I hope you've not forked out for it! But your approach to how you're
using it is absolutely the right one; soon enough you'll start to
understand what it's about, and can perhaps start to use some of its
various features to speed up the stuff you'll already know how to code
The main reason why beginners are generally warned off from
Dreamweaver in particular is that its price is poor value for someone
who isn't a professional; also, it won't make better websites for you
just because it's a professional tool, in the same way that a really
expensive camera won't (by itself) make a beginner photographer into a
great artist. However, it's a pretty reliable product, so you're in
safe hands, and by using it the way you are you'll be getting the most
benefit out of it without suffering most of the pitfalls that plague
other web design programs.
