  1. Enable to use extensions of Brackets

    There are a number of useful extensions for Brackets available like CSS Next, PostCSS, Gulp, Autoprefixer, Snippets and others. We wish Dreamweaver could use these extensions the same as Brackets. However, I assume it's difficult to evaluate by Development team all of extensions are working in Dreamweaver. They have to define that the installed extension working within the recommended working conditions. Otherwise, it would be available like inter-process communication mechanisms, it aims to make it possible to run Brackets extensions in Dreamweaver. eg.Internally launching Brackets, round-trip editing and others.

    Reason:
    a. I don't think Dreamweaver should fully support user's extension.…

    • Apply Source Formatting destroys certain code

      Since the DW 2019 update (18.2, build 10165), around October 25th, 2018, there are some serious glitches happening with the Edit -> Code -> Apply Source Formatting feature.

      1) Sometimes an array spacing will put the space between the quotation marks and the variable name, rather than between the bracket and the quote, which does not work.
      Incorrect: $_POST[" variable "]
      Correct: $_POST[ "variable" ]

      2. The tool has combined several lines, and if the start of one of those lines is a comment mark, the active code will become inactive.
      ex: #MEMO: This generates the navigation bar with drop-down…

      • 3 things that would make Search and Replace much more comfortable to use

        I can see 3 changes that would make this feature much more comforatble to use.

        1. Combine "Search" and "Search and replace" into one single tool. Searching and replacing should be available after Ctrl+F only. (See search feature in Atom). It would be much more useful to use only one keyboard shortcut instead of two.

        2. When replacing every occurence of a phrase screen position and cursor should stay in the same place instead going to top of the screen. It is so anoying to scroll every time to get to the previous edited part of the code. (See search…

        • Live Spell Checking

          Spell Check exists, but it is not automatic like other Adobe products. Obviously it would have to be able to discern code vs. actual text, but I have faith that the Adobe team can make it a reality!

          • It might be time for Dreamweaver to become Open Source

            There a lot of people in the community who feel like Dreamweaver has taken a turn for the worse in its CC version. Release CS6 or 2015 as an open source and let the community fix all the long term issues that seem to be getting pushed to the back burner or not considered to be worth fixing in CC. Just a thought.

            • Improve font management and update default font for Japanese

              Unfortunately Dreamweaver doesn't allow to set own made font list as we like and "font management" in Dreamweaver makes a little sense. Thus we have to type the font-family manually in code whenever we create a Japanese font set for the site. It is useless.

              Reason:
              Font family presets do not match recent Japanese OS font environments. Many Japanese users feel that they are inconvenient. At least I hope we could edit the list by typing within font manager.

              (Translated to Japanese)
              あいにくDreamweaverは独自のフォントリストを自由に作成することができません。一応「フォントを管理」で作成できるようになってはいますが、まったく使われていないのが実情です。コードで毎回手入力する必要があるのは、本当に無駄な作業です。

              理由:
              Dreamweaverの初期フォントは現状の日本語環境とは懸け離れたものになってしまっていて、多くのユーザーが不便に思っています。最低でも、フォントリストを自由に手入力して登録できるようにして欲しいです。

              • shortcut to switch between source view and css

                It would be great to switch from html coding to css coding with a shortcut instead of having to click on the text areas above every time - it only makes sense as we go back and forth constantly!

                • Add PHP ADODB Server Behaviors - AKA PHAKT

                  Add back in server behaviours and use as a starting point the old Interakt PHAKT extension which utilises PHP ADODB Abstraction Layer http://adodb.org/dokuwiki/doku.php meaning compatibility with a large list of database types. It is maintained and works with PHP 7.2 and the library can be easily updated as and when new versions are released. For some reason the PHAKT extension was overlooked and people continued to use the MySQL extenion. You could also dig out the old Kollection extension that worked in conjunction with PHAKT and update the PEAR libraries and other files in the includes folder for compatibility with…

                  • Bookmark lines in code

                    Bookmark lines in code is a simple feature, that is available in *all* good text/code editors. Simple example of Notepad++ is attached.
                    May be there are some workarounds for those, who use Brackets, but I don’t use Brackets and don’t want to waste time trying to find the feature that may not work: https://dreamweaver.uservoice.com/forums/379458-adobe-dreamweaver-ideas/suggestions/15645789-bookmark-line-numbers

                    • Node.js

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

                      • Allow the users a choice of at least 2 versions of bootstrap we want to use.

                        Allow us to choose a few versions of bootstrap from within Dreamweaver.... As I was slowly working on a build all the sudden changes took place that turn Dreamweaver into a frusterating program practically useless for what I am doing. I am new maybe 8 months of using this program trying to figure it out again, years later now find myself very frusterated with uncontrollable change.

                        I am using bootstrap 4.0 ( bootstrap 4.0 is what my start into dreamweaver cc was installed with ) to build a website and have not had any problems other than figuring out how…

                        • Adobe to end work on Dreamweaver

                          I spoke with a friend at Adobe. He said the current version reflects moving resources away from Dreamweaver and that Adobe will cease work on the product. He thinks Muse will be their flagship development product, but of course like Squarespace, et al, requires an Adobe hosting account.

                          • iPad Pro (4Gen) iOS support

                            Now that Adobe is porting "the real" Photoshop to iOS for the new iPad Pro (Gen4) it would also be really nice to have DW on iOS.

                                when a user is writing html in the code view, it would be great is Dreamweaver would look at the linked css file and determine if the css class exists , if not a new empty class declaration could be added.

                                • improve the feature of legacy dwt and library

                                  I believe Template and Library features in Dreamweaver must be still very important on managing static site without CMS. Does nobody use in the world? I know HUGO is one of the static site generators and I assume there is a great demand as of old days. I wish Dreamweaver could make it more objective and I was very sorry deprecated Contribute should had been taking on an important role....

                                  • Need more information for creating and exchanging own Extensions of Dreamweaver

                                    We want a simple extension with the description and want to know how to share it with other users. Since Extension Manager CC was deprecated, the specific measure to share the original extension was far from obvious.

                                    Reason:
                                    a. Macromedia had been recommending to create user's own extension and share it with other users frequently by easy methods. It worked very well, however Adobe makes it deprecate initially not by preparing another methods because an extensibility had been ended so tragically and needlessly. Although there are many active developing communities in other eco-system of creating own plug-ins for coding editors,…

                                      • Remove space between property and value in CSS coding

                                        I write a CSS property, add a colon, and code hint appears.
                                        When I press Enter to use suggested value, a space beetween property (colon) and value is added.
                                        I don't need it. I don't code with spaces.
                                        This coding style is used since Dreamweaver v1 until last versions.
                                        If you want it, keep it, but please add an option in Preferences do not add this space.
                                        Thank you.

                                        • Request #3609524 and that support for CFML in Dreamweaver is very important to you as a customer

                                          Does the current Dreamweaver CC support ColdFusion (code hints, tags, etc) again? Perhaps a plugin needed now? I have not used in awhile, but last version I use from time to time is CS6. If it does, I'll probably buy the newest version and go that route. I tried to go back to CF Builder (newest version), but I don't think I'll be doing that. Obviously thinking through IDE's again eg: SubLime Text 3, maybe even IntelliJ ? I prefer to go back to DW, believe it or not, but I need the full CF code support that it had…
