Dreamweaver 8: Better CSS Rendering

I recently installed Dreamweaver 8. I haven’t even begun to fully delve into the changes and improvements, but right away I knew that I was going to love it when I noticed how much better the “Design View” rendering of CSS-based layouts was. No more floating elements were forced to the bottom of the page; the page looked just as it would in any popular browser. With the ability to outline divs in dotted lines or to even color them with different background colors, working with CSS-based layouts has been made easier than ever.
Take a look! Here’s a CSS-based layout page (no tables used) in Dreamweaver’s Design View:
The visual aids button helps you to quickly toggle on or off the dotted borders, called CSS Layout Outlines:
You can also display the CSS Layout Backgrounds, which hides any backgrounds you’ve defined and gives each div its own background color. It’s very useful for figuring out what’s going on with your CSS layout.
I’ll be posting more Dreamweaver 8 tips and tricks as I discover or use them!

Users are no longer able to store meeting recordings in #Stream (Classic). They will be stored in #SharePoint moving forward.

Awesome, right?

Now we can take advantage of the power of #SharePoint file storage with video! But there are some big gotchas.


Trying to decide between #PowerAutomate and #LogicApps?

It depends what you’re automating, and for who.

The Cliff Notes answer: #PowerAutomate is great for you personally. #LogicApps is best for automating org-wide.

Stream's changing because no #M365 app is an island.

Islands in the #Stream
That is what they are
Recordings not Teams
or SharePoint, that’s wrong.
Sail away with Stream to a better world
we can rely on integration, ah-ha
from one app to another, ah-ha
