  1. Full path name of the open file not showing the CC 2018

    2017 and previous used to display the current file filepath on the top right of the window (right of the current tab).

    This is no longer working in 2018. The only way to see what file is being worked on is to hover over the current tab and wait for a tooltip to display.

      • Paste does not work with Cmd + V in the new 2018 version.

        I can copy from anything. InDesign. TextEdit. Even Dreamweaver itself. But Cmd + V does not work. Paste is available in the Edit menu and it works. But the key command completely fails

        • 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.

          • Dreamweaver CC 2018 Crashes when scrolling with touchpad

            When using DW CC 2018 on my Dell Precision 5510 running Windows 10, the app keeps crashing. It appears to be doing so whenever I try to scroll using a two finger gesture on the laptop's touchpad.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • Dw CC 2018 Browser preview very slow or doesn't work

                  Real-time preview just went kaput with cc2018, healthy system, files launch fine with direct launch from folder. In all, FF, IE, & Edge, just kind of hangs, takes forever to render, or just doesn't, or doesn't even show preloader gifs (white screen). Must be an issue with Dw.

                  btw: I love Dreamweaver. It is the most central tool in my life.

                  • Find All And Select does not work with accented letters

                    "Find All And Select" function does not replicate on other selection the accented letters, e.g. "aéíóu" will be changed to "au" instead.

                    • cmd z crashes dreamweaver

                      I use Dreamweaver CC 2018 with a mac (10.11.16) daily.

                      Intermittently, when I use cmd z it force quits the programme. Usually when I restart cmd z force quits it again. But if I wait a while it's ok. It has been a week since this last happened to me, but sometimes it is daily.

                      I can't seem to replicate the problem - there doesn't seem to be a pattern.

                      Any help would be appreciated!

                        Hi,

                        Thanks for the all the co-operation.

                        I was able to reproduce this issue consistently on Windows 10- 64 bit but I am still not getting it on MAC. I followed the steps as below-

                        1. create a multicolumntemplate file in full code view and save it in a site
                        2. open multiColumnTemplate.css as a separate file and undock it
                        3. Do some changes like set padding-bottom:1px;
                        4. dont save the file
                        5. Move the focus to main Dw window and click on Device Preview to preview it in firefox
                        6. It will ask to save the files- click on save
                        7. Go back to undocked css window and do Ctrl+Z
                        8. Don’t save the file
                        9. Move the focus to main Dw window
                        10. Click on View→Split→Code-Design→>>>Dw crashes

                        See if you can come up with a related workflow on MAC as well, although we will get this investigated.

                      • Can't tab between 2 files if one has it as a sub file

                        Hi,

                        Again another bug when Dreamweaver does the weird php file including.

                        In the image below you cannot press ctrl+tab or ctrl+shift+tab to switch between loader.php and pricing_controls.php if you have more than the 2 files open.

                        Dreamweaver will always tab to the other files that are not linked together. This is making dreamweaver almost unsuable.

                        Is there a way to disable this stupid linking function? without being able to tab between files properly it is fucking useless.

                        • Please bring back code coloring for ASP/vbScript.

                          please bring back code coloring for ASP/vbScript. I have many (old) ASP sites that need to be maintained. I don't want to switch to another

                          It is completely frustrating. I need to use DW 2015 but pay for 2017 and 2018.

                          • Dreamweaver not starting (menus.xml)

                            Latest Dreamweaver CC 2018, fresh install.
                            When running it the first time it says like "There were errors when creating menus from the information found in the current menus.xml. Delete menus.xml and rename menus.bak to menus.xml" (but it doesn't tell where to find). But the menus.bak from the installationhas the same file size as menus.xml (it is actually the same file) and when renaming it, the error repeats of course.

                            Means, Dreamweaver won't start at all. DW deleted, fresh installation - still the same. DW then remains in the memory and has to be killed. Looks like a package error.…

                            • MAJOR BUG - double click on a string, press CTRL+C to copy ends up selecting the WHOLE document

                              Do the following:
                              Open 2 documents in CODE view
                              Switch to document 2, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
                              Switch to document 1, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
                              repeat

                              The entire document ends up being selected as if ctrl+A was pressed, this causes major workflow problems when attempting to simply copy/paste strings across 2 documents.

                              Please fix this ASAP!!!

                                    Hi,

                                    Can you give us more details on the following-

                                    1. Is the crash happening consistently? If yes, can you give us exact steps so that we can replicate the issue at our end? If no, then is there a specific file where it is happening- can you share that file with us?
                                    2. Which platform?
                                    3. Which Dw build are you using?
                                    4. Can you send us the crash logs?

                                    Regards,
                                    Niharika Gupta

                                  • 2018 update very disappointing

                                    Hi,

                                    I was expecting a lot from this update. Las!... None of the very basic requests made have been integrated. A few examples:
                                    - Copy/paste still randomly not working (the only way: close and reopen Dreamweaver)
                                    - When hovering a selection, the mouse is the "I", not the arrow
                                    - Still not possible to copy a selection by mouse drag (this is really a basic request)
                                    - Welcome page: last opened documents have been opened... in the future!!! (see attachment)
                                    - SVG files: very poor implementation (no colouring, poor proposals...)

                                    Before implementing more or less useful new feature to this…

                                    • dreamweaver cc 2018 korean typing issue.

                                      When typing Korean character, there is a problem that the last letter disappears when I move the focus to another point.

                                      This problem occurs in the latest version of Dreamweaver 2018 cc(now 2017-11-26).

                                      This issue is critical.

                                      please fix this as possible as soon

                                      • Save All, Put All, Pull All commands missing from MAIN->FILE menu

                                        Under FILE menu the following commands are missing/needed
                                        Save All (saves all open documents)
                                        Put All (FTP push all open documents)
                                        Get All (FTP get all open documents)

                                        These are essential when doing a Shft+Ctrl+F command and replacing items in multiple documents. Although the Search Pane has a right click option to "put" all items, this is not always the most productive way to work, many times we simply need to "Save All" and then "Put All" to apply only to open documents.

                                        I seem to remember this feature existed in DWR 2015...

                                        Thank you for your consideration.

                                        • google chrome

                                          I am no longer able to get Google Chrome to render as it should. The position of DIV's are not recognised/defaults somewhere. This is the same on iMac and MacBook Air. Everything was rendering fine until very recently. Live and split view works ok, and rendering onto safari works OK also. Happy to share the images of the working and not working page!
