Hi all

Just wondering if anyone could help me in finding a Dreamweaver tutorial fro the Mac. I just downloaded a copy of dreamweaver for 30days and I don't know where to start. I want to see if I can get an interactive tutorial so I can teach myself the program. If anyone can help that would be great... :D

Thanks Kate for your help in finding this site. The only problem is that I have to subscribe to use the tutorials. I was hoping I could get a tutorial for free somewhere. But it looks like I'm going to have to buy one.

Hya angel,
Because I can't find any as a member at Macromdedia I have asked where on earth are the free tuts for the Mac...lmaoooo

Someone should answer. I will know as soon as they do as I subscribed to get replies to my mailbox.

Fingers and toes crossed

Domedia,
Why is there sometimes an 'edit' and sometimes not...?

:(

Angel,
This has come back from Macromedia today:

Is there something specific that your colleague needs to know? With a few
minor differences, DW on Mac works identically to DW on Windows.

The biggest difference between Macs and Windows from a web development
standpoint is the web server and choices of databases, and that's not so
much a Dreamweaver thing as it is a platform knowledge thing.

Best regards,
Chris

About Edit:
For a certain amount of time (30 minutes I think) you can edit your post if you wrote something wrong/spelling etc.

mac/pc dw: as macromedia said, the software is the same for pc and mac so there's no seperate mac/pc tutorials, all tutorials are the same :)

I asked If my video links will be ok for you angel:

Should be. All the menus and what-not are pretty much identical between
them. The biggest difference is that the Windows version has two workspace
options (designer and coder), and they're all combined in a single window.
The Macintosh uses multiple windows in the typical Mac UI style and doesn't
currently do tabbed documents inside a singe window (but is expected to in
the DW8 release).

Otherwise they should be the same. The built-in tutorials that ship with
the product are very comprehensive. Check out the help files for more
detail :-)

Best regards,
Chris

Wow heaps of replies today thanks... :D

First, the reason I asked if there was a tutorial for the Mac that's different than the PC is because when I've tried downloading the DW tutorial I've downloaded a zip file then when I expand it its an .exe file I can't view this on the Mac. If anyone can email me a tutorial already unzipped that would be fantastic.

So Kate your saying I should be able to go to your site and use your video link
CLICK HERE FOR TUTORIALS IN DW. Well when I go to your home page I get lost. I can't find where I'm supposed to be going to view your link.

:D

First of all only one forum to see from a 'guest' point of view. the small text under the large text is the tutorial video link in my sig. Chris at Macromedia convinced me that the tuts will not be a lot different reason why not many links for the Mac.
The link should take you to a signup page when you click 'login or register' from the top of the page. then make your way to:

http://swishmagic.com/dreamweaverforums/in...hp?showforum=54 ('http://swishmagic.com/dreamweaverforums/index.php?showforum=54') where the links to tuts are. more will be added as I find them. if you don't feel up to registering here is a PDF. for this go to Adobe and dl Acrobat Reader ('http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html') to view the file. you may already have the file If you bought by post your DreamweaverMX.

Angel it won't allow a PDF so I can mail it for you, send me a blank mail via the system.
