In this lecture, our instructor, Candyce Mairs, explains the differences between the Insert Bar and the Insert Menu. She highlights a few features of the inser bar including the forms and common tabs. She also shows where to find the Insert Bar and the Insert Menu.
The insert bar comes loaded as a panel on the right, or you can move it to the top
The Insert Menu and Insert bar commands do not directly match
Everything in this insert bar is also in the insert menu
If you set a server-side language or open a server-side language page, you will see additional tabs appear within Dreamweaver

I get to that by clicking the word Insert up at the top of the document area, and notice I have Insert image, Insert media, here is the form piece we took a look at, and all the different form pieces.0102
You will find that this insert piece is not always identical to what is in the Insert bar, and it is not always organized exactly the same, as well.0118
Here is an example, notice I do not have a tab up here named HTML, but in my Insert menu, I do have an HTML area and there is quite a few different pieces to it, as you can see.0130
So, this two are not identical areas and I will try and be very specific when I mention which area I want you to go to.0146
Dreamweaver has, usually, a minimum of two ways to do the same task and there are some instances, such as inserting an image. You can insert an image in six different ways.0156
More than likely you will find other ways to do things other than what I am showing you.0170
It is just a bit to extensive to show you all of them at the same time.0175
But I will be specific when I say Insert bar, I will always try and mention the tab to go to, within the Insert bar, and then I will mention the word Insert bar. 0180
Where is if we are going to the Insert menu, There would not be a tab associated with it -- it is just the Dropdown menu, right here.0191
So, those are the Insert menu and the Insert bar within Dreamweaver itself.0199
And if you are not in the Classic workspace, your Insert bar, that is up across the top of your screen, right now, if I move over to the Designer workspace, that Insert bar has been moved.0208
Notice, there is nothing above my document now and these are the different tabs that are available in that Insert bar.0223
I tend to find it is really hard to figure this one out, if it is over here as a panel.0231
Since there are so many panels already, that I usually recommend that when you are getting used to Dreamweaver, switch this to the Classic, which is what we have done and have your Insert bar up across the top.0236
That will just make it so much easier for you to be able to see what is going on and where things are located and you can view them a little bit easier.0250
So, that is the Insert menu and the Insert bar within Dreamweaver.0260
