    Drawing in Dreamweaver

    Chante11e
      Is there a way of drawing lines in Dreamweaver? At the moment I am adding a screen dump and text in Dreamweaver then having to add arrows/lines using FrontPage. This is really faffy as the lines do not look right and the arrows appear higher or lower than what they were when I drew them on FrontPage!

      It would be great if someone could give me some tips.

      Many Thanks

          DW is not a draw program, and neither is FP. If you look at your FP pages
          in anything other than IE, you won't see those lines you have drawn.

          You can use an HTML horizontal rule for a horizontal line, or you can use a
          border on a page element for the same purpose.

            Thanks for the reply. Does this mean drawing arrows won't work? I have inserted a screen dump and I am wanting to point to specific areas of the image using arrows.

            Thanks

              Yes.

              You'll have to add the arrows in an image editor or screen capture software
              such as SnagIt.

              Then insert the image (complete with arrows) into the page using DW.
