      • Make a span tag from the insert menu with an icon that can be put on favorites bar that will wrap around text.

        Currently in design view you can select text, right click it, go to wrap tag and type span there but you cannot do it in code view or the insert menu. You only have wrap div there. Since you got rid of the insert named anchor people need a fast way to put anchors in that won't work with a div or paragraph id such as if the word you want to link to is in the middle of a large paragraph. That will only work with span or named anchor.

        • Strip tags option

          Where is the option to strip tags like in the previous versions of Dreamweaver

          In the DW Find/Replace box, next to "Search:" select "Specific Tag" and in the next field put font

          For "Action:" choose "Strip Tag."

          • New code highlighting color/text combination would NEVER pass accessibility

            When you're in code view, and you click within a tag, it highlights it in a pale green color and changes the text color to white. The contrast between the pale green color and the white text is not high enough and you can barely make out the text. This makes it very challenging to click within the tag at just the right spot if you were trying to edit it.

            Please fix this so my eyes don't have to strain.

            • 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...

              • Why was the ability to strip tags/attributes removed in Find/Replace? Please put it back.

                Need to cleanup junk Word code pasted in from a client and the "Clean up Word HTML" isn't doing the job. Being able to remove style attributes using Find/Replace is essential. Please put it back.

                • Find and Replace - Save and Load query feature has been removed

                  The Find and Replace feature no longer offers the ability to Save or Load a query. I have several regular expressions I use to clean up data from content. Please add this feature back in. I can no longer access my saved queries.

                  • Find and replace will not detach from the top of a page.

                    I really need find and replace dialog to be independent from a certain open document. Not sure what the reasoning is for it to be fixed to a document, but it doesn't help at all. Causes extra toggling around when switching documents. Please give ability to use as it was in 2015. This is not an improvement.

                      • Find & Replace

                        This USED TO BE such a useful tool. Now, if you want to find "text" in Current Site:

                        1. Dreamweaver asks to open a document. Really?

                        2. Now, OK I open a document; find "text" ONLY AVAILABLE OPTION: REPLACE ALL / FIND ALL. Really?

                        WHAT ABOUT FIND NEXT?

                        In the past (I dont now who launches this DOWNGRADES) you could start searching for "text" and DECIDE to Replace or NOT.

                        Such a waste.

                              Whetever you type into the find window is now there permanently unless you close the page or go to the search results box, open the little hamburger menu and select "find and replace". then you can go back and search again. Very awkward!!

                              Whetever you type into the Replace window is now there permanently and I have yet to find a way to get rid of it. Even restarting Dreamwearve doesn't help.

                              • PHP Edit Highlighted Quotes

                                New code editor is so annoying and there's no way to customise it's behaviour.

                                If I highlight a double quote and I wish to replace it with a single quote , on pressing the single quote key it inserts two single quotes either side of the previously highlighted double quote.

                                I like the idea of DW auto closing quotes but it shouldn't force it when a double quote is select or a single quote (when replacing with double quote).

                                This is just an interference.

                                And whoever decided the dollar sign should be highlighted instead of just the variable name should…
