    Dreamweaver Help: Code Coloring specific tags

    mangebo0x

      Hello everyone,

       

      I would like to set some custom Code Colors on HTML tags in DW to help me in recognizing those tags when I open a page in DW's Code View. I was able to find this BLOG post saying that it this is possible in DW by updating some DW preference files; source: http://blogs.adobe.com/dreamweaver/2009/02/code_coloring_specific_tags.html.. I am a non-technical person so I find it difficult to do the setup. The reason I want this is for me to easily find the text in Code View just by noticing the code color.

       

      E.g. I want this <span class="specialText"> to have a red code color in DW's Code View

       

      I hope there's someone who can guide me on how to accomplish this.

       

      Thanks

          Go to Edit > Preferences > Code Coloring > HTML > Edit Coloring Scheme.

           

          In DW, <span> tags have the same color scheme as <p> and <h > tags.  I'm not sure  if you can change that.

           

          As a workaround for quickly finding all span tags of a certain class, use Find (Ctrl+F), Specific Tag, Find All button.  See screenshot:
