Synchronize Dreamweaver settings with Creative Cloud

Store your files, application settings, and site definitions on Creative Cloud. Log on to Creative Cloud and access these files and settings from any machine whenever you need them.

You can set up Dreamweaver to automatically synchronize the settings with the cloud. Or, you can do an on-demand synchronization whenever required using the toast notification (click in the Document toolbar) or the Preferences > Sync Settings dialog box.
