Setting the Default Editors for Dreamweaver

  • You can set the default image editor within Dreamweaver
  • This is defined within the Preferences area
  • Go to Dreamweaver/Edit->preferences depending upon your operating system
  • Select the File Types/Editors category
  • You may have an editor already defined if you have Fireworks or Photoshop on your system
  • These are defined when you install Dreamweaver
  • When I choose the png format, it shows Fireworks as the primary editor
  • If I choose jpg or gif, Photoshop becomes the primary editor
  • These are listed because I have them on my system
  • If you do not have an image editor on your system, this button just says Edit
  • You can choose a different editor for code view
  • Select the image format, and once the editor is selected, click the Make Primary button
  • You can set up your editors as you wish based on those on your specific system within this area
