The Macaw Workspace

If you’d like to follow along as we take a tour, you can download a 14-day free trial. With Macaw installed and running, and you logged in, let’s jump in and take a look at a typical workflow.

When Macaw opens, a blank page is created. The Macaw workspace is similar to other applications in that it has a toolbar on the left, panels on the right (Inspector, Outline, and Library), and the page area in the middle.

In Macaw, you work with a project file (.mcw) that contains the design content for your site (see Figure 2 that shows how to save a .mcw file). Like working in Adobe InDesign, the images are kept in a separate folder.
