    Your not being to specific.
    basicly its pretty easy:
    first toolbar you have a choise of actions (Common, text, etc..)
    you chose the action you want (exp. if you want to create a form - choose forms) then the icons (buttons) will change to stuf related to forms (check box, ratio button etc..).
    thats how you desighn and ass stuff to your site.
    the second toolbar:
    the first three buttons let you choose betwen :code view:desighn view: or both (split screen).
    then you have other stuff like a "globe" button that allows you to prview your site in your browser.

    the toolbar under the text/design lets you play around wite what you created (exp. if you wrote "abc" it lets you choose the font size etc. of the text).

    anyting else?

    Dreamweaver isnt really for flash its more for html.

    You paid £300 for a piece of software and you don't know what it does?
    Does this sound a little fishy or what!

    Oops sorry, but at the end of the day its a serious and expensive piece of software, you don't play with it, you work with it.
    If you buy the product you will get all the assistance you require from Macromedia, their suport is second to none.

    If you go onto Kazaa, and search for Dreamweaver Bible...I believe it is a large pdf tutorial.

    nope sure sounds like u don't.

    open the help file look around, practice practice.

    u have to upload both the html file and the swf onto your website.

    :cool:
