Dreamweaver with 2 monitors?

Aug 6, 2010 2:21 PM

Hi there,

its my first time I really want to do something productive with Dreamweaver, so I'm a totally newby.
My searches weren't successful and so I'm trying to get my problem solved here. ;-)

 

I've got a 2nd screen and I want to use booth screens. On my 1st screen there should be the normal (!) editor layout. The 2nd should be just a live-preview.

Normally Dreamweaver displays both in one window. Is there a possibility to separate them?

 

Thanks for your support!

    No.  But you can put lots of other stuff (like all of the Panels) over on the 2nd screen, allowing you to essentially fill the first screen with Design/Split/Code view.

    I might be wrong, but I'm not sure you can have both editor view and live view in two separate windows... I might be wrong!

     

    What I do is have my second screen for all of my panels leaving just the code and the editor/live view side by side on the main screen. I then switch to live view as and when needed. Having said that, What I get in dreamweaver doesn't always translate the same in firefox, safari or IE, and each of the browsers do different things to each other sometimes! So, as far as I am concerned, DW's live view should be taken with a pinch of salt, if you see what I am saying.

    DW's Live view is Safari - nothing more, and nothing less.  Safari is definitely not InternetExplorer so expect to see equivalent variations between all the browsers.  But DW's Live view is WAY better than Design view if you are tied to visual development.

    It's might be late answer but for those who still thinking how to work better with DW on 2 monitors, you can just stretch your DW's window onto second screen, then minimise code windows and drag middle separater to the right/left edges of your monitors

    I personally prefer open up onto second screen a browser and the multiscreen preview window

    If you choose design (or live) set on your primary screen, you can press F10 to display the Code Inspector and you can drag this to your second screen.

    Only problem is that it doesn't work for CSS files.

     

    I hope this helped.
