  1. shortcut to switch between source view and css

    It would be great to switch from html coding to css coding with a shortcut instead of having to click on the text areas above every time - it only makes sense as we go back and forth constantly!

    • Performance / Speed of the code editor is horrible

      The main dreamweaver code editor is horribly slow. I'm on a 5 year old i7 desktop and it should be fine yet its just horribly laggy. My PC is even slow when I'm not using it and a task manager check always show that DW is the issue, often using 15% or so of CPU time just sitting in the code editor with 3 or 4 files open.

      This has gotten to the point that its making me seriously consider stopping using the product.

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • Adobe to end work on Dreamweaver

            I spoke with a friend at Adobe. He said the current version reflects moving resources away from Dreamweaver and that Adobe will cease work on the product. He thinks Muse will be their flagship development product, but of course like Squarespace, et al, requires an Adobe hosting account.

            • Restore The Old Code Editor

              Please restore the old code editor, the Brackets one is a disaster and just horrible, performance is terrible, it hangs on copy/pasting in code view, its laggy at times even when just typing and scrolling is terrible, glitchy and very difficult to control. All I want is the old code editor back. Dreamweaver CC 2015 + Emmet + GIT integration. Who is advised you to go down this aweful Brackets integration route? For once do the right thing and stop ignoring the vast majority of users.

              • @media query context visible in the footer breadcrumb area in the css editor

                I find when i am editing a large css file with multiple @media queries it is frustrating to remember where i am. it would be very pragmatic to give some context info to the css editor window, the same way the regular xhtml editor shows the relative DOM selection point.

                • 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!

                        • Add FTP protocol for Amazon S3

                          It would make my job a whole lot easier if I could connect to an Amazon S3 server through Dreamweaver and not use a secondary FTP client.

                            • wysiwyg css grid editor with draggable edges that dynamically change the css definitions

                              the ability to interactively modify gridobjects and do so at different @media queries would be very welcome.

                              this came to mind while following along with the following:

                                Now that Adobe is porting "the real" Photoshop to iOS for the new iPad Pro (Gen4) it would also be really nice to have DW on iOS.

                                  when i am editing a css file, it would be great as i begin to type .first

                                  the program would be able to look at the linked files that use the css file and try to guess what i am defining with a similar scrollable list that narrows down as i type as the way the properties autocomplete works.

                                  • Improve Codefolding, Text indention, fix Cursorbugs

                                    Just switched to Dreamweaver CC 2019 from CS6... And it didn't work, Codefolds stay where they are when add something before. The tabsize changes if there is an indent in the line before and sometimes the cursor just bugs. Jumps to bottom of a document or selects a tag when you want to go to the next word.

                                    I'm going back to CS6 and feel sorry for my boss who pays a sh*tload of money for the cloud (worst idea of Adobe by the way) so I can use an outdated software...

                                    I wish that there comes a time, were…

                                        It would be nice to have a search option that would not search any cloaked files.

                                        • Managing Sites Add localhost

                                          It would be nice to have a localhost site definition for when I am using MAMP. This hopefully can eliminate error code 500 when I am working with PHP.

                                          I like my setup to be;
                                          projectdomain.com = remote
                                          local.projectdomain.com = testing
                                          projectdomain = localhost (to match my MAMP setup)

                                          DW automatically connects to the testing, working with PHP, having either include() or require(), those files have to be on the testing server to no longer throw "internal server error" - even though they are saved on on my computer.

                                          If you add a localhost site definition, that would be awesome…
