Bring back custom code coloring.
I can't find custom code coloring. For instance, letting me set the colors of certain aspects of PHP code. The default is just so bland.
With the Dreamweaver CC 2017.0.1 update, you can not just customize Code Themes, but also create and edit existing code themes to suit your coding & design needs. For more information, see: https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/customize-code-coloring.html
Download the update today and let us know what you think!
We have started working on “Code Color Customization” improvements by adding support for customization of generic and language specific colors.
We have further stabilized the code coloring feature in our latest Prerelease build 15333.
You can refer to below thread for more details on code coloring customization improvements. https://forums.adobeprerelease.com/dwalpha/discussion/467/dreamweaver-build-15333-is-now-available#l...
Please join Dreamweaver beta program from below link and try out the feature.
Please go ahead and try out the build and let inflow your thoughts/suggestions. Looking forward to your valuable feedback.
We have started working on “Code Coloring Customization” improvements by adding support for customization of generic and language specific colors and the changes are available in our latest Prerelease drop.
With this improvement you will be able to customize Code Colors in Dreamweaver Preferences --> Interface window.
Please join the Dreamweaver beta program from below link and try out the feature.
Please note, that the functionality is in the initial stages of implementation, we expect the build to have some stability issues.
However we are eager to hear from your early feedback.
I agree. Can we fix this please?
Here is an example of the code coloring problem with a video showing problems with code coloring: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1d4-kq78rI
Once again, this is 2019, nearly 2020 and this has still not been properly addressed
We are still unable to target specific TAGS either as a limitation of Brackets or very bad oversight in Adobe's development decision. We have been waiting YEARS for this now.
HERE ARE OVER 1000+ ITEMS FROM 100+ PEOPLE RELATED TO THIS ISSUE WHICH WAS NOT A PROBLEM IN PREVIOUS VERSIONS. The community has spoken, we are paying users whom have invested a lot of money over decades into this software, new versions should not have important features removed
This still does not work, can not CODE COLOR specific elements in .PHP files. For example, try to make a FORM element GOLD and a DIV element GREEN in a PHP file
That's exactly how it looks like.
But I'm afraid if they put this back in, the fridge will open when I press CTRL + C -STRG + V.
Nevermind - it's a Dreamweaver customer insider.
I don't want to have to learn a whole new way of doing something that is so simple in CC2015 - please bring back this functionality. I'm sick and tired of now having to pay for old software especially as I cannot use your "upgrades" - at least let us have software that is now 4 years old without having to pay a subscription - we've paid more than enough for it..
Wow okay so i just came from updating to the latest dreamweaver version and wow you guys are really adamant on ignoring the user huh im amazed actually ha ha ha ha ha ill never throw you guys under the bus ill just simply downgrade to 2015 and keep it there seems like thats the peak and will be my peak forever at this rate 2018 they took out the best part of dreamweaver i dont care about all your fancy shmancy intergration tools and upgrades all i want is to be able to see my code in the color that i want and make sense of everyfing the way i was used to it no use complaining about the stuff i wanna see fixed and changed or hell reverted to coz your not gonna listen are ya no your not and you know it so yeah why dont we all just go back to 2015 and let adobe be saves time and avoids stress
So, you can alter the color scheme/theme - but just doing so will have you tearing your hair out. Instead of a list of tags and color-pickers next to them (making it a simple job to select the colors we want) we now have to edit a LESS file. I could even cope with this if it used meaningful and rational naming conventions, but instead it is a convoluted mess. I have now spent over 4 hours simply trying to get back to the way that I find the most useful for me to do my job - the job which Dreamweaver is supposed to support me with. There have been a couple of useful additions to DW over the last few iterations i.e. Git support, but sadly, the actual environment itself seems to get worse and worse looking, and less and less usable with every iteration and many of the 'features' seem to get a new bug with every update. It's a sad state of affairs when this is considered to be acceptable. For instance, I have switched off as many code-completion tools as I could find, but still Dreamweaver insists on completing brackets, quotes etc, whether I want it to or not, and let's be clear I DON'T WANT IT TO! I used to just spend my time coding, now I spend my time coding, and fixing code-errors introduced by the environment I'm working in. Again, how is this acceptable? Visual Studio has its issues, but I can't ever recall me having to spend any time fixing code that it had introduced without my permission or say-so. I know I'm complaining a lot, but the state of Dreamweaver is pretty shocking when compared with just about any other company's offerings. If I could convince my organisation to move away from Adobe I would - but luckily for you, your Photoshop dev team appear to still know what they're doing... that's the only reason that I haven't managed to convince my organisation to dump your software completely... and hence why I'm still stuck with this second-rate, buggy piece of rubbish as my dev environment!! Are you not ashamed of this Adobe, even a little bit??
ARE YOU LISTENING ADOBE? We don't like your theme. We need customize it.
The way to customize interface is a big,big, BIG SHIT!!!!
Still waiting for Adobe to port DW2015 Classic code coloring theme for the new Dreamweaver. When DW2015 starts showing symptoms of being outdated before any new DW has its useful syntax colors back, I will be switching to an alternative code editor. I'm not ready to sacrifice my productivity because someone at adobe made a poor decision.
If you are incapable of making good decisions, then just listen, we are already telling you what we want, right here.
Won't let me up-vote this.
I'm not sure if this is connected to the same thing, but I cannot find a way to turn the files area background white again (as it used to be). Grey backgrounds suggest 'disabled' areas or 'label' areas. And to be honest, looks ugly as sin. For a company that likes to believe helps designers/developers, I have to ask why you keep making decisions that actively ignore and sometimes actively hinder your CUSTOMERS from doing their jobs with the software that is allegedly created for that purpose.
Of course, having said that, I could have just missed the area that allows me to change these settings - so perhaps if anybdy knows how to do this (preferably without having to hack theme files and that kind of outdated rubbish) I would very much appreciate receiving that knowledge.
It is a little ridiculous that I have to 'fight' the software to do my job correctly. If you can't see this Adobe, then this is worrying. If you can see this, but are just ignoring the issues (sadly typical of the Adobe I know) then this is doubly worrying.
Editing a less file? Really? I have to revert, this s***cks
What is so difficult to set the Default DW 2015 Thema in DW 2017/18?
I installed it for a week an deinstall it again, i can't work with him!
Dreamweaver must be the only application that gets harder to customize. 2018 is ridiculous.
Choose > download > install
VERY BAD! i need to change color theme and i can't... why? isn't normal.. previous version were the bests!
