  1. 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.

    • Re-Order Window Sizes In Preferences

      Need an option to change the order of window sizes in preferences. If you want to add new window sizes and you like them in small to large order or visa versa it a real nuisance reorganising and so primitive.

      • Syntax highlighting for latest PHP versions

        I have been using Dreamweaver for years. I develop in PHP. But Dreamweaver's support for syntax highlighting and syntax error handling for latest PHP versions like 7.1 and 7.2 is pathetic. Correct code gets syntax error warning. For example, type hinting and access modifiers generate syntax error.

        Please update PHP versions frequently. Remember most people use PHP as backend than any other language in Dreamweaver. Either improve PHP support or Create an amazing IDE like PhpStorm. I think Adobe's PHP IDE will be amazing.

        • 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…

          • Why doesn't Dreamweaver CC for macOS have an interface language for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese?

            Why doesn't Dreamweaver CC for macOS have an interface language for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese?
            But the Windows version has an interface language for Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese?
            We also need to have Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese interface language in macOS version!

            • Stop automatic find of next match

              I'd like Dreamweaver to stop automatically moving focus to the next matching item unless I click an arrow telling it to find the next matching item. I find myself constantly cursing when I am editing multiple pages in different tabs and I return to a previous tab, imagining that the document will be shown in exactly the same way as I left it... displaying the exact lines I left it displaying... but instead what happens if I had been using Find on that page then it instead moves to the next Found item. It should NOT do this, it SHOULD…

                • Search and Replace - Please Reinstate earlier version!!

                  Recently upgraded to Dreamweaver 18.2 and horrified by how awful search and replace has become. No longer possible to save or load searches, doesn't remember previous searches, doesn't always work (does not recognise strings that are present in code view) - search and replace used to be useful in Dreamweaver, now it is rubbish!!

                  • Drag and Drop in Code View

                    Since upgrading dreamweaver to 18.2, drag and drop in code view (to drag and drop html code) no longer works - please reinstate this valuable feature!!

                      • Turn Off New Features Pop Ups

                        OH MY GOD. Give me a way to turn off the new features pop ups. Every time I update my workflow and productivity is destroyed by some new nonsense.

                        • Bring it up to date with all open-source projects

                          HTML5, HTML5, CSS3, CSS3, JS, JS..... Open source here and there. Git and Github. Dreamweaver is not modern anymore.

                          • Node.js

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

                            • Live reload webpage in browser when files are (auto) uploaded

                              We use only one remote (live) server. We use a CMS to create sites for our clients. So we develop the sites (templates) on our webserver. Because we use a CMS we can not 'live-preview' this in DW.

                              In our workflow we edit a file and this file gets uploaded by DW to our server. Then we have tot reload the page in our browser to see the changes.

                              It would be great to somehow be able to auto reload the browser (website page we are working on) each time DW uploads a new file.

                              And maybe even sync this…

                              • Don't autoclose the Find and Replace dialogue after doing a 'Find and replace in files'

                                I personally would like the old Find and replace back because the current one is an awful implementation of functionality that was working well until the Dreamweaver devs decided to change it without consulting the users of DW first. However, as it seems that the DW devs ignore most of their customers requirements and requests in favor of whatever pet project they want to develop instead, could you at least stop the Find and replace in files dialog box from disappearing after I have done my Find and replace... In fact could you make it so that the DW does…

                                    require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/_includes/dbopen.php");

                                    This is a typical line I have at the top of my php. If Dreamweaver would simply allow me to say "ignore" the "$_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']." part of this line, the file path would be correct as it is relative to the web folder. If I remove that section the file appears at the top and I can click on it to view its source. It doesn't work of course since it's a full path on the server but it lets me view in DW.

                                    I should be able to set DW to ignore what I tell it to. If it…

                                      • Add more options for code coloring

                                        As it is now there isn't a way to color individual tags like the old system could. Example: <a>, @media, <table>, <form>, <img> set to be different colors each. As it stands most of those tags use the same color set. For me it makes it really hard to visually scan the code. I need more visual cues. Also, I've been noticing that selecting code and option dragging to copy/move code isn't working in css files.

                                        • facilitate css designer and php includes where the css file may not be linked to a document fragment

                                          add the ability to create a linkage between a parent and child document using a special comment tag
                                          for instance
                                          <!-- parent_file='../../directory_name/index.html' -->

                                          in that file there will be a link to the css file that is relevant to css designer and live view, or possibly an included linked file for example
                                          <?php include('../assets/php/sub_dir_headers.php'); ?>
                                          in that file there will be a css link as in

                                          <!--site Specific CSS -->
                                          <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../assets/css/site_specific.css">
