This tutorial walks you through importing presets, using our Preset Manager. We focus on importing a Data Bridge preset, but this same concept can be used for all WebAssist extensions.

  1. Dreamweaver CS3 or later
  2. Data Bridge installed and activated in Dreamweaver
  3. A preset for use with Data Bridge. You can download the

arrow downGet the presets ready

First thing in the very short list of things to do for importing, is to get the preset files ready for importing.

  1. Download the Tutorial Product Presets zip file
  2. Place the zip in an easily accessible directory

That's it.

arrow downImport the presets

Now we just need to open the Preset Manager for Data Bridge and import the heck out of these these presets, and we're done!

  1. Click WebAssist > Preset Manager
  2. From the Product drop down, select the product you want to import the preset for
  3. In this case we're going to choose Data Bridge - Preset, but this will change if you are using a preset for another product
  4. Click the Import button
  5. Browse to the preset file ( it will be a .zip file )
  6. Click Open

As long as the correct product was selected for the preset you imported, your preset will show up in your preset list. If you selected the wrong product, an error message will appear telling you.

arrow downWhat to do next...

I'd hug you if you weren't all the way over wherever you are. Next time you're closer to wherever it is I am, I'll give you a hug.

Now you need to start importing all kinds of things. And exporting. Look at you... you're on your way to becoming a master presetter.
