Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

New Dreamweaver Adds Features and Templates

Send Article to a Friend

Macromedia is now shipping Dreamweaver 2.0, an update of its Web authoring package. The new version adds several features that Web designers will appreciate, such contextual menus for manipulating table and cell attributes, a graphical map for visual site management, support for XML (Extensible Markup Language), and an eyedropper tool that can select colors from anywhere on the desktop and then shift to the nearest Web-safe color. Dreamweaver 2.0 also includes Dream Templates, which enable designers to easily change content within a locked page design. For text-level HTML editing, Dreamweaver ships with Bare Bones Software's BBEdit 5.0 (see "HTML Enhancements Highlight BBEdit 5.0" in TidBITS 454). Dreamweaver 2.0 requires a Power Macintosh running System 7.5.5 or higher and 24 MB of RAM, and retails for $300. Owners of Dreamweaver 1.2 can upgrade for $130, or pay $99 for an electronic-only upgrade.
