Source Viewer

Press Page Down and Page Up to switch slides.

Opera has a built-in source viewer for Web pages. If you need to have a look at the source code of the current Web page, all you have to do is go to View > Source, or press Ctrl+F3, or right-click the page and select "Source".

Applying your changes

The source viewer opens in a new tab on your tab bar, and has syntax highlighting to give you a better overview of the source. If you want to edit the page, you have two options:

  1. Save to cache and see your changes applied immediately by clicking "Reload from cache", or pressing Ctrl+R.
  2. Save to a location of your choice by clicking "Save", or pressing Ctrl+S.

Note that if you are editing a locally saved document "Reload from cache" will permanently save your changes.

If you prefer to use an external program for source viewing and editing, you can specify this in the programs preferences.
