One of our instructors and well known author David Powers, has just released his latest book “Adobe DreamWeaver CS5 with PHP” published by Adobe Press. The book is currently a very affordable £18.50 on Amazon, and is David’s 8th book on the subject of Web Development. David has had some great reviews on his previous books published by Friends of Ed and we’re sure this new one from Adobe Press will prove to be just as popular. He probably knows more about DreamWeaver than almost anybody we’ve ever met, and that’s saying something. Congratulations David.
I’ve always favoured manual recording over automatic recording when capturing software-based tasks in Adobe Captivate. It gives me more control and allows me to be selective about which screens I capture.
When I upgraded to Captivate 5.0, I found that I had to change the way in which I do my manual recordings. This is because Captivate 5.0 captures the mouse position during manual recording rather differently than previous versions: when you press the screen is capured, and the current position of the mouse pointer is used as the destination for the movement of the mouse on that slide. In Captivate 4.0 and earlier, the position of the mouse when you pressed was used as the origin for the movement of the mouse on that slide.
If you are using products such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, DreamWeaver, PHP or Blender then there are a number of new groups now available on LinkedIn which you might want to join.
For those who haven’t heard of LinkedIn before it is a business networking site with over 70 million members of all levels, and can be a great place to network, find new opportunities and learn from the community (plus it’s free).
The groups which have just gone live are listed below:
