Adobe Dreamweaver CS5: simplification and help for the new users.

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, November 27, 2015

First time users encountered an improved and simplified assistants, to save confusion. In addition, instructions on how to efficiently use the default layout of a web page for someone without experience have included a constant help. I also found something really useful is that we can navigate the HTML and PHP using the same links page, and can filter files by format to focus on the construction of PHP or CSS layout.

Something that greatly appreciate the DTP is the new mode called Inspect Mode, If we add the possibility of seeing how the HTML code automatically changes depending on the Javascript event we are running live in the rendered web page, Dreamweaver win many points comfort against its competitors. And for those who like to observe the code of other websites to learn (not to borrow code, hopefully), Dreamweaver is now able to surf the Internet and see live changes in the source code of any page. Dreamweaver CSS5 has full support for Subversion, which can seamlessly manage the development of our websites using the version control system SVN

Pros

  • The program starts quickly and has a light and fast performance
  • Improved and streamlined assistants to novice users

Cons

  • Not a single improvement over databases
