The 2014 Release Of Dreamweaver CC Brings New Live View Features And Big Productivity Improvements

Today we’re excited to announce the 2014 release of Dreamweaver CC! This latest version will improve your productivity and streamline your web design process, making it quicker for you to build and edit your web and mobile projects.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? Download Dreamweaver CC now.

Here’s what you’ll find in this release:

New Live View editing

This update adds new editing features within Live View, which was upgraded to use a brand new rendering engine last August. You can now visually edit your page and preview changes without switching between display modes and constantly refreshing.

 

Need to change an image? Click on it and swap it out. Need to edit text? Change it without having to scrub through your markup. With Element Display, you have quick access to CSS selectors, tag information, image editing properties and text editing and formatting, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time with development tools to decipher how and where CSS properties are applied. Now, you can click on HTML elements inside of Live View and immediately see the element tag, applied CSS selectors, so you can quickly add or delete selectors found in your stylesheets. You now also have access to the CSS Designer, Insert Panel, Properties Inspector and other panels to quickly build and edit your page within Live View. Learn more about how to use Live View features here.

Element Quick View

Navigating HTML markup can be tedious since all your tags get lost between the content that fills your page. With the Element Quick View you get access to a display list of all the elements within your DOM (kind of like an elements panel for HTML) without having to sift through the noise of additional markup. Inside of this view you can view applied CSS selectors and rearrange, duplicate or delete elements. Your selection is also highlighted in both Code and Live views to see where the element lives on your page. Learn more about how to use the Element Quick View here.

 

Copy/Paste CSS

Copy > paste > edit is an old and cumbersome method of writing CSS that’s error prone. Now in the CSS Designer you can right click on a selector to copy all of the applied styles and paste them onto a new selector. You can filter what you copy by layout, text, border, background or animation styles and even navigate to live websites within Dreamweaver and grab styles from there. It’s the little things that add up.

There’s more you’ll find in this release, including new video tutorials to help you get started, site management certificate support and other improvements and bug fixes. See a full list of what’s new here.

Amazing interior design and architecture resource

Have you ever wondered where interior designers go for inspiration and ideas? More than 70,000 of them rely on the Trade Only Design Library (TODL), a site that connects them with sellers of goods for residential and commercial interior design projects. For manufacturers, TODL is also a great resource, generating 4,000 targeted leads monthly.

To keep both buyers and sellers engaged and make the site easier to navigate, TODL recently redesigned the site using Adobe Dreamweaver CC. Executive Creative Director Scotty Smith appreciated how Live View and Code View in Dreamweaver CC saved him time and helped him improve the site’s code. The responsive website is now easily accessible by designers in the office on a desktop computer or at a job site using a tablet or a smartphone.

TODL benefitted from working with tools in Adobe Creative Cloud and looks forward to taking advantage of even more time-saving features and services. “Adobe Creative Cloud has already saved us time by enabling us to easily share files, send links to files that can be viewed using standard web browsers, and integrate a wealth of creative new features into our designs,” says Smith.

Visualize Relationships Between HTML Elements in Live View & Applied CSS Selectors

A few months ago, we announced a new Dreamweaver CC update with several exciting new features.

One of these, the Live Highlight feature, lets you visualize the relationships between HTML elements in Live View and applied CSS selectors.

Let’s review how Live Highlight works. In the screenshot below, a user intends to make changes to the ‘Cart’ navigation link. To make changes to HTML elements, the user usually starts by selecting the CSS selector “.SiteNavLink a” and editing the associated properties. These changes could however inadvertently change other HTML elements that the user might have no intention of changing at all.

Using Live Highlight, users can now simply click the CSS selector in the CSS Designer panel to see the affected page elements. These elements are highlighted in blue in Live View mode. Users decide if they want to create a separate Selector that applies to ‘Cart‘ alone, thus leaving the styles for other links undisturbed.

Enjoy the video below that shows how to use the new Live Highlight feature. Also, check out this article for more info http://ref.sx/LiveHighlightDreamweaver

 

Download and get your hands on the modernized Dreamweaver CC with exciting features that make mobile and web content creation a more streamlined and productive experience.

Dreamweaver CC: Your all-in-one tool for creating, publishing, and managing websites and mobile content

We are pleased to announce the release of a modernized and streamlined Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver CC is the all-in-one visual tool to efficiently and intuitively create, publish and manage websites and mobile content.

New in Dreamweaver CC:
Create immersive web experiences with the new CSS Designer and visually apply CSS properties such as gradients, box shadows, and more. Dreamweaver CC is committed to producing clean, web-standards code, enabling you to design without the need to hand-code.

Dreamweaver CC also includes enhancements to its responsive design framework, Fluid Grid Layouts. We’ve addressed key usability issues to improve the design workflow, and to help you visually construct and build responsive websites that render properly on multiple screen sizes and devices.

By removing under-utilized features in Dreamweaver, we are clearing the way to provide optimized workflows for the latest and most relevant front-end web technologies and standards. Over time we plan to evolve the Dreamweaver feature set to include relevant middle-layer and server side technologies as well. Our aim is to provide the ultimate user experience – a collection of productive and modern visual development features in a single tooling environment.

We have just begun the modernization process and invite you to voice your opinion. We are committed to taking action on customer feedback and remaining as transparent as possible about our future plans. More details will follow on what the modernization effort entails in Dreamweaver CC, and we eagerly await your feedback.

Over the past 12 months, we have been expanded Dreamweaver’s integration with many Creative Cloud services and tools. One of the many benefits to being part of the Creative Cloud is that you can access the vast and ever-growing Adobe Edge Web Fonts library. Also, with web technologies evolving rapidly, Dreamweaver CC helps you keep up by implementing features and addressing issues quickly. Creative Cloud members will receive regular updates to Dreamweaver.

Another benefit of integration with Creative Cloud is Sync: Dreamweaver CC lets you sync both site settings and preferences, streamlining your creation workflow. Sync in seconds and start creating without the need to recreate or manually copy and paste files. With Dreamweaver CC & Creative Cloud, the creative world is at your fingertips.

This Week in Dreamweaver Extensibility

Hi,
The Dreamweaver team is happy to announce the release of 3 extensions this week!
We got feedback on a number of issues that we could solve via extensions, so we packaged them up.
First is the HTML5 pack for Dreamweaver CS3 and CS4. We released a version for CS5 only and we heard from users that they wanted it too. This extension contains the code hinting for:

  • New HTML5 tags
  • New attributes and values for existing tags.
  • Many CSS3 features.
  • Some -moz and -webkit CSS properties.

Multi-screen Preview, Media Queries and Starter Layouts were not included since they were not fully backwards compatible.
So hopefully this will help DW users get into all the new HTML5 goodies.
Second, some CS5 users were sad to see the Validator feature go away. We got a lot of requests for this feature, so we packaged up the files to reinstate it.
After installing, you will get the old File > Validate > Markup back in the menu and the Results panel.
Fair warning: We removed it because it wasn’t totally accurate, so check with the W3C before you go live. People like this feature to find bugs in product, before they get to W3C.
And lastly, DW CS4 users that are trying out the Widget Browser, and specifically the new Spry UI widgets are getting a warning about missing widget code. DW CS4 isn’t recognizing these new widgets as Spry widgets. So we made an extension with a new translator that recognizes the new widgets and suppresses the warning.
So we hope that these new extensions will solve some issues for users. Let us know if you have other things you would like to see. We read every e-mail that comes through the wish list and it is how we saw these issues come up, so let us know!
Thanks,
Donald Booth
