    Nothing happens when I insert table. I did place the cursor where I wanted the table. Also tryed Format Table but couldn't because it didn't recognize a table because it never got inserted. I will have to probably reinstall the software.

    I'm having the same problem... it's almost like the insert function is turned off...

    Does anything happen when you use the table insert? Make sure you cursor is where you want the table to be inserted.

    Try using the Format Table option also.

In Layout mode, you can’t use the Insert Table and Draw AP Div tools that you can use in Standard mode. To use those tools, you must first switch to Standard mode.

Is Dreamweaver MX 2004 bilingual? I want to write my website text in both English and Welsh often on the same page, I am unable to find the accents/symbols needed for Welsh words. ie the Welsh for "Dogs"...


Dreamweaver is just software to build a web page/site. If you want your web page/site to show Welsh characters, you have to code the characters. A list of HTML codes for different characters can be found here: http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm Using the Split or Code views, you can type in the HTML code for any character and it will display the character on a web page.
Hope this helps!

Website design


depending on how much flash it has in it and if you want to actually edit the flash there may be several options

Microsoft Expression Web is a basic web design program that will allow flash components in your site.

You may want to also look into an academic version of dreamweaver.

I have never ordered from here but this site looks like it had the academia for $85

Macromedia dreamweaver to crate menu bar


  1. Load your index.html page as before. That is, doubleclick the file in the Files pane in the right column.
  2. Locate your existing navigation menu, which at this time merely consists of a series of links to your home page, About Us page, Contact Us page and the Site Map. Select them and delete them. We will be completely replacing them in this chapter.
    1. Make sure that the blinking text cursor is currently in the side bar. If it is not, click somewhere in the side bar. Now click "Insert | Spry | Spry Menu Bar" from the menu. That is, click the "Insert" menu, then the "Spry" item on the menu that appears, and finally on "Spry Menu Bar" on the submenu that appears.
    2. A dialog box will appear asking you whether you want a horizontal menu bar or a vertical one. Since we are placing the menu bar in the left column, we want a vertical menu bar. Select the "Vertical" option and click OK.
    3. A default menu bar will be inserted into your side bar. If you look at the Properties pane at the bottom of your Dreamweaver window, you will see that the text and links for menu items are displayed there.
    4. Select "Item 1" by clicking on it, if it is not already selected. In the "Text" box, replace the words "Item 1" with "Home" (without the quotes). Replace the default "Link" text of "#" with "index.html" (without the quotes).
    5. By default Dreamweaver created a submenu for your menu. We don't need one, so we will need to delete it. Select "Item 1.1". Directly above "Item 1.1" are two buttons "+" and "-". Click the "-" item to delete Item 1.1. Do the same for "Item 1.2" and "Item 1.3".
    6. Now do the same with the other items, replacing the text with the appropriate words for your site, and the links with the actual page names. If there are submenus, delete them as you did for Item 1. For your convenience, the replacement text and links are reproduced below from chapter 3. Note that Item 3 has a three-level menu system. Delete all submenus (item 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3) - we won't need them.
      • Text: About Us, Link: aboutus.html
      • Text: Contact Us, Link: feedback.html
      • Text: Site Map, Link: sitemap.html
    7. Click "File | Save". A dialog box will pop up telling you that certain files have been added to your site, and that these files will need to be uploaded. Click "OK".
    8. Now upload the page to your website using "Site | Put" and check the results in your browser. Hover your mouse over your menu buttons, and you will see that they change colour.
    Customizing the Spry Framework's Menu Bar Widget While adding the Spry Framework's navigation menu bar to your web page is a simple procedure under Dreamweaver, customizing it is, however, another cup of tea. There is no built-in method to do so under Dreamweaver's user interface. You will have to do it manually.
    The fastest way to do this is to do it via Dreamweaver's "Code" view.
    Dreamweaver has two basic ways you can work on your website. So far, you have been creating your site using the "Design" view. The "Design" view allows you to work on your web page using the What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) editor - that is, as you create your web page, you basically see the page as a visitor would when they visit your website.
    The "Design" view hides the real code, the HTML and CSS code, that Dreamweaver generates for your website. This code, the "raw" code, if you will, is the actual content that is uploaded (published) to your website. When your visitor loads your web page, the browser takes the "raw" code and displays it according to the instructions given in the "raw" code.
    To customize the Spry Framework's menu bar widget, you will be using Dreamweaver's facility for viewing this "raw" code for your website. Even if you find the menu bar widget satisfactory at the moment, you should still take the following steps to familiarize yourself with Dreamweaver's "Code" view. You will be using the Code view in a future chapter to insert your feedback form code.
    To switch to the "Code" view, click "View | Code" from the menu. Instead of the web page that you are accustomed to viewing, you will now see the "raw" HTML code for that page. If you scroll up and down the page, you should be able to see your content amidst other characters. These other characters, things like "<p>" and the like, are the formatting code that tells the browser how it should render your page.
    Centering the Menu Bar Scroll to the top of the index.html file in "Code" view. Locate the text "</head>" (without the quotes) somewhere near the top of the file. Place your cursor just before "</head>" on the same line. Hit ENTER (or RETURN) to insert a blank line. When you do this, the entire line with "</head>" should move downwards, creating a new blank line. Move the cursor to the blank line.
    Now copy the text from the box below and paste it into the blank line you just created in Dreamweaver. To copy the text, select all the text in the box with your mouse, click the right mouse button (or if you use Mac OS X, hold down the Control key on the keyboard and click the mouse), and select Copy from the menu that appears. To paste it into Dreamweaver, switch to the Dreamweaver window. Make sure that your text cursor is in the correct location (in the blank line above the word "</head>"). Select "Edit | Paste" from the menu. <style type="text/css">
    ul.MenuBarVertical
    {
    margin: 0 auto ;
    width: 8em;
    }
    </style>

Dreamweaver CS3


Import Microsoft Office documents (Windows only) You can insert the full contents of a Microsoft Word or Excel document in a new or existing web page. When you import a Word or Excel document, Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML and inserts it into your web page. The file’s size, after Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML, must be less than 300K.
Instead of importing the entire contents of a file, you can also paste portions of a Word document and preserve the formatting.
Note: If you use Microsoft Office 97, you cannot import the contents of a Word or Excel document; you must insert a link to the document.
  1. Open the web page into which you want to insert the Word or Excel document.
  2. In Design view, do one of the following to select the file:
    • Drag the file from its current location to the page where you want the content to appear.
    • Select File > Import > Word Document or File > Import > Excel Document.
  3. In the Insert Document dialog box, browse to the file you want to add, select any of the formatting options from the Formatting pop-up menu at the bottom of the dialog box, and then click Open. Text Only Inserts unformatted text. If the original text is formatted, all formatting will be removed.
    Text With Structure Inserts text that retains structure, but does not retain basic formatting. For example, you can paste text and retain the structure of paragraphs, lists, and tables, without retaining bold, italics, and other formatting.
    Text With Structure Plus Basic Formatting Inserts both structured and simple HTML-formatted text (e.g., paragraphs and tables, as well as text formatted with the b, i, u, strong, em, hr, abbr, or acronym tag).
    Text With Structure Plus Full Formatting Inserts text that retains all structure, HTML formatting, and CSS styles.
    Clean Up Word Paragraph Spacing Eliminates extra space between paragraphs when you paste your text if you selected Text With Structure or Basic Formatting. The contents of the Word or Excel document appear in your page.

Dreamweaver MX and Vista


very simple actually.

I made a tutorial that shows how to fix it here: http://www.funkytower.com/2008/09/22/dreamweaver-mx-and-vista-fix-insert-tables-best-fix/

I've written a few on this before, but this seems to be the best fix. You more than likely won't get an answer because there are still alot of people using XP and they don't have this issue.

The fix is basically this: going to the program root folder and finding and modifying the function for inserting a table (which is either or both c:\program files\macromedia\dreamweaver mx\configuration\objects\common and/or c:\users\your user name\appdata\macromedia\dreamweaver mx\configuration\objects\common) This file happens to be a simple html file, so it's easy to tweak.

The tutorial's URL I gave above will give you all the details.

Hope that helps!

Unfortunately you cannot download Dreamweaver for free, or else the money grubbing Adobe (previously Macromedia) wouldn't get their precious money. However, there are solutions for other HTML editing programs that ARE free.

Depending on what your looking for or hoping to achieve, you can try this website that lists free HTML Editors:
