Use this topic to set highlighting preferences for templates in Dreamweaver.
You can use the Dreamweaver highlighting preferences to customize the highlight colors for the outlines around the editable and locked regions of a template in Design view. The editable region color appears in the template as well as in documents based on the template.
For information about using the color picker, see Use the color picker.
Nested Region does not have a Show option; its display is controlled by the Editable Region option.
From the Design View, select View > Design View Options > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements.
Highlight colors appear in the document window only when Invisible Elements is enabled and the appropriate options are enabled in Highlighting preferences.
If invisible elements are showing but the highlight colors are not, select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Dreamweaver > Preferences (Macintosh), and then select the Highlighting category. Make sure that the Show option next to the appropriate highlight color is selected. Also make sure that the desired color is visible against the background color of your page.
