Is there a key for changing between CODE, LIVE and SPLIT views?

I have only room for one monitor (unfortunately) and use the SPLIT view... but I find this space very limiting for coding. Most of my changes I type in code view, but I like seseing live view update. I would prefer to change from code and live views with the button, but it's a bit slow, so I'm wondering if there is a simple shortcut key to change back and fourth... or if there isn't, can I assign one and where? (Preferences?)

Hi @GoombaGurl,

 

Thanks for writing to us. Can you please try the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+` to toggle between code and live view. This will work if you are in full code view and want to switch to full live view or vice versa.

 

Have a pleasant day!

 

Regards,

I work on a single display, no problem.

 

Customize your workspace. 

https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/dreamweaver-workflow-workspace.html

 

Maximize space by dragging, docking or grouping panels.  Close non-essential panels and toolbars. 

You can find them again from the Windows menu.  Save your new Workspace settings.  See screenshot.

Use the View Menu or Document Toolbar to select your desired view mode Code | Split | Live/Design.

 

To toggle between LIVE and DESIGN view, use Ctrl + Shift + F11. 

 

Hope that helps.

my workspace is optimized... but there's only so much room for the code and live views and on split it's a limited space. i dont mind flipping back and fourth, just asking if there is a key to shortcut it.

That's a shame 🙂 May be a good idea for an Adobe update. I have a second monitor, but sadly, currently no room in my workspace.

 

THanks!

Dreamweaver is not receiving any new features.  It's in minimal status mode.

 

Try reducing magnification.  Ctrl + - (minus).  Repeat as needed in CODE & LIVE/DESIGN view panels.

Your "solutions" aren't even part of the original question nor are you addressing the issue. Has NOTHING to do with the display and lack of space... im talking about changing from live to code view... thats it.

 

Dreamweaver does updates all the time. So another untrue statement made.

 

And of course, I'm not looking at a new feature. The feature is there. Just asked if there was a shortcut key. Ben answered the question. Answer is no.

I offered workarounds for maximizing your workspace.  That's all I can suggest.  Sorry if that's not what you want to hear.

Actually a 100% true statement.  Apart from minimal security & compatibility patches, no new features have been added to Dreamweaver since 2021.  Like it or not, Dreamweaver will never receive new shortcuts.  It is what it is...

 

Goodbye & good luck.

Well, it's not exactly the same thing you're looking for, but would pretty seamlessly act like it...

Open your Code Inspector Window (F10 or Window > Code Inspector)
Drag it, and stretch it to cover your Live View
Save your Workspace under Window > Workspace Layout > Save Current
Close the Code Inspector with F10

From there on out, you can hit F10 to "switch" to "Code View" with the inspector covering Live/Design, closing it with another F10, then Ctrl + Shift + F11 to switch between Live or Design...

Two shortcuts, but all views using button presses.
