Not Solved Editing template files using DW instead of online?

Not Solved
Pardon my question but I have looked all over the Wiki for a solution.
What I would like to do is edit the files for my theme using my html program (Dreamweaver) rather than editing thru the admin panel.

Also where are the installed theme files contained?
I found the CSS file and image directories but where would the theme template files be located?

Thanks and sorry for my newbie dumb question Blush

Not currently possible all the tempelates are stored in the database and not actual files that can be downloaded and edited.

Well it is still possible just not like phpbb in doing so.

It just takes alot of copy and pasting. Or downloading the xml file.

For example go to global.css.

Paste it on a new txt file saving it as global.css.

From there you can edit it with any editor of your choose.

There is no point on doing that as he would like to use Dreamweaver probably for the live preview. Otherwise he could just use Notepad.

Maybe so,but some people just use it for the nice editor.

If he wants a live preview he could just use firebug.

Dreamweaver is the worst editor ever. If you need a editor and don't want a live preview use a small editor such as Notepad++ which doesn't lag, doesn't come with 129391293 features, and takes forever to load Toungue. I mean if you don't need the live preview whats the point of using Dreamweaver.
