Why doesn't this work as described with work spaces? work spaces is not industry standard.

This work spaces deal isn't industry standard. I feel like I am being totally set up to fail. SO far I have watched a video where he starts a new work space and suddenly the files he needs are there. Download and open in Dreamweaver would be nice.

SO I make this new work space and named it like he said to .... and now there are no files, and it wont even let me make anything. the link goes to no where.

Workspaces is a Treehouse designed text editor that is integrated into the videos. You are correct, no one outside of Treehouse should or will use workspaces. If you want to use a text editor I would suggest using sublime text, or Atom. To utilize the workspaces like in the videos you need to download the launch workspaces just below the video that you are watching (note some videos were produced prior to workspaces) after you launch it the project files should be there. What is your process for opening workspaces?
