DW 8  (XP)  Two right click wishes:
 - View server copy of file in browser;  
 - Create copy of http://  URL in paste buffer for file on server

Does there exist in DW or as a command extension a script to do the following (often i have occasion to want an easy "shortcut" way to get at this)

1. Currently there exist many ways to view a (local html) file in a browser(even a choice of browsers);  i would like to be able int he Site Panel (file manager) to have the right-click context menu to offer the choice of viewing in a browser the remote (or remote equivalent) of the right-clicked file.  This saves (a) getting a browser application launched/restored, and (b) navigating to the specific sub directory and file.

2. In firefox and IE, there exist right click  Copy Link Location or Copy Shortcut that saves the URL in the paste buffer.  I'd like to have this in DW, such that i can right click  SAVE URL for the remote (or equivalent local) file, to achieve an absolute URL.

3. (While i have you on the line, one other wish: )
 Is there a way (or an extension) to right-click WHO-POINTS-TO-ME (from within the entire local site).  i.e., show file dependencies for either images or links to html files, etc.   This would be handy especially to quickly see if a file is unused or who depends on it.   I'm not needing a broken link check, but since DW has access to all the links, why not provide access to this backlink info.

thanks!

Hi willsherwood,

I'm not aware of any extensions that currently provides the functions you want.   I would check the Exchange and see if you can find it.

What you really should do is download the "Dreamweaver 8 and MX 2004 Platform SDK, V1.1.0" extension from the exchange and get to work.

If you develop the above, I would buy it...
