  1. Is too slow

    Adobe please this need to be address, I've been using Dw since 2011, it was slow than even slower now. I don't understand why you haven't fix this. We costumer are paying top dollars on this app. I personally have 2 subscription one for me and one for my kids academy purposes. $76 every month for a few years, we deserve better.

    • I'd Like to see CSS work a lot easier than it does now. Bring back the creation dialog box

      I'd like to see them bring back the dialog box previous versions had for creating css code, Just expand it to include more current css features and functions.

      The current CSS Designer is awful, hard to use and does not help at all. Many times I search the internet for the things I need to do Css wise and cut and paste in to a Css file. Once pasted in I can then make sense and use of the Css Designer.

      Aside from losing most of the php usefulness DW use to provide - creating CSS is the second most…

      • php include or require ignore DOCUMENT_ROOT

        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…

        • 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…

            • manage fonts feature needs preview custom text for multi font comparison

              i would like to type in a sentence and see in the font selection panel how the sentence is rendered by a selection of fonts, see the link below for an idea of the interface:
              https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/franklin-gothic/

              i have seen other pages where you can compare the fonts with custom text

              • 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">

                      • in the css designer the ability to adjust scroll bar properties

                        particularly important if the designer has chosen to adjust the corner radius of a scrolling div, the height of the apparent right hand side of the div needs to be the same height as the scroll bar.

                        • Search and replace panel and library items that can be used as the source to replace with including behaviours

                          i like something about the way the library items can have attached behaviors .. it occurred to me that this would be a great time saver if i could search and replace static code with dynamic behavior assigned library items across all documents in a specified folder etc.

                          • Library panel 'Replace' button for insert/replace of currently selected item in the currently active document

                            when i have a document open and i want to replace an item with a library item it would be great if there was a replace button to improve the workflow between the library panel and the document view

                            i just noticed that if the item is selected and i hit insert it does actually replace the current selection .. so it may be a renaming of the button issue.

                            • save css file linkage problem - add a save icon in the css designer beside resources listed

                              i find the css designer needs to be checked to see that when i modify a propery that i can use the ctrl-s to save .. possibly adding a small save file icon beside the names of the resources listed in the css designer 'all sources' panel would make it easier to quickly save and stay in the same editing mode.

Let us make some bookmarks global so they can be displayed for all open documents in the entire local site.

                                • scrollbar up and down controls returned

                                  I'd like the up and down buttons at the top and bottom of the scrollbar in code view returned. I used to be able to browse slowly through my code by simply clicking the down button at the bottom (or the top) of the scrollbar, but now the only way to use the scrollbar is by dragging it...which makes it way less accurate than a button click does in terms of how many lines are scrolled up or down. I can't actually think of one single reason why useful functionality such as this would be removed to begin with, but…

                                  • Better tab functionality: scroll along long list of tabs; drag and drop anywhere (not at end)

                                    I recommended this before and you followed up but never did anything. I've been using Dreamweaver since version four in the Macromedia days.

                                    I'd really like for you to implement better functionality when it comes to handling tabs in code view.

                                    I want to place my mouse cursor on a tab, and then be able to scroll with either the mouse wheel or the magic mouse to move along all the open tabs. Navigation kind of sucks when you have a lot of tabs open, but often this is unavoidable as many of the same changes need to be accomplished…

                                        • Batch process modifying document

                                          Dreamweaver does not currently offer the possibility to batch process documents composing a site.
                                          Being able to change the DOCTYPE, the encoding or the type of a group of files could be very useful when we take over an old site that we need to update.
