Hi all,

I used DW3 and 4 in the distant past on a Windows platform and am considering a purchase in the near future. One of the features I really liked about DW was the layout capabilities. For example, I could move stuff around in the WYSIWYG editor and DW would add spacer gifs around the objects in order to "lock" the layout in place. I have not been able to find any other tool that offers this option.

I understand this may not be the best way of doing layout any longer with the trend towards universal CSS layout. I think it will still be helpful, especially because my client is about to hand me their existing site, which was built in DW.

Can anybody tell me if that feature is available in later versions? I think it came out in version 4. Also, are DW3/4 compatible with Windows XP and 7?

I don't think that feature is in there anymore.

But, try with an old version of DW on XP, I think that should work for you.

That feature is history (for good reasons).
