RAGE Software’s WebDesign 3.5: Click & Edit Inspector Feature

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

With the recent release of WebDesign 3.5, we are extremely excited to spread the word of WebDesign’s new Inspector feature, which allows users to click on areas of their site in the live side-by-side preview window, and automatically be taken to that part of the site in the code. The following video will demonstrate this great new feature, and show exactly how it works.

Video Transcript:

WebDesign now offers the all new inspector feature, which is a click and edit option using the live side-by-side previews. Here’s how it works.

Simply move your mouse cursor over certain areas of your site on the live preview. You will see how a red rectangle will appear over certain elements on the page.

If you click on any of these elements, it will highlight the code on the left side, making it very easy for you to edit each part of your website.

This feature makes it even easier for any user who is not all that familiar with HTML, but wants to quickly and easily edit a template.

WebDesign is now an even better option for users looking for alternate website builder to iWeb.

You can also click your navigation links, to be taken to the code for your navigation menus. If you want to change the text in the links on each page, then you can edit that right from within your page. BUT, if you want your navigation menu to appear the same on each of your pages, you will still need to edit the actual include file itself.

To do this, just open up the site manager, and open the include file that you want to edit, and make your changes there.

Lots of other bug fixes and improvements can be found in this update. It is free for registered 3.x users.

WebDesign 3.0 Released: Makes it Easy To Build Websites

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

We are extremely proud to introduce WebDesign 3.0, a major update to our web authoring and html editing software for Mac OS X. In development for a few years now, WebDesign 3.0 includes many new features including a redesigned user interface, over 20 professionally designed website templates, live side-by-side website previews and much more.

This release of WebDesign is the biggest yet. We focused all of our attention on making it easy for beginners to design their first website while giving power users the features they need to create and edit their existing sites. By providing website templates, users now have a starting point to base their websites off of so they can get their site up as quickly as possible. The live side-by-side web page previews show you exactly what your website will look like as you build it.

We wanted to create a tool that provided a great transition between a web builder like iWeb or RapidWeaver to an HTML editor that didn’t require you to be a coding expert. All the essential tools are now available to you to create that professional, fast loading website.

It also provides better support for double byte languages such as Japanese and Chinese, among many other improvements.

We have also released a beta version of MapDesign which adds support for transparent PNGs. Now you can create beautiful, interactive image maps with transparent images.
