  1. File Window allow other window to show over it.

    Right now the Expanded File Window stay on top in your screen at all times. This is not how it use to be and it is annoying as hell. It should move to backwards and allow other windows to show above it.

    Right now I put it in the Application bar until needed and have to go back and forth too often.

  2. Bring back similar capabilities that were in the InterAKT Kollection Pro

    I still use Dreamweaver 8.02 for many sites that I have built over the years. Some have generated over 2.5 million is sales. The point is since Adobe killed this product they bought Dreamweaver has become more of a designer tool than anything else. I can buy excellent cheap templates to satisfy my design needs Cheaper.

    I have been with Dreamweaver since version 1.0 and it is so sad to see the demise of Dreamweaver through its slow current death march.

  3. On version 19, dropping WYSIWIG is totally unacceptable. As is anchor visibility.

    On version 19, dropping WYSIWIG is totally unacceptable. As is anchor visibility. It is also trivially easy to unintentionally delete large code blocks.

    As to Dreamweaver's glacial boot and large file speed, this was first solved in Applewriter on the IIe. Per https://www.tinaja.com/ebooks/awcb.pdf

    We can discuss this at don@tinaja.com or 928 428-4073. I have been an official Adobe nemesis for many decades.

  4. show current server name on top bar

    Show which server DW is currently connected to.

    Right now to know which server one is connected to one needs to open the file tab and/or hover over the get and put arrows or right click on a file and see what it is being compared to.

    I propose having the current server displayed just to the right of the Help option on the menu bar.

    Unfortunately I have uploaded to the Remote/Production server thinking I was connected to testing.

    Thank you.

  5. JavaScript 'Apply Source Formatting'

    Please consider adding an 'Apply Source Formatting' -> 'Edit tag library' for JavaScript code embedded in HTML or CFM to allow auto indent of code.

  7. Bring back code hinting support for VBscript

    Bring back code hinting support for VBscript - using the asp <% %> tags destroy both code hinting and color code for the rest of a document - wich are a major setback when working with elder ASP ASP.NET projects.

  8. WordpressSiteをRemoteからimportしPHPfile等を編集後upload出来るようにして欲しい

    WordpressサイトをRemoteからダウンロードして、ローカル環境のPHP上で変更の確認や動作確認を行い、修正したPHPファイル等をサーバにアップロード出来る機能が欲しい。MAMP Pro5のような感じ。

  9. Bootstrap Configuration - Theme Colors

    Bootstrap Configuration - Theme Colors

    When configuring Bootstrap for a site, it is possible to override breakpoints and gutters before Bootstrap resources are compiled. It would be really helpful if the same dialog provided options to change theme colors (warning, info, etc.)

  10. Turn Off New Features Pop Ups

    OH MY GOD. Give me a way to turn off the new features pop ups. Every time I update my workflow and productivity is destroyed by some new nonsense.

  11. コードビューで選択範囲をコピーする動作を修正してほしい

    コードビューで選択した範囲をコピーする場合、optionキーを押しながら選択範囲をドラッグするが、はじめからoptionキーを押していないと単純な移動になってしまう。
    他のテキストエディタやIllustratorでのオブジェクトのコピーのように、選択範囲をドラッグし、離すタイミングでoptionキーが押されていればコピーされるようにしてもらいたい。

    なお、Dreamweaverのコードビューでも、選択範囲をドラッグし離すタイミングでoptionキーを押すと+のアイコンが表示される(にもかかわらずコピーされない)ので、更に混乱を招いていると思う。

  13. PHP support in css files

    I am using a framework where I can use php inside css files. However dreamweaver does not recognize php tags inside the css file (see image).
    Would be great if dw could support this.

  14. Additional starter responsive templates.

    I pretty much have worked from coding html using WeBuilder, not as professional as most commenters here. The responsive templates are pretty involved and a bit rigid in that respect. Right now I am looking at the eCommerce template, but it's rigid in its space usage; I need to adjust space, and I am not doing an ecommerce site - don't need the login/cart stuff, and not product selection. Want Picture/lable buttons to go to different pages for an informational organization, I'm going to proceed to modify for me, but wish it was more easily adaptable.

    I would also like…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. multiscreen preview

    removing this from previous versions was a serious mistake. although clever, the new preview mode is not user friendly - why would i want to have to turn on and check previews on different devices - im looking at my deskop!

    secondly, screenshots taken from previewed pages in a browser dont work, they wont take a screenshot of the full page - only the viewable area - i have tried this with numerous screenshot plug ins.

    i have opened the html file directly in a browser and the screenshot works fine.

    this is a huge oversight and shows you have…

  19. Add node.js support

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add node.js support. It's popularity is growing vs php, which is phasing out with younger/newer web developers.
