I have been utilizing Macromedia items for my site creation for quite a long time. I just as of late found another approach to plan that has made my life significantly simpler. Preceding the "Layers" highlight, I generally thought that it was hard to make a page look how I would have preferred it to because of the way that I needed to place everything into tables or simply position my pictures around my content and trust in the best. Presently, Dreamweaver offers this executioner alternate way to making a site: Layers. Envision having the option to put anything (text, tables, designs, whatever) WHERE EVER you need!! This is an outright boon in the plan world all things considered. 


Presently, I just found this element in Dreamweaver 8. There were past forms of Dreamweaver (MX2004, and so on) that likewise took into consideration this component. In any case, I am happy that I had the option to discover it and use it since it has had an impressive effect in the plan for sites for me. 


The idea is basic: make another page. To do this you should have first settled inside Dreamweaver's site director a site from with which you will work in. By right tapping on the site name in the properties bar you get a drop down menu with numerous choices, one of which is "New File". Make another .html record and afterward double tap that document to open it in the primary Dreamweaver working window. The subsequent stage is to embed your first layer. Under the "Supplement" part of the top device bar go to "Format Objects" and afterward to "Layer". A little blue box will show up on your page. In the event that you click on the edge of the container you get these little squares around the border of the case considering resizing. You will likewise see a little square in the upper right hand side of the new layer which when you click your mouse button on this square it takes into consideration you to reposition the layer to any place you wish to put it on your site. 


You would now be able to put anything you need inside this case (layer) including text, streak films, designs, tables, library things, etc. The most marvelous component of this is that you have all out power over where it is set on your page and Dreamweaver will naturally write in the html code the specific X and Y organizes that your program will mean show the page appropriately. It doesn't beat this. 


I discovered this element to be fundamentally the same as working in Adobe Photoshop on the grounds that with layers you have all out power over each part of the plan, without the pressure related with website architecture.

Presently state you need to add some content to a layer yet the content runs far away the page or distant the size of the layer box size you picked. Well Dreamweaver has settled that issue also. In the properties controller at the lower part of the screen you have a drop down box marked "Flood". On the off chance that you drop down this container you have a couple of decisions, Visible, Hidden, Scroll, and Auto. For the model I am clarifying here you would pick "Parchment". This advises Dreamweaver to write in the code that if your content over streams the size you assigned for the layer box to embed a parchment include permitting your guests to look down the content to peruse whatever you set in that layer box. Pretty smooth!! 


Different highlights with utilizing layers is that you have a decision to name your layers in the Layers Tab on the upper right instrument menu just as setting the progression of each layer. I do energetically prescribe that in the event that you choose to utilize different layers that you spare yourself a significant cerebral pain and mark each layer as per what it is identified with on your screen. This makes altering the layer later on a lot simpler. 


Layers permit you to include the opportunity inside website architecture that ought to have been there from the beginning. I propose you check this out and play with it and see what innovative things you can concoct. Go crazy with this element and play around with it. No one can tell what will come out since the limits have been dropped! 


Different highlights that are pretty smooth are the capacity to cover two pictures on a page. In the event that you were doing an imaginative introduction or something comparative, this is a kewl highlight which can be killed on the upper right hand side of the "Layers" Properties box. Just put in a check mark under "Forestall Overlaps" and afterward you don't need to stress over it. Dreamweaver will naturally ensure that nothing covers in the layers. In any case on the off chance that you needed to have a covering impact of state two pictures, at that point ensure that the Prevent Overlaps is unchecked and you will additionally open the wizardry of this magnificent component. 


All things considered, this is a truly great element, yet it takes some becoming acclimated to. It disrupts all the guidelines of what we had recently discovered that we could and couldn't do with website architecture. This takes that to the following level without making you go after the ibuprofen. 


A couple of different choices incorporate an order called "convert layers to tables" and "convert tables to layers". On the top apparatus bar in Dreamweaver, on the off chance that you go to 'Alter' -  Convert -  you have the two alternatives I just referenced. Tapping on convert layers to tables will computerize Dreamweaver to begin figuring down to the pixel how to plan a table out of the data you have given to it by putting layers on the page in specific territories. This component is essentially utilized for those web surfers who have a program that isn't modern (for example Rendition 5 or prior of Internet Explorer or Netscape) The new forms of most significant programs presently uphold and appropriately show layer content inside the program window. In any case, on the off chance that you feel that your intended interest group probably won't have refreshed programs, at that point you should seriously think about this component. Actually I don't utilize it since it is uncommon that individuals these days have obsolete program innovation with the entirety of the Automated Windows Updates what not. 


The specific inverse in the event that you pick convert tables to layers. On the off chance that you as of now have a site and you fabricated it in tables, picking the choice to 'convert tables to layers' will do precisely that. 


I trust that this assists somebody with trip who is doing their own plan and needs to make their page look the manner in which they imagine it in their mind without the pressure of agonizing over how to build the correct table and masterminding things in that table to get it going. Website architecture is pushing ahead and Macromedia has returned the amusing to website composition once more!
