I am a high school Web Design teacher and our district has installed DWCC. On all of our previous DW versions, we had to have students set preferences so that the sites they create would run correctly. With this version I am unsure what to have student preferences set to. I have found an article "Synchronize Dreamweaver wettings with Creative Cloud" and most of it is helpful, but I still have questions. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. 

For instance, File Types/Editors: OnlyReload Modified Files and Save On Launch. But do we choose file types to associate with Dreamweaver? Also, should I make Photoshop primary since they will be using their Photoshop images in Dreamweaver?

This is just one area where I am unsure and there are a few others in Preferences that hae me stumped because I don't know enough about this version.

Which version were you using 'til now?

 

Assuming students use valid HTML5 and modern web standards, the default DW settings work for the majority of users without any special settings.   Workspace preferences are a personal thing which can be customized to suit a user's workflow.  But I'm not sure why you think you need anything extraordinary to ensure "the sites they create would run correctly."  If that's the situation, please show us your code. 

 

I never associate file types from DW.  That's all handled at the OS level.

Thank you for your reply. The reason we set preferences is because when you have a room of students (30) times 3 or 4 classes per day who are learning DW for the first time, it helps to have consistency with items such as background color. We are also limited to some things students can use, such as our graphics software.

Thanks for reverting on this and providing insight regarding the Dw preferences usage at your end. Please let us know if the earlier provided links helped in setting the required preferences or you are still looking for having the settings updated as per your internal requirements. Accordingly we can have a remote connect session(details sent via private message) at your convinient time for having the required prefs settings done on the machine.
