Preview Pane RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am taking a web design class online through my local college. I am running MS Expression web and my system is Windows Vista. My teacher does video demonstration/lessons for us and when she goes to save a "Frameset" in MS Expressions, her "save as" window is split like a preview pane and shows the actual frameset in the save as box. When I go to do "save as" for my frameset all I get is a basic save as box with my folders and no preview of the work I'm saving. I need to know if there is a setting that I need to select for this because it is preventing me from completing my assignments. Nobody I know including my teacher has any suggestions. Any advice is appreciated.

  • If you teacher is teaching you to use frames you need a new teacher

  • Sorry, I can't help because I haven't used framesets in over 8 years. I'm rather inclined to agree with Clark but understand that you don't have a choice with your instructor.

    I would however suggest that if the instructor can't help you he/she should eliminate the requirement that her students use a frameset.

  • Are you 100% sure she is not actually using FrontPage? Ask her the name of the web editor she is using and the version. She is not teaching you how to use Expression Web she is teaching web design two different things.  Her version of web design is about 100 years in web terms out of date too.

    Do yourself a favour and take what she says with a pinch of salt.

    Meanwhile follow the sig lines of the mvps on here and follow the tutorials videos tips tips - mostly all free.

    Take a screen shot of the video in pause mode of where she goes to save a frameset .. and put it on a spare page and post the link ....

    I still think she's using fp.
