Create a Macaw account
The Macaw installation procedure is reduced to a simple drag and drop to the Applications folder, but to actually use the application, you must first register for a Macaw account. Note that you can do that free of charge and opt to enable the trial period to check on your own what the app has to offer.
Simple web design tools
The Macaw main window resembles most image editors out there: the main area is reserved for the project canvas, while the panels placed on the left or on the right sides provide access to the editing tools.
Macaw includes tools for creating buttons and adding text content, while the Inspector tab allows you to personalize any of the objects included in your project: you can set breakpoints and adjust dimensions, customize the font design and the background color, add borders, insert hyperlinks, and more.
In addition, Macaw allows you to set up static, absolute, or fixed positioning rules. To take things further, you can apply the same global style on multiple elements in a certain area.
Publish your website
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can choose to quickly export your website: use the Command + P hotkey or navigate to the File menu to trigger the process. The same menu provides access to the Export Settings panel where you can easily adjust details about the project’s head and tail, used styles, and more.
Intuitive and user friendly web designing tool
Macaw is proposing a simple solution for quickly creating beautiful websites without having to deal with writing the source code. Due to its organized user interface and natural workflow, you will find your way around the application in no time.
