Adobe Dreamweaver: Ideas

  1. Update DW to properly handle workstation-based symlinks & shared templates

    I've used DW for over a decade now and I use it exclusively in code view.

    I maintain multiple sites which all share a common page template and code base, such as PHP objects, PHP functions, PHP constants, HTML snippets, images, JS and CSS libraries, etc.

    On the server, I have a master directory where all this common code resides and each subdomain implementing them has a symlink to that directory. This when I update the master copy in this directory, all the sites immediately have access to the new resource.

    I can mirror none of this on my Mac…

  2. Increase the Link box under Properties window

    I'm working with a lot of hyperlinks especially editing existing ones using Dreamweaver and I cant help but notice that the "Link" box is very very small and working on it is really troublesome. In my workspace in Dreamweaver I have docked the Properties window in the bottom and (from the screenshot) there is a lot of unused space to the right. The ability to extend the Link box would be a great help. Thank you!

  3. Coding Style Versatility/More Usability

    In D.W. 2015 I have the ability to overwrite shortcuts with my own and wrap the taget code. I do not use bootstrap or anything else but html, api's, Mysqli, PHP and Javascript in my own code mostly. Hence I don't need very many if any shortcuts for anything but making my coding more efficient which isn't done with %98 of the built-in shortcuts. That specific function allows me to key in my own style of coding and excel. It really stands out from the rest with the functionality of how D.W. displays, connects, and saves files to my website.…

  4. Dreamweaver 20.2 Icon.

    Just updated Dreamweaver to v.20.2, the icon is now the same colour as XD, was this a mistake? Please fix this back to the original green colour so we can distinguish the two apps.

  9. Renaming and Files / Remote Server

    When renaming files, such as html-pages and images, and Dreamweaver correctly updates the links on the web pages, some of the old files may stay on the remote server. Wouldn't it be feasible to prompt the user with a reminder that remote server may have redundant old files, yet some of the old files may have been renamed for example default.html gets overwritten when putting the new files.

  10. Code hint should be able to get list of class's methods that I made

    n many case, we have to create classes and methods in JavaScript code. However Dreamweaver does not keep track of JS classes and methods provide we create or provide code hint using our own class names as well as custom created methods. We hope Dreamweaver would be able to do it.

    Additionally, jumping to definitions by desired method such as clicking should be also supported.

  11. Bring the "Find in Selected Text" feature from DW-CS6 to DW-CC

    Dreamweaver CS6 had a "Find in Selected Text" feature which is not present in Dreamweaver CC. It was useful to search just part of a document instead of only being able to search the whole document.

  12. Request to have multiple instances of the 'Files' panel open simultaneously

    To have multiple instances of the 'Files' panel open simultaneously would certainly speed up work.

    I've got several huge sites with 1000s pages (grown over the years from when DW was part of Macromedia) and endlessly having to scroll up and down the single files panel is so time consuming and irritating.

    To have 2 or ideally 3 files panels open, each focusing on separate blocks of files, would certainly speed up work.

    Thank you.

  13. copying content copies the wrong line of code

    I copy a line of text or code, and then try to paste it. It pastes the line of code that is underneath the line of copied.
    Once it starts happening, it does not stop. I have to write the line of code manually to get around it.
    Cheers

  14. Drag and drop from outlook attachment to Dreamweaver

    It would be great to be able to drag an attachment from outlook, or other mail program directly into the local view folder of Dreamweaver, without having to go through the process of saving the outlook attachment to a local directory, then refreshing the files in local view before uploading.

  15. Teach DW to follow symlinks (aka macOS aliases or Windows shortcuts)

    I used symlinks on my servers to point multiple subdomains to a single library of shared code.

    DW does not allow me to duplicate this environment because it doesn't know how to process symlinks among these same sites on my workstation.

    This cannot be that hard to implement.

  16. include $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . 'filename.php';

    The include files will not show a related tab if the $SERVER['DOCUMENTROOT'] is used instead of the relative path.

    For instance:

    include $SERVER['DOCUMENTROOT'] . '/components/head.php';

    Versus

    include '../components/head.php';

    The first example would not show a related file to the right of the (Source Code) tab, whereas the second example would have a link for head.php to the right of the (Source Code) tab.

  17. get parameters in server behaviors

    In old versions of dreamweaver with server behaviors, when linking to a php file, there was the option to specify the "GET" parameters that we sent to the file. This option disappeared in the current beta versions or the installation of the behaviors as an extension.

  18. Need more editable shortcut keys in code view

    While there are many IDEs on the market, there’s no reason to use one if you don’t have to use one. Since then it’s become a question of ‘code speed.’ If I start with a new IDE, I’ll slow down. On an emotional and professional level, I can’t really afford that. It takes energy to pivot to a new editor.

    Take Atom, one of the more popular IDEs/editors. Most importantly for users, there is a Vim Mode package. This has led users to literally turn Atom into Vim.

    Most IDEs create entire worlds where developers can create, but creating requires…

  19. Content Preview in files panel would be helpful

    While finding a desired file in files panel, Dreamweaver could show it within preview window by hitting space bar the same as Finder on macOS which called Quick Looks. Windows build would be also available the same as macOS one.

    It would be even better if Dreamweaver could preview not only image files, but also HTML and PHP documents, just like the Finder.

  20. Locate the source file from link in code view

    Right-click on the link file in code (src, href, url) , then select "Locate in site/Explorer " from the context. We would be able to access the desired file in Files panel or Explorer.

    Web development requires the management of multiple files simultaneously. It makes accessing the files we need much faster.
