Adobe Dreamweaver: Ideas

  1. Move line by line

    In MAC, the line specified by "Command + Shift + Up" moves up one line at a time, but this is not possible with windows.
    Similarly, in MAC, the line specified by "Command + Shift + Down" moves line by line, but not in windows.
    ATOM can be done on windows, so please make it possible.

  2. Make it more graphic designer friendly

    I am a graphic designer moving to the digital design world. Most of my colleagues, like me, struggle to switch to development because the software aren't visual enough, while we are very visual people. Why don't you create a mode, an add-on or whatever works to make DW more visual for us? Just to give you an idea, Bootstrap Studio is a good example of a more visual software. You will gain all the professionals who want to move from graphic to digital, people who was/are using Muse, Webflow, Squarespace etc.

  3. Bring back the web safe color palette!

    It used to be when I opened the color picker and clicked on the "hex" option, it would give me swatches of web safe colors. Now it just gives me the same interface as the RGB one. Most of the time, I just want a basic red, gray, black, white, etc., but now I have to hunt and peck for the right color.

    Bring the simple swatches back!

  4. Better Upload Support

    Its is nice that you can upload a page and everything that is linked in the link[href], [src] and the PHP include/require(_once) functions gets uploaded as well....

    A JS file is makes an AJAX call, upload the linked file in the URL parameter too.

    I've started to use LessCSS, I've asked for better support (ie. Formatting -- would be very nice & also mixin and variable intellisense)... but the Less file gets uploaded because it is in the link[href] attribute - but what is connected via @import isn't and it would be nice it it was.

  5. Related Files toolbar to include .html (Not just Source Code)

    The Related Files toolbar displays all sub-files (.css .js etc) and the Source code (.html). When I navigate through to different pages, the Related Files toolbar updates depending on the page i'm viewing, showing different .css and .js file relevant to the pages. However the source code remains the same; it remains linked to the .html file of whatever i originally opened in Dreamweaver. This becomes an issue whenever I wish to edit the .html of a different page than the one i began on.

  6. Find in files - add a filter to select the file type to be searched

    Using Notepad++ as an example add a filter that allows the searching of specific file types i.e. search in just PHP files which will prevent CSS files appearing in the search results. Notpad++ has the filter . which can be changed to .php or even class.php to search just class files if that that's the file naming convention for class files.

  7. Right click OPEN document -> add option to "locate in site"

    When a document is OPEN int the CODE pane,
    Add a "right click" option for "locate in site"

    the same way the SEARCH "locate in site" right click works (see attached image for example)

  9. URGENT autosave please ! As the recover function DO NOT WORK AT ALL

    hey guys, why dont you implement a simple autosave feature on Dreamweaver. I had several crash or simply empty battery and everytime I trtied to recover the file... I have an error from YOUR application (even with the 2020 version yesterday). As you are not able to fix the revover feature, just add autosave, it is really boring to save the file very minutes by hand !

  10. Removing empty tags, also removes behaviour

    eg. removing <p></p> removes a blank line. For <p></p> consider replacing it with <br>.

  11. Can not color specific tags using MAIN.LESS

    VIDEO DOCUMENTATION OF PROBLEM
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1d4-kq78rI

    FORUM DISCUISSION
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/dreamweaver/code-coloring-issue-can-not-target-specific-tags/m-p/10812330#M56827

    Problem:
    Can not color specific tags using MAIN.LESS
    open a .PHP document
    try to make the FORM tag GOLD
    try to make a DIV tag in GREEN
    MAIN.LESS does not allow us to target specific tags

    https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/customize-code-coloring.html#
    the information on this page is incorrect, unfinished, or, DWR has a bug.

    To reproduce the problem:
    Make a custom theme using the page link above.
    Try to style a FORM tag in GOLD and a DIV tag in GREEN in a PHP document.
    Does not work. You can only color ALL the HTML…

  12. UX Design of Dreamweaver is plain awful

    I have been trying to create a newsletter and failed terribly after days of trials. I am so unhappy with this software and I would never recommend it. I do not understand why Adobe is so not on track with real life and small businesses' needs. Online you find so many free template sites for easy (but ugly and limited) newsletter creation. Now, I am paying a high monthly subscription and have to quit trying and pay again for someone that is able to code a simple newsletter.
    I am super frustrated!

  13. Synchronize Button Symbol

    On the File Browser the new Synchronize button looks a lot like a Refresh symbol. As such the Synchronize dual arrow shape could be more rectangular, for example. The Refresh symbol looks correct, but has moved to the lower section and the upper section now has the Synchronize symbol instead, and looks alike.

  14. Minimap in Code Editor

    Please add a Mini-map feature to the code editor. It really helps out and is pretty standard with most IDEs.

    It would be handy to be able to expand or collapse all the folders in the Files pane.

  18. Click on the color swatch to edit color the color

    In code edit mode Dreamweaver gives a color swatch flyout when the mouse is place over the code for a particular color. It would be great if a programmer could then click on the swatch to edit the color. Just a simple short-cut. Similar to placing an image as the source is being type and you get file picker feedback to browser for the link.

  19. Why, in the first place, were the up and down arrows removed from the scroll bar to the right of the file list?

    In the DW Web Page Editor I have the local/remote files displayed to the right. Somewhere along the line the up/down arrows were removed from the damn scroll bar. If the decision to do that was profit-driven I can't imagine it would have been much. Amazing. But how many billions of dollars would it cost to put those little arrows back in place?
