I posted this question earlier in the web discussions area, being unaware of a forum specific to Dreamweaver. Sorry for posting in two different places.
For the past week, I have been learning Dreamweaver CS4 from an online tutorial. I got to the place where I generated a template (index.dwt) from the main page (index.html) and created some editable regions on it. At that point, I realized that I had done all the steps by rote and did not actually absorb what I was doing. I wanted to delete the template in order to repeat the steps and gain a better understanding of the process. When I tried to delete the editable regions (modify-templates-remove editable regions), I was unable to do so because "remove editable regions" was greyed out. Nor was I able to delete the html code. I tried to delete the template itself, but when I did that, the index.html page retained those editable regions! Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get back to the place I was in before creating the template?
Thank you for any assistance.
All you need to do is detach the index.html file from the template. Then you can delete the template and start all over.
Go to the Modify menu --> Templates --> Detach from Template
Thank you, Robert!
I just followed your instructions and it worked. How simple! Thanks, again.
