Today we’re excited to announce the 2014 release of Dreamweaver CC! This latest version will improve your productivity and streamline your web design process, making it quicker for you to build and edit your web and mobile projects.
Can’t wait to get your hands on it? Download Dreamweaver CC now.
Here’s what you’ll find in this release:
New Live View editing
This update adds new editing features within Live View, which was upgraded to use a brand new rendering engine last August. You can now visually edit your page and preview changes without switching between display modes and constantly refreshing.
Need to change an image? Click on it and swap it out. Need to edit text? Change it without having to scrub through your markup. With Element Display, you have quick access to CSS selectors, tag information, image editing properties and text editing and formatting, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time with development tools to decipher how and where CSS properties are applied. Now, you can click on HTML elements inside of Live View and immediately see the element tag, applied CSS selectors, so you can quickly add or delete selectors found in your stylesheets. You now also have access to the CSS Designer, Insert Panel, Properties Inspector and other panels to quickly build and edit your page within Live View. Learn more about how to use Live View features here.
Element Quick View
Navigating HTML markup can be tedious since all your tags get lost between the content that fills your page. With the Element Quick View you get access to a display list of all the elements within your DOM (kind of like an elements panel for HTML) without having to sift through the noise of additional markup. Inside of this view you can view applied CSS selectors and rearrange, duplicate or delete elements. Your selection is also highlighted in both Code and Live views to see where the element lives on your page. Learn more about how to use the Element Quick View here.
Copy > paste > edit is an old and cumbersome method of writing CSS that’s error prone. Now in the CSS Designer you can right click on a selector to copy all of the applied styles and paste them onto a new selector. You can filter what you copy by layout, text, border, background or animation styles and even navigate to live websites within Dreamweaver and grab styles from there. It’s the little things that add up.
There’s more you’ll find in this release, including new video tutorials to help you get started, site management certificate support and other improvements and bug fixes. See a full list of what’s new here.
Grab the latest version Dreamweaver CC and see for yourself how these features work and can improve your productivity. This release was made possible by feedback from users like you – you can now provide your feedback directly within Dreamweaver CC(Help>Submit Bug/Feature Request) or through our community forums. Thank you for your continued support and help.
Without proper care, storm sewer systems can carry hazardous materials into public water supplies. That’s why the Broome-Tioga Stormwater Coalition hired Hue to design a multimedia campaign to educate residents in the Southern Tier of New York state about clean water habits.
Using Adobe Creative Cloud, the full-service agency developed a fully responsive website, print materials, and a television ad that ran during the Super Bowl for the Water From Rain campaign. To communicate about reducing pollution in stormflows, Hue relied on the integrated, streamlined workflows in Adobe Creative Cloud.
Built with Adobe Dreamweaver CC, the website is fully responsive and displays smoothly on tablets and mobile devices. “I like to approach websites from a design perspective, rather than focusing just on technical specs,” says Peter Hoffman, web director at Hue. “Adobe Dreamweaver CC enables me to feel extremely confident in how my designs are implemented.”
To successfully translate his designs to multiple devices, Hoffman relied on Adobe Edge Inspect CC. By checking the website flow on different screens, he was able to make sure everyone viewing the site would have the same experience, regardless of device.
Through his Creative Cloud membership, Hoffman also gained access to Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Edge Reflow CC and enjoyed experimenting with the integration between the two apps. “Taking static ideas to the web can be challenging, but the integration between Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Edge Reflow CC made it easy to generate responsive web assets,” says Hoffman.
Since the television commercial ran during the Super Bowl, visits to the campaign’s website have averaged 3 minutes, 42 seconds, with a bounce rate of only 1.8%. http://adobe.ly/1ilFdfC

Recently Livescribe released a new version of their Livescribe+ app to send notes easily to OneNote. Now you can use pen and paper to take notes, and access that information on any device with OneNote.
The Livescribe 3 is a smartpen that connects to an iPhone or iPad to transfer handwritten notes to your mobile device. You can go into a lecture or meeting with your smartpen and a Livescribe notebook, store every note, drawing or idea, and capture everything that you might need in the future.
Writing with pen on paper is a very quick and natural way to capture information, something people have been doing for centuries. For OneNote fans, this new collaboration with Livescribe makes that information more valuable and more useful by integrating it into OneNote notebooks.
If you have a Livescribe 3 smartpen, you can get started by tapping on the Share icon inside Livescribe+. You’ll see a Send dialog with the OneNote icon – tap on that to log into OneNote with your Microsoft account. The default behavior under Send Options is to upload each page you select in Livescribe+ as an individual PNG file which will get imported directly into your OneNote notebook. You can also change it so all the pages you select will be uploaded as a PDF attachment.
Hope you enjoy this new way to write your notes down, and store and organize them in OneNote. For more How To info and to purchase a Livescribe smartpen, please visit www.livescribe.com/blog/noteworthy
News360 is a free app for your iOS, Android or Windows device that helps you find the best stories around the web without being overwhelmed. With more than 4M users and content from over 100,000 sources, it’s a great way to keep up with the news. Over the last two months, News360 worked together with the OneNote team to enable readers to save news stories discovered in the app directly into their OneNote account.
News360 is based on the understanding that every person has a different set of nuanced and ever-changing interests. For example, take two people who are interested in technology – one is a web developer who wants to learn the latest html5 tricks and the other is a fitness enthusiast who needs the latest scoop on wearable gadgets. A single “Technology” feed wouldn’t cut it for those two, so News360 analyzes both users’ social accounts and reading habits to quickly adapt to their differing needs and give each of them a uniquely tailored newsfeed.
The same works for all of your other interests too – News360 creates a single “Home” feed that aggregates all the content you like, from politics and technology to sports and hobbies, so that you don’t have to jump between different sources and topics, and the more you use it – the smarter it gets.
With the new update, it is now super-easy to save the great content you find in News360 to OneNote to read later on another device, or for future reference. Just tap share in any of the News360 mobile apps, and select OneNote – this will export the full article into your OneNote Quick Notes section.
Download News360 for your device or try it out on the web at http://news360.com/
Steve Feldstein is the Director of Laser and Scanner Products at Brother International.
Brother International Corporation recently updated their ADS-1500W Wireless Enabled Compact Scanner to support direct scanning to OneNote, which can help virtually everyone in your office convert paper documents into electronic files and make them available for online sharing and collaboration. Once scanned into OneNote, files can be organized in notebooks and conveniently accessed by authorized users through Windows, Windows Phone devices, iOS devices (iPhone and iPad), Android devices, and through a browser with OneNote Online.
Scanning documents into OneNote is an ideal way to share information between multiple branches of the same office, a mobile sales team or other professionals deployed in the field – even members of a global workforce! OneNote enables genuine collaboration by giving multiple users the ability to modify and edit documents with their notes, thoughts, pictures, tables and more. Used in conjunction with the Brother ADS-1500W, OneNote can create an open, collaborative working environment where hardcopy documents are transformed into digital files where ideas are exchanged freely, and not limited by location, time differences, or operating systems.
In addition to direct-to-OneNote scanning, the Brother ADS-1500W packs the flexibility of wireless networking, cloud connectivity, and an intuitive color touchscreen display into a compact, desk-friendly size. The ADS-1500W can also scan directly to OneDrive and SharePoint, making it an ideal compact scanner for businesses that use the Microsoft portfolio.
One of our goals is to make it easy to get content into OneNote, no matter where you are or what app you’re using. firstname.lastname@example.org is a big step towards that goal. Now, you can use any ‘Email this’ button to send content to OneNote.
Email to OneNote is a great way to forward receipts, travel itineraries or documents that you want to keep track of from your mailbox. If you’re on the run and want to send yourself a quick to do, it’s hard to get faster than writing up a quick mail. Or, if you’re in an app, and want to remember what you’re seeing, you can do so quickly by sharing via email.
Try it out now
To get set up just visit the email settings page and select the addresses from which you would like OneNote to accept emailed content. You can also add any email addresses that are not already associated with your Microsoft account by using the link at the bottom of the settings page. If you don’t remember any of that, just send an email to email@example.com and we will email back with instructions.
Now you’re ready to email content to OneNote quickly and easily! Please let us know in the comments if you have any feedback, we would love to hear from you.
When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.
Today we’re excited to complete that story with three major developments:
- OneNote for Mac is available for the first time and for free. With this, OneNote is now available on all the platforms you care about: PC, Mac, Windows tablets, Windows Phone, iPad, iPhone, Android and the Web. And they’re always in sync.
- OneNote is now free everywhere including the Windows PC desktop and Mac version because we want everyone to be able to use it. Premium features are available to paid customers.
- The OneNote service now provides a cloud API enabling any application to connect to it. This makes it easier than ever to capture ideas, information and inspirations from more applications and more places straight into OneNote, including:
- OneNote Clipper for saving web pages to OneNote
- firstname.lastname@example.org for emailing notes to OneNote
- Office Lens for capturing documents and whiteboards with your Windows Phone
- Sending blog and news articles to OneNote from Feedly, News360 and Weave
- Easy document scanning to OneNote with Brother, Doxie Go, Epson, and Neat
- Writing notes with pen and paper and sending them to OneNote with Livescribe
- Mobile document scanning to OneNote with Genius Scan and JotNot
- Having your physical notebooks scanned into OneNote with Mod Notebooks
- Connecting your world to OneNote with IFTTT
Go to www.onenote.com to get OneNote for free for your Mac, PC or other devices, and try out the new OneNote service connected experiences.
OneNote for Mac
Mac users have made it loud and clear that you want the first class note-taking experience of OneNote on your Macs. Actually… really, really clear. We got LOTS of direct mails, forum posts, and tweets like these:
- “Now, @msonenote needs to release the OS X version of OneNote and my life will be complete :)”
- “Dear Microsoft – the new web OneNote is nice. A native Mac version would be better. By this afternoon please, I have work to do.”
- “I own a Mac and I LOVE OneNote so for me having OneNote on my Mac would just rock my world.”
- “I desperately want OneNote on my new Mac… I use OneNote on VMware Fusion… There is nothing remotely like it for Mac… I have just spent a week looking for anything that comes close.”
Okay, we got the message. Rocking worlds and making lives complete is a pretty high bar, and we’re sorry we missed your afternoon deadline, but we’ve been working away, and we’re excited to bring it to you today. And if you’re a Mac user who didn’t already know about OneNote, check out Introducing OneNote for Mac or just get started now by downloading OneNote for Mac from the Mac App Store to see what your fellow Mac users are so excited about.

Today we announced three major OneNote developments, including Office Lens, a neat new app in the Windows Phone Store.
Office Lens is an app that’s like having a scanner in your pocket. You can use it to take pictures of things like business cards, restaurant menus, notes on whiteboards or blackboards — anything you want to keep on hand. But unlike loose sticky notes, business cards or sketches on lunch napkins, you won’t lose track of your ideas when you capture them with Office Lens. Even things like children’s artwork is fair game. Snap a picture of that one-of-a-kind card your child made and it’ll be at your fingertips whenever you’d like to see it.
Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures readable. Weird angles are straightened, shadows are cleaned up and the images are automatically synced to OneNote, so you can get to them on all your devices.
When your picture includes printed text, such as a poster or business card, OneNote on a PC can recognize the text with optical character recognition (OCR) so you can search for words in the image — and you can edit the text, or copy and paste it into apps like email and documents.
Office Lens has three modes, or settings, that help make your captures look their best:
- With Whiteboard mode, glare and shadows disappear.
- With Document mode, text is clear and easy to read.
- With Photo mode, you can take pictures of people and scenery.
If you already have pictures on your phone, you can edit them in Office Lens and clean them up too. See how it works in the video below.
Office Lens is free in the Windows Phone Store. Install it and try it out today.
Please let us know in the comments or in the app store if you have any feedback. We would love to hear from you.
