Good day all,

I work on a website that has language files stored in different directories and subdirectories. When I update one language, I need to update the same in various other languages. This means having to search for the files in different directories which takes time.

Does anyone know of a way to define a set of files which can then all be opened with the click of a button?

I need to do many things at the same time so constantly open and close the files rather than having 20+ files open which becomes a bit unwieldy in the tabs.

Thanks to anyone with some suggestions. I am running DW CS3 by the way.

Richard

Hi sagonaholdings,

You might be able to do this by writing your own extension for DW, but the macros were removed in DW 8 (IIRC).

>> This means having to search for the files in different directories which takes time.

Yeah, it does take a little time.  You can use the internal Find function to get a list of files in the results panel and then shift-click to select and open them all at once that way.

The other way to do this is to switch away from static files and use a database to display the text and a simple script to detect the language preference...

Thank you for your input. I definitely need to test the options you suggested. Problem is that I am not too familiar with creating extensions in DW but with a little trial and error I am sure I will find something.
Thanks again!
