Let me describe a typical task, which has to be done manually by a web author:
Add an id-value to a specific element e.g. to be able to address it via an fragment idendifier
I'm looking for way to do that via shortcut and not via GUI.
The initial situation is:
You are in the design view and the cursor is inside an element.
I'm looking for a script/extension/whatever to get a little popupdialog after pressing a shortcut, which let's you immediately entering the value of the idea.
Enter should insert the id attribute. That's it.
In other words: a fast way to perform a regular task in as few steps as possible. Without moving the hands from the keyboard.
Many years ago, for DW4, I had an extension for that purpose. It was a joy to use it.
If this forum is not the right one to ask questions about scripts/extensions to modify/extend the behaviour of DW, please let me know.
Is there another, better forum for such discussions?
You can create a DW "snippet" of the desired string, and assign a shortcut to it.
A snippet is not a solution for the situation I described.
Please remember, that we are talking about the design view.
It sounds like you are dealing with a large number of records. If you were managing the website content through a database, there would be simple ways to accomplish what you need.
