Text Tools is distributed as an extension for Adobe Dreamweaver. The only requirement is to have installed Adobe Dreamweaver MX 2004(or later versions CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC ...)
Note: For Windows Vista or Windows Seven versions of Dreamweaver, Dreamweaver 8 or above is required, as there are some compatibility issues between older Dreamweaver versions and these operating systems.
To install Text Tools, follow the steps below:
Launch the Adobe Extension Manager. This application, distributed together with Dreamweaver free of charge, allows the management of extensions in all Adobe tools.
Press "Install" and enter the path to the file CodePeopleTextTools.mxp downloaded from our website.Once the extension is installed, restart Adobe Dreamweaver. "Text Tools" will become available through the menu option "Insert> Text Tools" or via the object bar "Common> Text Tools".
Inserting Text Tools into a website is very easy. The webpage where you wish to insert Text Tools needs to be opened in Adobe Dreamweaver’s editing mode. Once the webpage is loaded, select the option “Text Tools”, either in the menu “Insert” or in the object bar.
The Text Tools option displays a screen that allows to select buttons to be shown in the contextual menu, and allows to add texts as titles for these buttons.
Once you are done setting up Text Tools, click on OK in the Settings screen and that’s all! Text Tools is now inserted into your web page.
Note: In the process of inserting Text Tools into your website, a new folder will be created, named text_tools, which contains all the code necessary for the correct functioning of this extension, as well as its design. You need to publish this folder onto your website.
The settings screen (Fig. 1) shows a set of checkboxes to select the button to be shown in the context menu, as well as a text box associated with each button for title entry.
The title is displayed when you hover the mouse over the button and helps users understand the action it performs.
