  1. Worst version of Dreamweaver I have used

    You have made no actually enhancements to CC 2017. I wish I could uninstall and go back to the old version.

    1. Ever worse when connected to network drives
    2. Worst find and replace functionality I have used. For some reason also jumps to the top of document after each replace
    3. Hidden commands
    4. 'Put'ting documents is now hidden with a drop-down (this is the only reason we are force to use your product)
    5. Still can't believe how bad the search and replace is
    6. So slow with so much bloat!

    You are ruining web development. I'm using…

    • Tab in Find box should go to Replace box

      In the Find/Replace window (ctrl-shift-F), if the focus is on the Find box and Tab is pressed, focus should move to the Replace box instead of to the In dropdown.

      • Bring back php so it works again in Dreamweaver!

        Please bring back Dreamweaver's support for php. Dreamweaver for years used to work with php beautifully. We need php for ssi.

        • Scrollbars cover the code

          The code is hidden by the scrollbars on the edges of the screen. Both the right and bottom. I am unable to see most of the bottom line or the ending characters of a line in general.

          I don't usually post in places like this, but this has become past inconvenient.

          Thank you for working so hard to continuously update and fix bugs/make improvements. Please include this in your next update.

          Mac OSX Sierra, Dreamweaver 2017.5

          • Change the name from Dreamweaver to Muse Editor

            The last version of Dreamweaver (2017) is the worst of ever and change a lot of things respect to the last stable version (2015 or even better... CS6).
            I think it's time to close Dreamweaver project and rename the 2017 version with the its correct name:
            "Muse Editor"

            Maybe you could alert old customers with this message:
            "End of an Era
            The legendary Dreamweaver is no more...
            Adobe shut down the software and replace it with Muse Editor"

            In this way should be more easy understand the limitations and the bugs with 2017 version development.

            • Do you hear us Adobe?

              Macromedia...you've lost my business. Other reviewers are right...Dreamweaver has become bloat-ware with too many features no true web-professional needs.
              Once upon a time I loved Dreamweaver. It was a great code editor with a simple to use FTP client. But, I've had enough; Dreamweaver MX crashes on me 4X a day on average. I'm going in search of a clean and simple code editor. If I can find one that has some kind of code complete feature for XHTML, CSS and ASP.net, so much the better.
              Furthermore, thanks to WYSIWYG editors, I fear that too many developers out there don't…

              • Allow extensionless files to be identified by DTD

                In previous versions, an extensionless file could be identified by it's DTD (e.g. <?xml version="1.0"?> and the correct coloring applied, along with options to format and validate the document.

                Now, they are treated as plain text. Choosing "XML" from the lower-right menu only turns on colouring, it does not allow validation or source formatting. It also does not remember this choice for future files, which means editing 50+ files becomes incredibly cumbersome.

                • CSS code formatting

                  Please bring back CSS code formatting. As we all know, auto-formatting is great because we can bash out thousands of styles and clean them up at the end... but forcing every style onto a new line makes large CSS files bloated.

                  Arguably, we all work different ways but I personally find it much easier to scan single-line styles. You kept code source formatting in 2017 but not CSS; why force all users to work the same way? Please bring this feature back!

                  • Sharing Snippets and Snippets Suggestions

                    It will be amazing to be able to share code snippets with other user in my company.

                    And will be useful to have Snippets Suggestions "a-la-Coda" (screenshot attached)

                    Please, this will be outstanding for my workflow! It's one of the reasons I don't switch to DW17 full time!

                    • Adjusting tabs: Make smaller Tabs when number of tabs increase

                      Every other software can do this:
                      if there s no more space in the tab bar, while use arrows to painfully slowly scroll to the desired file, when it could be easily prevented making the tabs a bit smaller (to a certain degree, until too small, of course).

                      Right now the width of the tab is defined by the name.
                      Especially if i have a big project with a lot of files i need expressive filnames, and I work on up to 20-40 files at the same time.

                      Just use Chrome as an example: it will adjust the tab bar…

                      • forms and inputs tags need to have different color

                        Let me start by saying I wish I could get the old DW back. It was the best editor I used. I hate DW 2017. In previous versions, it was easy to see where the form begins and ends including all the inputs tags in between. It was orange. Now I can't find anything in my code. I have to constantly use the find feature (another feature I hate). Everything takes so much longer to do...

                          • Borrow or ask for code editor theme ideas from Sublime Text

                            The Sublime Text editor has really cool color schemes and its interface is way advanced than Dreamweaver's code editor. I like the way sublime has lines the connect pairs of braces, and the way it has completely distinct colors for different elements (tags, variables, functions, etc.) in a code. I also like the way Sublime Text Editor has color schemes that distinguish between different languages in a code; like in an HTML file with JavaScript or PHP, it will show which section is JavaScript or PHP by giving the entire section a highlight. Dreamweaver cc2017's code editor is too monotonous…

                              • Files panel sorting

                                I'd like to be able to sort the Files panel by individual files first, then folders, alphabetically in ascending order. It's possible to sort by category and get most of the files at top of the panel and folders below, but they're listed in descending order. See screen grab. (BTW, clicking the UP arrow on Tyoe column does not re-sort alphabetically.)In screen grab, which is close to what I want, the .css file ends up at the bottom; would prefer to group with html files at top.

                                  Just updated a bunch of CC apps - including Dreamweaver, now i can't use the program - Can't use code view (blank or non-responsive), shortcut keys not working, very slow, etc.

                                  Very buggy! Disappointed! Please fix!

                                  • Why only 10 files in file history? Why not open them all together?

                                    it was a pain alaways, when i work, often i got like 10-30 files open or more, when i got to restart the computer or dw, i need to manually open them again, and even though DW says it offers "open recently open files" at start, it often does NOT do it. This and so many other disappointments make me go for other editors. BYe bye paid software ;)

                                      • Performance on Windows 10 severely reduced

                                        When toggling between an active browser window and Dreamweaver 2017, the application freezes.

                                        Files are local, no test server involved AND I have followed every performance recommendation I can find via Edit > Preferences.

                                        System is on i7-2600 with 16GB RAM.

                                        The program has become unusable in the current state which is particularly troublesome for those depending on it for a living.

                                        I reverted back to 17.0.0 and this resolved the issue.

                                        I have installed the GIT package (still in Beta I think?) that may also be affecting this performance degradation.
