  1. Please allow the code window to be a draggable, self-contained window (as per the timeline in Adobe Animate).

    Please allow the code window to be a draggable, self-contained window (as per the timeline in Adobe Animate).

    This will allow users to have code and design/live preview stretched across two screens instead of just splitting horizontally or vertically on one scree.

    • Add support for Node.js

      Node.js is powerful tool for back end. So, to include it is a good idea.

      • Add view buttons back to the interface

        One thing that got removed from the interface that was really nice to have where the Code/Live/Design buttons. I used those a lot in earlier versions and I still need to but now that feature is not as convenient to use and it really slows my work flow down. We also need the content refresh button back. As it is now, the refresh is very unreliable and is is very disruptive to the work flow when the only way you can get the content to refresh is to close and reopen the file you are working on.

        • Dream Weaver Compatibility With Muse

          I think that opening a Muse file in Dreamweaver is a cryptic mess and programming Nightmare. If you all could change it so that there is compatibility between the two via modern programming principles such as modular format and clean neat code that is easy to decipher I think it would be the start of a hybrid platform with excellent potential.

          • Please only show matching tags when I actually select a tag

            Please only show matching tags when I actually select a tag. The current method is extremely distracting, quite annoying and also a little bit confusing. It makes it look as if those tags have been selected, when in actual fact they haven't. I would prefer it myself if the matching tag, bracket or whatever is only show when I select the tag (or some of it) or bracket. I don't want it happening every time I click somewhere. Also, there are a lot of bugs surrounding this i.e. when I click just before a closing bracket and try to type…

            • Class action lawsuit

              Adobe has a legal obligation to its customers, of which it is failing to meet several of them for many of its customers. We urge the users whom are suffering frustration whilst using the Dreamweaver product to consider joining a class-action lawsuit against the Adobe company. Please consider if you or your work are being affected by any issues in the following products: Adobe Dreamweaver 2017 or Adobe Dreamweaver 2018. We shall post more information in the next few months regards a legal challenge to Adobe. Stay tuned.

              • Menus to level the learning curve?

                I guess it's because I'm just now learning how to use the program, but I fail to see how Dreamweaver is at all user-friendly. I mean look at Photoshop and Illustrator, they both have layers that can be edited individually and can hold multiple elements in each layer. You can even group them together and open the world's easiest menus to navigate to quickly edit the whole group. Even Premier has channels so you can easily stay organized and edit your work. I just don't get why Dreamweaver feels like it was designed to keep new people away. My biggest…

                • Complicated dreamweaver 2017

                  Hi I find the new dreamweaver very complicated than the before. Im talking of the 2017 version. Is there a way to simplify the 2017 version more close to what it was 2015?

                  • not committing to github

                    Initially git worked ok, but now it's stopped committing to Github - it says it has committed, but when I log into my Github account via a browser and look at the commits - it shows that the last commit was several days ago even though I just committed an hour ago (and yesterday). Getting a little concerned about this being as we pay you to provide a tool to us, and expect it to be able to perform our necessary safety measures (i.e. using a repository) correctly. If it's not doing that properly, then that means your software is…

                    • BUG: When testing server not defined and css file doesn't exist it swaps from code view to 'design' view for no reason

                      BUG: My testing server not defined. I have a PHP file open - which is showing the connected files across the bar at the top. I click on the ones that do exist, and it just swaps the view to those files (as expected) and shows me the code of those files. However when I then click on a connected file that doesn't exist - it then attempts to get me to define a Testing server - which I say NO to, and then it swaps my view to a design view instead of the PHP file which has the…

                      • Why you have touched search / replace function in code ?!

                        In previous Dw versions there was option to replace specific tags with specific attributes.

                        How to obtain the same functionality now?
                        Current search is lame... Really.

                        • Fonts of the "Files" tab is particularly small

                          All fonts in the interface should be completely controllable but in particular I find the files listing really hard to read. It's 2018 adobe, please resolve this and add more customisation

                              In Manage Sites, I would like to organize the sites into subgroups or folders. I have so many sites and it is a bit of a mess locating them.

                                  • Inconvenient help system for JS

                                    Only way to get information about JS function is just start typing it. There is no way to see the help when function is already typed. Moreover, when initial phrase is typed in, only single suggestion on the list contains the link All suggestions shoud have the links..Moreover, it should be also allowed to select any JS function in code, right click on it and choose link to the documentation. The same in PHP.
                                    When start typing, the hint

                                    • Allow larger text size in application windows!

                                      I can change the text size in the code view, but the text in find and replace and all the other panels is tiny on my monitor - like 9 or 10pt.

                                      Please please please throw a bone to those of us that have been staring at a monitor for a significant portion of the last 25 years and either allow us to set the text size for the entire application, or at least make the default larger.

                                      And don't tell me to fix it by changing my monitor resolution. That is not a solution.

                                        Git commits stop working after update to Dreanweaver 18.1

                                        Hi, after I update Dreamweaver to 18.1 versión, the confirm button doesn't work...
                                        see screenshot. In it i'm trying do a commit to remote repository.

                                        How can solve it?

                                        thanks in advance.

                                        Regards

                                          I would LOVE to be able to paste a table into Dreamweaver... say, from InDesign. Instead, I need to insert all data over again. BIG time waster.
