HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Organize with Unordered Lists

I cannot get a workspace set up properly.

My workspace is not like the one in the video. i can create one but it is not attached to the video. I am stuck and very frustrated.. My screen is not separated into a file section and work area with file options across the top. I have tried to create one but it comes up as a separate window. I have restarted the course several times and get the same result. Help

Hey Lee,

When using workspaces with the Videos, it will come up as a separate window. If you don't have multi-screen capability and/or the new OSX split screen, you can just size the windows so you can flip between them easily.

When you create a workspace from the sidebar, it will not be attached to the video. If you want it attached to the course you are currently on (recommended), click on the Workspace option on the video window.

Hope that helps. Keep Coding! :)

Thanks a ton. I think I was trying to do something not built in!
