View Full Version : Screen resolution help

05-01-2009, 06:35 AM
Dreamweaver cs4 states it requires 1280x800 minimum resolution to install, is this really accurate or is that just the natural minimum size?

In other words can I install it on a computer with a screen smaller?
The computer I'm considering doing this to currently has 1280x768 iirc

Definite knowledge/experience would be better appreciated but feel free to add your opinion too i guess.

Yes Adobe do specify that in their minimum system requirements. This is quite a low res anyway, are you using a laptop?

If you are I would suggest upgrading if you are running at 1024 x 768.

I would have thought you'll still be able to install it and run it though it just some of the panels may have to be reduced in size.

This probably doesn't help butů

I have a large screen but I often reduce the resolution to 1024x768 for demos (makes everything easier to see). It's crowded but it works fine.

oh, BTW, CS4 has a Designer Compact workspace that saves screen real estate on smaller monitors
