  1. Add more options for code coloring

    As it is now there isn't a way to color individual tags like the old system could. Example: <a>, @media, <table>, <form>, <img> set to be different colors each. As it stands most of those tags use the same color set. For me it makes it really hard to visually scan the code. I need more visual cues. Also, I've been noticing that selecting code and option dragging to copy/move code isn't working in css files.

    • Node.js

      Having Node.js support would be great for modern web development as it has become more prevalent among server side languages.

      • Batch process modifying document

        Dreamweaver does not currently offer the possibility to batch process documents composing a site.
        Being able to change the DOCTYPE, the encoding or the type of a group of files could be very useful when we take over an old site that we need to update.

          • Better tab functionality: scroll along long list of tabs; drag and drop anywhere (not at end)

            I recommended this before and you followed up but never did anything. I've been using Dreamweaver since version four in the Macromedia days.

            I'd really like for you to implement better functionality when it comes to handling tabs in code view.

            I want to place my mouse cursor on a tab, and then be able to scroll with either the mouse wheel or the magic mouse to move along all the open tabs. Navigation kind of sucks when you have a lot of tabs open, but often this is unavoidable as many of the same changes need to be accomplished…

              • Fix the bugs. Or you gonna lose another customers with a bad review about DW. Its a very frustrating app.

                Fix your bugs first, that the only idea I have right now. Sure you can read yourself all the complaints here. Give me a damn good reason to continuing using it once I finished college.

                • drag and drop not working consistently

                  Working in code view, I find that quite often I am not able to drag or drop selected code to a different place. The cursor changes to the standard cursor icon after I've done the selection and then started to drag, but when I then let go of the mouse button where I want to drop the code, it doesn't drop it, and the code just remains in the original place it was. I've just tried to do it several times to make sure it wasn't me, but NO, it's actually the drag and drop functionality failing. Please fix this…

                  • Please allow the code window to be a draggable, self-contained window (as per the timeline in Adobe Animate).

                    Please allow the code window to be a draggable, self-contained window (as per the timeline in Adobe Animate).

                    This will allow users to have code and design/live preview stretched across two screens instead of just splitting horizontally or vertically on one scree.

                      PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add node.js support. It's popularity is growing vs php, which is phasing out with younger/newer web developers.

                        • Dream Weaver Compatibility With Muse

                          I think that opening a Muse file in Dreamweaver is a cryptic mess and programming Nightmare. If you all could change it so that there is compatibility between the two via modern programming principles such as modular format and clean neat code that is easy to decipher I think it would be the start of a hybrid platform with excellent potential.

                            Node.js is powerful tool for back end. So, to include it is a good idea.

                            • Menus to level the learning curve?

                              I guess it's because I'm just now learning how to use the program, but I fail to see how Dreamweaver is at all user-friendly. I mean look at Photoshop and Illustrator, they both have layers that can be edited individually and can hold multiple elements in each layer. You can even group them together and open the world's easiest menus to navigate to quickly edit the whole group. Even Premier has channels so you can easily stay organized and edit your work. I just don't get why Dreamweaver feels like it was designed to keep new people away. My biggest…

                                Hi I find the new dreamweaver very complicated than the before. Im talking of the 2017 version. Is there a way to simplify the 2017 version more close to what it was 2015?

                                  BUG: My testing server not defined. I have a PHP file open - which is showing the connected files across the bar at the top. I click on the ones that do exist, and it just swaps the view to those files (as expected) and shows me the code of those files. However when I then click on a connected file that doesn't exist - it then attempts to get me to define a Testing server - which I say NO to, and then it swaps my view to a design view instead of the PHP file which has the…

                                  • Why you have touched search / replace function in code ?!

                                    In previous Dw versions there was option to replace specific tags with specific attributes.

                                    How to obtain the same functionality now?
                                    Current search is lame... Really.

                                    • Add view buttons back to the interface

                                      One thing that got removed from the interface that was really nice to have where the Code/Live/Design buttons. I used those a lot in earlier versions and I still need to but now that feature is not as convenient to use and it really slows my work flow down. We also need the content refresh button back. As it is now, the refresh is very unreliable and is is very disruptive to the work flow when the only way you can get the content to refresh is to close and reopen the file you are working on.
