weaving css faster

Dreamweaver is the fastest editor I have ever used. We can make it more faster by doing some small changes.

ie: when we want to add a background to an element, once we hit the ‘b’ key we get,

the first suggestion is backface-visibility  which we use very rarely. In order to get the background property we have to either hit down arrow or type more letters (backg). To overcome this problem and get background as the first hint when I hit ‘b’ key I removed backface-visibility from code hints. All you have to do is,

  1. Open dreamweaver’s CSS3_hints.html file. In my system it’s at C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5\configuration\CodeHints
  2. Search for ‘backface-visibility‘ and comment out the code blocks associated to it.
  3. Restart Dreamweaver
  4. profit

Next time we hit the ‘b’ key the code hint looks like this

Can do the same thing for ‘widows’ property. It’s in CodeHints.xml file.
