    Missing CSS and other layouts in Dreamweaver CS3

    mcjack Level 1
      I just recently upgraded to CS3 Mac -- I know, a little late -- and when I hit New > New Document window pops up with the type of new document selectable on the left and an empty field on the right when certain options on the left are selected, such as CSS. No options appear, like they do for HTML. I bought the download products (CS3 Design Premium ) and even reinstalled Dreamweaver. Still no bonus layouts. Suggestions?? I do not have the disc with this download product. It is genuine Adobe. I upgraded from Dw 8, but I have deleted 8.
      Thanks.

          This is as designed. When you select CSS as the document type, you will get
          a blank CSS declaration and you can type CSS rules to make a CSS page. That
          is what it is supposed to do. If you want the CSS layouts that come with
          the product, then select HTML (or ASP, PHP, etc) and the CSS layouts are in
          the second pane over. Select the document type like HTML and then select
          the layout you want to use in the second column and then click the Create
          button.

            A CSS page has no presentational ability. It only contains CSS rules.
            These rules are designed to affect the presentation of some associated HTML
            page.

              Thanks. Turns out it was a dumb question.
