  1. MAC Dual Monitor Support

    It would be nice to have the ability to split the design and code windows between two MAC monitors. I have two iMac's connected to one another and it would be nice to have the design view on one monitor and the code view on the other. I saw that you are testing it with PC's, but saw nothing about it being tested with MAC's.

    • Option to DISABLE the CCLibrary

      For those of us in the enterprise, who have strict rules against cloud based services, the CCLibrary is a nuisance. It just checks in the background CONSTANTLY. Good thing I have Atom as a secondary editor, because DW2018 has become even more unusable.

      • On this site, when I click on an idea, should return to page I was on, not beginning again

        On this site, when I click on an idea/suggestion/bug for more detail,
        it should return to me to the page I was on, not the first page on the list again... when I click the link provided to return me to the ideas... it's the little things that make life easier, and being as you're supposed to be one of the top software houses for developing website creating applications... this website really doesn't show off your software or your developers' abilities at all. Another one I don't understand is why can't I stretch a text area to make it bigger?…

        • Include Laravel-Blade Syntax-Highlighting

          Laravel is the most popular MVC PHP Framework. DW users need syntax highlighting for the integrated template machine blade. Otherwise, a switch to other code editors is inevitable.

          • PHP related files not working in some cases

            If PHP code uses related paths in require_once() command like:

            require_once("newlib2/global.php");

            and real location of file is eg. /some_folders/newlib2/global.php then all related files will not be available in navigation bar. So please include in site specific hints the paths definitions for PHP includes / requires It could be wise to do maps like:

            search for related files in 'folder X' in 'path X'
            search for related files in 'folder Y' in 'path Y'

            etc

              • Increase live preview QR code size

                Currently it's impossible for me to scan the minuscule live preview QR code with my phone or tablet. Please give us the ability to click it to increase the size/make it full screen so it is possible to scan and actually use.

                It looks like a great feature but I'm finding it impossible to use

                  • Stop making changes and fix the existing product.

                    DW 2018 has so many bugs and issues it literally doesn't work.

                    • It seems like the entire application is really buggy and odd. I never know what it's going to do. It seems inconsistent.

                      It seems like the entire application is really buggy and odd. I never know what it's going to do. It seems inconsistent in behavior. The undo command is a nightmare. I pasted something earlier and it ruined everything. Dreamweaver seems like it would be really cool, now — but it's like some sort of psychological experiment. It is one of the most treacherous applications I've ever used, other than some program that constantly crashes.

                      • Allow git association to be just the themes folder in WordPress

                        Currently git works well and WordPress works well but Dreamweaver does not take in account git repos that are a subdirectory of the root folder.

                        Most people will only create a repo for the theme folder and not the entire WordPress core so this becomes a problem when associating a git repo to the site.

                        • Remove the width limit on the insert window

                          This has been a thing for the last few versions of DW. I dock the Insert window to the top of the App Frame. As it is now it stops at 1080 leaving many of the items hidden. Is there anyway you can just have it go as wide as the frame/screen and have it scroll if the contents are wider than the window?

                          • Code-Live-Code View

                            I like using Dreamweaver because of the live view, but its pretty much useless if I cant toggle 2 code panes at once...I want to view the code for both my style sheet in one pane on the right and my index home page in another pane on the right, while still viewing the Live view on the left half. So like 3-4 panes to view code/live...Like a Code-Live-Code View.. Thats why I use Sublime instead is because they have this (alt+shift+2) shortcut that splits your view into 4 different panes!! Amazing...

                            • Provide information on SFTP protocols Dreamweaver uses

                              Dreamweaver has become much less useful for me :(.

                              My site's server just changed its sshd configuration to remove insecure algorithms and Dreamweaver (v18.0 on a Mac with High Sierra 10.13) can no longer access it via SFTP. It does not support FTP. I have the list of my server's supported SSH Ciphers, Kex Algorithms and MACs.

                              How can I find out what ssh standards Dreamweaver supports? Is there a way (e.g., a config file) that I can update Dreamweaver to ensure it uses one of our supported crypto standards for SFTP?

                              My idea is to provide information on what…

                                • Disable "Content goes here..." Placeholder text when using DOM Panel

                                  When I teach Dreamweaver, once learners have a grasp of hand coding HTML using Dreamweaver Code Hinting, we cover the DOM Panel and building quick HTML structure using this panel. The trouble is, the code ends up being littered with lots of unwanted "Content Goes Here..." placeholder text. It is a pain to have to go and clean all of this up in the code. For me it makes what could be an incredibly useful tool very painful to use. Can we not have some option to "Disable Placeholder Text". That would really make a difference in my life.
                                  Thanks

                                  • Add function that detects external monitor is connected and restore size and position

                                    Scenario: I connect an external monitor, and put Dreamweaver in that external monitor.
                                    The external monitor sleeps and all windows go to the laptop
                                    Note 1: Dreamweaver should resize to fit the laptop window
                                    Now when the monitor is woken up, all my apps go back to the external monitor with correct sizing and position. Dreamweaver stays in the laptop, incorrectly sized. All the other apps know how to handle this. please add

                                    • scroll bars design

                                      I use a 4K 3840x2160 screen. In use, I find that the size of the vertical and horizontal scroll bars is ridiculously small in width and the color of the handles not quite contrasted compared to the background color!

Adobe has made some great changes, but one thing that was an issue in the early 2000s and is *still* an issue now is setting default permissions. I know I can right-click my remote files and change permissions manually there. However, I seriously should not have to do that every time I upload a file. My boss, who is in my user group, is unable to edit files after I've uploaded them, and as you can imagine, this is not a good thing. It's a…
