New element controls in Dreamweaver CS6
Select any page element in the layout to access the overhead menu. With a click you can perform common layout tasks including hiding, duplicating, and deleting the element, directly within the design surface. The new menu only appears when needed, and helps you design layouts more intuitively within the workspace.
Support for element classes of Dreamweaver CS6
In previous versions of Dreamweaver, the page elements you add are assigned unique IDs. Now you can add grouped page elements that use a single class selector, so that you can ensure design consistency. A single class that controls grouped elements also makes it easier to update layouts.
If desired, you can also insert elements without adding a specific fluid class. As a result of these changes, the source code output by Dreamweaver is shorter and less verbose.
Dreamweaver CS6 update includes new support for absolute positioning, so you can set elements to appear at a specific location in the browser window. Use the new overhead menu to enable the Absolute Position option while an element is selected. Insert AP items inside relatively positioned containers for more control over a layout’s appearance.
Setting up structured HTML5 layout elements
