Checking page size and download time
In Dreamweaver, we are used to these facts being at the bottom of the document window. In GoLive, go to Special > Document Statistics to see the byte count for html, images, total for the page, and estimated download times at various speeds.
Site contents updates
In Dreamweaver, any images added to the site automatically show up in the site window, but in GoLive you will need to right click on an empty spot in the window and choose Refresh View to see the additional files.
Saving Site changes
When you save the page you are working on, make sure to save the site too. It is not automatically saved as we are used to with Dreamweaver, and if you do close without saving you will probably have to refresh the view to see all files in the site. if there is an asterisk in the site title bar, then the site has had additions and needs to be saved.
How do I see image size?
In Dreamweaver the image size in kb is right on the property bar. In GoLive it isn't as obvious. I tried right clicking on the image in my document, I looked over the inspector, and the toolbar, and the document window. Finally I found it by accident: to see the kb size of an image you have to select the file in the site window, and then the inspector will display kb size of the image.
Adding images from the clipboard your web page
One slick trick I like is the ability in GoLive to add images to a web page directly from the clipboard. I write a lot of tutorials and classes, and that means lots of screenshots. In GoLive, place the cursor where you want the image to appear, simply use the normal ctrl+V paste keyboard shortcut, and the image is pasted into GoLive. But it gets better! When you paste the image into your GoLive web page, the Save for Web dialog opens allowing you to use the same great Save for Web feature you are familiar with from Photoshop, Image Ready, Elements, or Illustrator, and save the image directly into your site folder! This is a real timesaver!
How do I install extensions?
GoLive uses extensions to give added functionality just like Dreamweaver, but without a command menu, how do you install them? Unzip or unstuff the extension and copy the entire folder to the GoLive Modules\Extend Scripts folder.
Miss your Dreamweaver keyboard shortcuts?
I find GoLive's keyboard shortcuts for paragraph formatting difficult to use (ALT +SHIFT + CTRL + 0 for paragraph, ALT +SHIFT + CTRL + 1 for Heading 1). If you miss Dreamweaver's easier keyboard shortcuts for applying paragraph formatting (ctrl+0 for paragraph, ctrl+1 for Heading 1, ctrl + 2 for Heading 2, and so on), go to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts. Click New Set and name it Dreamweaver. Change the shortcuts to suit the way you work by selecting the shortcut you want to change, and then typing a new one. GoLive will tell you if that shortcut is already in use, and by what. If it is not in use, click the Assign button; if it is in use and you want to use your shortcut rather than GoLive's. click Replace. Click OK when done to return to the work area with your brand new set of custom shortcut keys!
