  1. 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…

    • Cursor should Blink in Both windows when in Split Mode

      In earlier versions - when using (parallel=split) code/design view - I could position the cursor into the design and the cursor would also blink in the code,
      so locating the script related to the design was easy.
      Now there's a cursor, but it doesn't blink anymore /plus often the related code is outside the code window, so i have to even scroll there!- in old times it adapted).
      I understand that it is not considered active since i clickd into the design window, but if working parallel in code/design mode i do this especially to compare code with design, so…

      • Restore Table Commands

        Using tables is still valid for tablualr data, quite often used in backoffice systems, so why did Adobe remove the table commands that were originally present in the modify menu? Insert row(s), insert column(s), merge cells etc were all really nice time savers, now everything has to be done in code view. I just do NOT understand the thinking behind removing a feature that still has it uses on occassion?

        • automatic css generator while html is written

          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.

          • 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…

            • Additional starter responsive templates.

              I pretty much have worked from coding html using WeBuilder, not as professional as most commenters here. The responsive templates are pretty involved and a bit rigid in that respect. Right now I am looking at the eCommerce template, but it's rigid in its space usage; I need to adjust space, and I am not doing an ecommerce site - don't need the login/cart stuff, and not product selection. Want Picture/lable buttons to go to different pages for an informational organization, I'm going to proceed to modify for me, but wish it was more easily adaptable.

              I would also like…

                • multiscreen preview

                  removing this from previous versions was a serious mistake. although clever, the new preview mode is not user friendly - why would i want to have to turn on and check previews on different devices - im looking at my deskop!

                  secondly, screenshots taken from previewed pages in a browser dont work, they wont take a screenshot of the full page - only the viewable area - i have tried this with numerous screenshot plug ins.

                  i have opened the html file directly in a browser and the screenshot works fine.

                  this is a huge oversight and shows you have…

                  • New Mobile App Framework - jQuery Mobile Appears To Be Dead

                    Need a new mobile framework like Framework 7 supported in Dreamweaver to replace jQuery mobile if as it appears that the project has hit a crossroads and is no longer being maintained.

                    • 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…

                      • The program breaks if you don't put your .dwt files in a "Templates" folder

                        If you create a template and save it - it should prompt you to create a templates folder or when you create a site that it creates the template folder for you and only saves to that folder. Otherwise you need to fix it so templates can be in the root folder for the site.

                        • 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!

Let us make some bookmarks global so they can be displayed for all open documents in the entire local site.

                                I'd love to see data objects back in Dreamweaver. It writes a lot of the database code for inserting or updating a database based on your form. From there, it was very easy to manipulate the code to meet or tweak your needs. It saved SO much time.

                                  • Move a line/tag/element up and down without cutting and pasting.

                                    Adobe added the option of 'Move Line Up' and 'Move Line Down' in Brackets but I didn't find these options in Dreamweaver. Please add these options in Dreamweaver.

                                      • drag and drop files

                                        I don't seem to be able to drag and drop a file from the files panel to the code panel any more. Has this facility been removed?

                                        Cheers,
                                        Tom

                                        • Cursor jumps anywhere in code view when selecting an element in Design view

                                          This is very annoying. Always trying to find where is the cursor in code view, when selecting an element in design view. Something the cursor is top of code view, somethimes it is bottom of code view. Hope this get fixed to make the searchable element in the middle of the code view page.
