 of Adobe Proto. V1.0 was just porting Android version to iOS native version and this time we could implement new feature sets based on user’s feedback.
Mainly, we focused on easy to share files, copy & paste workflow. Here is the new feature sets.
Sharing zipped file easily
“Email” interactive wireframe (html.zip) as attachment
You can now email your interactive wireframe directly from Proto. Just attach html.zip file onto email and send it to your co-worker or client. The attachment is a zipped file and easily uncompressed and ready to use in Dreamweaver or any other HTML/CSS editor.
“Share” interactive wireframe via Dropbox and other Apps
If you have Dropbox application installed on your iPad, you can share your interactive wireframe zipped file right away.
Copy & Paste improvements
Copy & Paste objects to different pages
We added a clipboard icon in editor. Now you can copy & paste your object form one page to another from the clipboard menu, top navigation or context menu.
Paste and Pin objects across selected pages (i.e. share objects across pages)
Not only can you paste objects to a different page, we added a new function “Paste and Pin.”
Pin across pages
Select object and from context menu, you can set to paste the current object across all the pages. Once you did this, the object will show up to all the pages and whatever you modify this object will reflect change across all pages.
Global Menu (By default, Menu bar objects are pinned across all pages)
When you create menu and create multiple pages, the menu will automatically carry over all the pages. When you edit text inside menu, edit links to pages, the change will reflect across all the pages. There is another improvement for code generation for the global menu. Proto generate common.css that is used for all the pages.
“Bring Forward” “Move Backward” Z-order change via Context Menu
You can manage z-index order for overlapped objects from context menu.
Lock and Unlock object for editing
You can lock & unlock object. This helps you to avoid mistakenly moving object while editing another object closed by.
Show current page name while previewing a project in the App
At preview mode, you can see current page name in title bar right next to project name.
Rename project name in the action bar (title) of the editor
You can rename project name in organizer mode. You can now edit project name while in editor mode. Simply tap project name on top left corner to edit current working project.
Show undo/redo count
As same as Adobe Ideas, you can see the number of undo/redo count when you perform undo/redo
Objects should snap to both CSS Column and Design Grid
Now, it’s much easily and precisely snap object onto grid.
Better Code Generation
Code generated is now ordered according to the appearance in the page and so is now more structured hierarchically V1.0 generated divs based on the order of the object modification. V1.5 generates divs based on top to bottom order in the screen.
All pinned objects generate a separate common CSS file (common.css)
Since pinned objects are used in multiple pages, having separate common CSS make you easy to manage code.
We hope those new feature sets and enhancement feature sets will help you boost up your creative workflow.

Meet Jordan Casey – one of the youngest developers in Europe. At just 12 years old, he’s already created Alien Ball VS Humans and its sequel, Alien Ball VS Humans 2 Holiday under his own company, Casey Games. Our team first met him when Adobe was at Cannes Lions last month and jumped at the opportunity to ask this young, Irish prodigy a few questions about his creative process and how he got started. Below is an excerpt of the conversation:
Adobe: When did you first start developing and what inspired you to get started?
Jordan Casey: I first started developing when I was nine, I was playing a flash multiplayer game called Club Penguin and saw that other kids were building websites and blogs about it, and I saw that this could be fun, so I learned three languages: HTML, Actionscript 2.0 and CSS and went ahead and made my site.
Adobe Proto and Adobe Collage have been available for Android, and we’re excited to share that they’re now available on iOS!

We never cease to be amazed by the stunning work created by artists around the world, using Adobe products to help make their art a reality. For our new Creative Suite 6 imagery, we searched across the globe for artists who value creativity above all else, and tapped into their skills and vision to create a humanized interpretation for each of our products. To give back to these artists who devote themselves to their craft, we captured their stories in our Creative Suite Artist Spotlight video series.
