View Full Version : Help menu in DW8

02-15-2006, 04:35 AM
Hi all--
Has anyone else had a problem viewing the help menu in DW8?

When I click "Dreamweaver 8 Help menu" the left side window is readable but the right side window text is very small and almost unreadable. I've tried changing my monitors resolution and no help.

Any sugggestions? I would really like to use DW8's help section without going blind :shock:

Yeah it is a pain when you have your cursor over something and it opens that tip panel.
The best way is to save your page and close it (just your document and not DW) and press F1.

i have seen this before but not with DW

The help is html and it looks like the style sheet in the chm could be corupt

I just checked out the Macromedia site and to fix it:

Go to IE then go to view>text size and change the font text size (in my case it was at smallest I changed it to medium).

It's because DW displays the help files as HTML and it uses your IE settings to tell it how to display them.

Problem solved. :D
