  1. Save password checkbox does not save passwords between sessions

    My idea is to make the "Save password" box in the FTP dialog box actually save the password between DW CC sessions. While using the program, the password is saved and works repeatedly, but upon quitting and restarting, the saved password has been forgotten.

    • Update made it even worse!

      Now when I double click something in PHP like $Pages['Var'] and drag mouse right to highlight the whole variable to copy and paste, something developers do all the fucking time, it excludes the dollar sign. From the auto complete quotes hell forcing me to delete the extra quotes it adds, then that delete deleting both quotes, then having to array over and type the quote again, taking 5 steps to add 1 fucking " or ', this Dreamweaver is just complete shit. It makes my coding life hell.

      • Real Time Preview mostly (!) not working

        It's a mess. Live preview shows more often the "sad" phone page with error message than the current file. Even restarting DW won't help in every case. It seems to have sth to do with frequent network changes. But that is my style of work: sometimes at home, sometimes at the customers office, sometimes abroad on train etc. Why can't there be classic preview additionally to the RTP, until you get that mess to work properly? Why do I need to restart DW that often?
        Would be great, to have it solved, as this is a great feature, that DW…

        • File Tree Name Sorting

          As seen on the screenshot file sorting of the letters are OK but when it comes to numbers its sorting it ascending from 0 not based on value.

            • Page updates from Template CC17

              I have been experiencing page update errors from a DWT file in DW 2017, build 2017.0.1. After creating new HTML pages based on the template, no updates take place on these pages when the template file is updated.

              I have experience more than once in CC17, but not in CC15.
              Has anyone else experienced this also? Is there a quick fix or is this a bug?

                • Some .html files don't open in Dreamweaver at all

                  Some .html files don't open in Dreamweaver at all—via the Open option from the DW File menu, double clicking or right-clicking and choosing "Open via…"

                  This has become one of the worst programs I've ever used.

                    • Source formatting forces line break in PHP file

                      When working in a PHP file, if a nested HTML element's closing tag is immediately followed by the closing tag of its parent element, the parent's closing tag is forced to a new line when source formatting is applied. For example,

                      <p>This is a <a>link</a></p>

                      becomes

                      <p>This is a <a>link</a>
                      </p>

                      This bug occurs regardless of the elements involved.

                        • Tabs are still not reopening after DW crashes

                          I've been encountering a problem with the Dreamweaver forgetting which tabs were open after crashing in DW 2017.5 (and all previous versions).

                          Usually, when there is a crash in DW, there is no explanation, and since it is unpredictable, there is rarely a chance to take a screenshot of which files were open.

                          Dreamweaver's "Window" tab lists all of the files which are currently open, in the order they are displayed from left to right. Any time that order changes, such as a file opening or closing, it would be very simple to update a temporary text file which contains…

                          • Background File Activity not background

                            The background file activity box does not stay in the background, it persists across every other program I'm using and is SUPER annoying. It would be great if this could be integrated into the UI instead of a stand out item.

                              I cannot see a way to remove tag & content 'inside selected text in a document'. This is a serious, because in previous versions there was.

                              Current find and replace feature in DW 2017 is just garbage.

                                Root-relative image links (e.g. /images/image.jpg") do not preview in image preview on hover (code view). These are supported by Dreamweaver per the documentation and can be linked this way via Insert -> Image -> 'relative to "site root"'.

                                • auto-compiled CSS files appear in the same folder with source scss, not defined output folder

                                  I am trying to use CSS preprocessor but auto-compiled CSS files appear in the same folder with source scss, however I defined the output folder.

                                  Just for a test I changed _base.scss to base.scss and base.css was created in the same folder.

                                  I also tried changing output folder several times but in vain.

                                  Dreamweaver CC 2017 on Mac.

                                  • This is the last bug I submit. You arent fixing shit and only making it worse

                                    CTRL+F is now broke. It doesnt list options anymore. Only current document. Review my last 100 bug posts to see why I just give up with you Dreamweaver. I cant even double click a variable to select it for copy/paste or type a ' or " without it adding extra crap, then when I delete one of the extra craps, it deletes both, so I type like 5 strokes for nothing to add 1 character. I am so incredibly disappointed with this Dreamweaver. Its so frustrating.

                                      Hi guys. I have a brand new install as of yesterday (2017) and it is jumping to the top of the page after doing replace all. Probably the only issue I have with it but it is really getting annoying now, especially in long pages, I am constantly losing where I am in code and it is becoming a distraction, any suggestions please?

                                        Files Panel - Site List Drop Down does not work - instead opens Site Manager - no drop down list of Sites.

                                        Sometimes it works, other times not

                                        • function keys keyboard shortcut

                                          I remapped "Put" to function key F9. It doesn't work. I restarted DW adn still the same.
                                          If i put an addition shortcut on the Put action, eg CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER this puts the file as i intended.
