KompoZer User Guide - Section 2
The main window opens. At the top are a number of toolbars. The topmost is the Menu Bar. This carries a number of items (File, Edit etc) used to make selections. The next is the ‘Composition Toolbar’ which carries a number of ‘Buttons’ labelled ‘New’, ‘Open’ etc.
On the Composition toolbar Click the ‘New’ button.
Assuming that the page is stored on your local disk in HTML format:
On the menu Bar click ‘File’ then ‘Open File’. Browse to the file and click ‘Open’.
Your web page – blank or otherwise – is in the large pane in the centre right of the KompoZer application window. Many editing functions are very similar to those in a word processor. The top four toolbars on the KompoZer application window provide a number of editing functions – to see what any do hover the cursor over an item and a hint will appear.
To save a page:
On the Composition toolbar click ‘Save’.
If it was a new document a dialog window will ask you to enter a title for the page. This will appear in the tab at the top of the page display area. NB this is NOT the file name. Click ‘OK’; you will then be offered a normal save window which allows you to browse to a suitable location and name the file. The file extension offered will be HTML.
To see how your page will look in your default browser on the Composition toolbar click ‘Browse’.
The help system should be a first resort in case of need.
