    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.

    • 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!

        Hi Jeremy,

        Thank you for such a detailed explanation, your feedback and support is really appreciable.

        I have raised this point in the team and we all agree that there should be some way to minimize the size of CSS file in Dw, there being none at this point of time. That said, we have a general consensus on having one functionality that minifies a CSS file or a JS file in future.

        Similar ideas have been shared by other users as well on the thread- dreamweaver.uservoice.com/forums/379458-ado..

        I would request you to think about this and tell us if this minify CSS and JS tool makes sense for you, I will then merge both ideas together and create a single story for the team to work upon.

        Regards,
        Niharika Gupta

        • Easily copy remote URL of a local file

          If I use the files panel in Dreamweaver, it should be very easy to copy the URL under which the file will be reachable in the browser via the configured remote server.

          • Syntax coloring

            Please bring back custom syntax coloring in the preferences menu. The bracket highlighting doesn't make sense. It's makes it difficult to parse the contents of a tag when trying to read it quickly in the document view. Tags should all be the same color. While class stands out appropriately, content should be contrasted to glean through quickly. Other words are randomly highlighted various colors ("use", "with"), and I don't know why. Please reference the random colorization in the attached file. I don't see the logic. I'm not experienced with editing a LESS file, nor do I have the time to…

            • Highlighting Properties for Inline Styles

              In DW CS6, inlined style properties display as a different color then their values. Inline styles is common practice for building emails and likely won't be changing any time soon. It seems odd that the older version of DW supported it, while the new one does not. Inline styles should share the same color coding as styles in the main stylesheet.

              This would be greatly appreciated. One of the main reasons I use DW over other code editors is simply because of the compactness of having the preview available in the same window for emails.

              • Split DW into two products : lightweight code editor (developpers) and wysiwyg (designers)

                You should split developpment with a lightweight code editor for developpers and wysiwyg for designers.

                I never use live view and all designers features, unfortunaly dw is loading all of them...

                As a PHP developper i only need these features :
                - Projects managment with FTP (i use dw only because the others code editors doesn't have a similar tool)
                - Code fragments
                - Find / replace
                - Linting

                • Code Collapse LOCK

                  If a block of code is collapsed it should stay collapsed when switching back and forth OR there should be a way to LOCK the block - just a little lock symbol

                  • Sync dialog box too small

                    When you synchronise between local site and distant one, the message box displaying the files being exchanged is too small: please enlarge it.

                    • CSS Grid support - Live View

                      Would be great to have CSS Grid Layout supported by Dreamweaver's Live View.

                          • 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…

                            • w3c compliancy clean up html / remove attributes

                              currently in the clean up tools xhtml there is the option to remove specific tags, please add remove specific attribute. For instance the w3c has now listed the 'name' attribute as obsolete, it would be very useful to be able to scan a directory of files and remove all name attributes from <p name='custom_name'> becomes <p> perhaps this could allow <input name='custom_name'> to be kept while <div name='custom_name' > would be removed.

                              • Dreamweaver doesn't know the other Adobe file extensions....

                                It would be cool if Dreamweaver's file explorer would let you open other Adobe files of programs that are also in the Creative Cloud.

                                Like, wasn't this the whole point of the creative cloud, that the different apps could work together?

                                    • Copying Microsoft Word Text and Pasting in Dreamweaver

                                      Whenever I copy Microsoft Word text and paste to Dreamweaver, it inserts line breaks instead of paragraph tags for paragraphs after the 1st paragraph, unless the paragraphs are separated by 2 returns. Could you please change this, so that paragraph tags are used for each paragraph, even if the paragraphs are separated only by a single return. Also, is it possible to copy other formatting, such as subscripts and superscripts? This would be very useful. In fact, would it be possible to copy and paste HTML tags only, so that any formatting represented by an HTML tag can be pasted…

                                      • New Keyboard Shortcuts for Writing

                                        I previously used Expression Web, which used many of the same shortcut keys as Microsoft Word. Dreamweaver does not seem to have these shortcuts. could you please add them? I use subscripts and superscripts frequently, so these shortcuts will greatly accelerate my writing, in the same way that keyboard shortcuts accelerate working in Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator.
                                        Subscript Ctrl + =
                                        Superscript Ctrl + Shift + =
                                        Because this formatting is not available as a menu item, I cannot make these shortcut keys using the Keyboard Shortcuts tool.
                                        These shortcuts work in Code View, but not in Design View. Writers…

                                        • Find and Replace for Design View

                                          In Expression Web, I can do a search and replace in either Design View or Code View, but in Dreamweaver, the search automatically drops me down into Code View and there does not seem to be any way to change that. I like the fact that it highlights all of the Search terms, but search or find would be more useful if I could do it in either Design View or Code View rather than being forced into Code View. Could you please provide this option?
