Get HTML Editor to display styles properly in editor window

How can get the editor window to style properly to match the css properties of my web site rather than generic times etc. default styles?

To get custom styles to display in the Styles list, edit the HTML editor instance. On the style tab, select the style sheet you wish to use, then select the classes that should be listed.

For the styles to display properly in the editor window when selected, you must attach the style sheet to the page you have applied HTML editor to.

Go to Window -> Style. In the style window, click the chain icon to link a new style sheet. Select the style sheet and click the OK button to attach it.

on the page that you originally applied the HTML Editor to, in design view select the HTML Editor place holder, In the property inspector, this should trigger an edit button to edit the HTML Editor instance.

Where is this? Is this an older verison of HTML Editor. When I select the edit button, the closest thing I get to a applying a stylesheet is the "Style list preset." I'm sure that's not it.

But if it is, the style (the look) is not being applied to the editing section, even though I see the styles (the look) in the "Style List." Why is this?

(Please note that my website is on a subroot and ckeditor always tries to refer to the root.)

These are 2 separate things.


There is the style list preset which is what you need to use to display the styles in the list of HTML Editor.

however to apply the styles, you also need to attach the style sheet that defines them to the page.

to do this, go to the Window menu of Dreamweaver and select the style window. then follow the rest of the steps listed.

I realized that that is not going to work for me. The sections I'm editing are activated by a class called ("postcontent"). Can I add this class to the editor section so that the editor takes on that specific class's attributes?

You may need to take a look at the layout.

you can add the postcontent class as the body class for the HTML Editor instance.
