  1. Implement a development roadmap

    It's quite frustrating not knowing when bugs will be fixed so it would be nice if Adobe would implement a development roadmap to give even a rough idea/target of when fixes will land. With the current process it feels like nothing is happening for months until a new version suddenly appears with no warning.

    • HTML and CSS typed into a PHP document within HEREDOC block need code coloring and hints like DWR 2015 had

      when HTML and CSS are typed into a PHP document within a HEREDOC block then code coloring, hints and auto fill need to work.

      For example: $_body = <<<EOFEOF
      <!-- ?> -->
      <h1 style="color:#ffcc00"> this should color as HTML and hints should work just like they did in 2015 </h1>
      <!-- <?php -->
      EOFEOF;

      • Tool for editing CSS Grid like the tables one.

        A tool like the tables tools you already have but for grids. That would be spectacular and will make Dreamweaver a truly web Design software.

        • Visual web app creator

          https://www.dmxzone.com/go/33041/join-the-revolution-wappler-is-coming-up

          From the DMXzone's announcement:
          "Adobe Dreamweaver is turning more and more into a tool for hardcore coders and loosing its well-known visual abilities. It's also a truth that Dreamweaver's development has being way behind the latest web or mobile app developments."

          I think they are absolutely right!
          If Adobe doesn't change something quickly in the development of Dreamweaver, the future of this historic Macromedia's software is destined to an inevitable death.

          I just hope that Adobe does not decide to buy DMXzone and make it die as it did years ago with Interakt.

          • function and variable panel

            There needs to be a panel that can be docked giving a full list of all functions and variables defined in the current script allowing quick jumping to this, that can be sorted alphabetically.

            We already have the context menu, but this is not in alphabetical order and not something that can be docked.

            This is the one missing feature that is putting me off from switching full time to DW.

            • Dreamweaver and xd intagration!

              My idea is to have Adobe XD and dreamweaver integrate each other with both of their platform .My idea is to have the user interface from XD And the code editor through G dreamweaver To be able to integrate the prototype design in XD and Transform it into the HTM L5 and CSS Code that is needed for each app or website that is being designed unfortunately Dreamweaver cannot open XD files which would make everything easier inside the creative cloud.

              • slow slow slow

                Both 17 and 18 is extremely slow on my MAXED OUT MacBook Pro 2017, I intentionally switched to the high-performance mode and still, freeze for seconds all the time, sometimes can't even type few strings of code, and it just hangs there.... Please.... Let me use older versions of DW so I can do my work smoothly.

                • Add more code color selectors options for brackets

                  If there is a way that you can add selectors to target individual tags like <script>= red and <a>=green that would be AWESOME! Having all tags look the same really makes it harder to do my job. The coloring in CC 2015 was nicer to work with and I know everybody would really like to see more options.

                  • Liquid Syntax Hybrid Mode with HTML and Coloring

                    Would love for Dreamweaver to be able to support liquid markup with color coding. Also, even though we can switch document types, Dreamweaver still doesn't support .liquid, .inc, .tpl file types. I have liquid markup which is similar to twig in these files. I can switch to twig to get code coloring for my liquid markup but then the html code coloring disappears. Other code editors have the ability to have hybrids like Html (Liquid) so that it reads both the html mixed in with the liquid markup like Sublime Text, TextMate and others.
                    Also, another big issue for me…

                    • Next/Prev document shortcuts

                      Every code editor or IDE I've ever used is able to let me tab through open files. But not Dreamweaver CC 2018.

                      I cannot set these shortcuts because Dreamweaver wants to tab through the input fields if I use ctrl+tab to set the shortcut! Look at PhpStorm, they have a wonderful shortcut editor that let's you control every inch of the software. That tabbing behavior in Dreamweaver is not editable, as I see.

                      • Search functionality diminished in Dreamweaver CC 2017

                        I was very disappointed to find that the Search and Replace functionality has been dumbed down in the lastest version of Dreamweaver. This is one of the features that previously set it apart from other software.

                        -Dreamweaver can no longer export the results to CSV. How could it be decided that this should be removed? This boggles my mind. This was an extremely useful feature which saved massive amounts of time.

                        -alt hotkeys removed!? This drives me crazy - not everybody wants to reach over and grab the mouse to browse menus and click everything; flipping back and forth between…

                        • "Standard" Toolbar only showing a sliver of itself, in win7 - cc2018

                          When selected to display, the Standard toolbar only appears as a sliver in win7 with Dreamweaver cc2018.

                          See attachment: Standard toolbar appears above DW UI, but only a sliver of it. It is not movable. Deselecting the toolbar will make it go away.

                              • When site definition window is open can not select open document, DWR should not be disabled when preferences or settings are open.

                                Problem:
                                Open a plain text document in DWR, type FTP information into it
                                (server name password, ect...)

                                Open the "Site Setup" definition window
                                Try to select the OPEN document
                                Error: DWR prevents focusing on open documents when the "Site Setup" window is open. It should not.

                                Open documents should be delectable when any DWR dialog window is open at any time because we copy/paste server IPs, passwords and other connection info into open documents, having to open/close the dialog for every field is annoying and not good workflow.

                                Please update the system to allow open documents to be selected when…

                                • Be able to use the keyboard to find the class through the properties panel instaed of slowly scrolling through

                                  In the properties panel you used to be able to click on the class button and type the first letter or two and be down in the range that you are looking for, but now you have to scroll through a whole list. I end up just doing it in code view, but it would make a few things go much faster

                                      • Quick Open File

                                        Just like in brackets, where you hit a command like "Shift + Command + O" and it opens a text box where you can start typing the name of a file or the path it's in and it will show you a list of matches, or files that reside in that path structure.

                                        Then when you click on the name of a match it will open that file to start editing.

                                        Manually searching through the file tree is very tedious.

                                        • Collapse code by function name, instead of line number

                                          When I edit one file from multiple computers I have issues with collapsing. Looks like folding is assigned to the line numbers instead of actual (logical) nodes { }

                                          For example (the attacjed images are named according to the step numbers):

                                          1. Write code in Dreamweaver
                                          2. Collapse some nodes
                                          3. Edit the same file on another computer or in external application
                                          4. Open it in Dreamweaver on that computer on which you performed the step #2.
