Adobe GoLive Tip of the Week Generate Page Thumbnails in Adobe GoLive 6

Edited by Derrick Story

If you're using the site management tool in GoLive 6, the File Inspector includes a Content tab, which is a very easy way to preview graphics and Web pages without opening them.

Sometimes, such as after importing Web pages created in another application, pages don't display the thumbnail graphic in the Inspector. There are two ways to generate the missing thumbnails:

  • First, open your site file that you created in Tip 3. Look for the .site extension.
  • To generate a thumbnail for a single page, select the page in the Files tab of the Site window and click the refresh button in the Content section of the File Inspector.
  • To generate thumbnails for every page in the site, select the Site window, hold Command-Option(Mac) or Control-Alt(Win), and choose Site -->Create Thumbnails.

When you import Web pages from other applications, they may not display thumbnail previews in the Site Inspector.

Highlight the file you want to create a thumbnail for and click on the "refresh arrows" in the lower right corner of the Content tab.

Adobe GoLive 6 will create a page or image thumbnail for you and display it in the window.
