    Dreamweaver Snippets and Site Settings

    JNULL831
      I have a home computer and an office computer that I move a copy of the data back and forth with a portable drive. I am wanting to put my Dreamweaver CS3 snippets and web site settings (for multiple web sites) on the portable drive so that I can access that info from home or from the office w/ that computers copy of DW CS3. Please advise on how to redirect Dreamweaver to look at the portable drive to collect this info?

      And, where does Dreamweaver, Windows XP on PC, store the site settings?

      Thanx!

          1. In DW Site Manager on the Office computer, select the sites and click
          EXPORT. Export these site definitions to the external drive.
          2. In DW Site Manager on the Home computer, click IMPORT, browse to the
          location on the external drive, select the *.ste files, and click OK.

          To get the User defined Snippets, you would have to Copy them from the
          folder found here -

          (on XP)
          C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver
          10\Configuration\Snippets

          (on Vista)
          C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver
          CS4\en_US\Configuration\Snippets

          (these folders are normally hidden - you would have to use Explorer > Tools
          > Folder Options to unhide them)

          or on Mac -
          Library/Application Support/Macromedia/Dreamweaver
          CS4/en_us/Configuration/Snippets
