Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. The editor in Dreamweaver 20.2s so slow that I can regularly type ahead.

    The editor in Dreamweaver 20.2 Build 15263 is so slow that I can regularly type ahead of the response on the screen, and I sometimes get a “not responding” message.
    I am editing an HTML file that is 28KB, but has 20 images of approximately 25 KB each. In addition to the source code there is also the following: bootstrap-4.2.1.css file, custom.css, jquery.fancybox.min.css, nav.inc. footer.inc.
    Other open applications include MS Word, Firefox, and Outlook.
    All files reside on the my desktop PC, which is an Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-6300 CPU @ 3.80GHz, with 16.0 GB Installed RAM, running a 64-bit OS…

  2. Slow typing for some reason

    I have noticed there has been a recent issue with Dreamweaver when typing it is either a lag in the input or either it does a slight freeze. I have checked my own computer to make sure and have enough RAM to run it and other things in the background.

    Even have disabled prior applications to test it and still a lag in the interface when trying to code HTML templates and other markups. The only one that doesn't have an issue filetype wise is coding CSS stylesheets. I don't know if this was reported before, couldn't find it searching…

  3. Clicking in code or live view jumps randomly to an unrelated part of the page.

    Clicking in code or live view jumps randomly to an unrelated part of the page. This has been a problem in Dreamweaver for years, but much worse lately. Sometimes I have to scroll through hundreds of lines and seek out and click on the same element or line of code half a dozen times, over and over again, until Dreamweaver finally lets me edit it. Despite my best efforts, my kids are learning all kinds of unfortunate language at high volume because of how badly this interface sucks.

  4. Dreamweaver 20.1 Slow

    I find 20.1 slow.
    Often when loading or closing a file the screen will go black and the tool bar will say not responding.

    Moving between files has a delay.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting.
    Could you please share more information with us, to narrow down the issue at our end.
    1) Are you using large/heavy size files in Dreamweaver, can you specify the size of files you are using
    2) Does this issue happens while opening and navigating between, different file types or specific file extensions in Dreamweaver.
    3) Are you opening files from local drive or from any network location
    4) How many files at least should be opened for the issue to be reproducible, while you navigate between the files.

    Thanks
    Dreamweaver Team

  5. html file extension

    On macOS it is very easy to save an HTML file without the .html extension. DW isn't smart enough to correct this oversight.

    If you create a new HTML by File > New then choose the first document type HTML and then finalise with Create you are placed into a new untitled HTML document.

    When you attempt to save on macOS you will first see the text field for the file name with selection highlighting. The default filename and extension is highlighted. Immediately typing anything will overwrite both the file name and the extension. So you might type, "cool-site" hoping…

  6. WebDAV 20.2

    WebDAV is completely broken in 20.2. I've changed no settings at all just downloaded the most recent update and now none of my WebDAV connections are working. See attached error message.

    The current configuration works perfectly fine in 20.0 and 20.1. Also worked in CC19 and CC18.

  7. Undo, if I am in a document

    2 code documents open,
    click into one, make change
    click into other, make change
    click back into the first and hit undo
    flips back to the first document that you do not what undone and undo's it.

    All editors I know of can handle undo in individual files with out unding none wanted changes of the other documents. This is deal breaker and end of my use of Dreamweaver, it HORRIBLE.

  8. Navigating to a stylesheet when there are many is too hard in DW2020, make it possible to do quickly

    I'm developing a drupal site, but actually I'm just trying to use DW2020 for rapid iterations, which I would normally use browser developer tools and my IDE(vscode). It's wonderful to see Dreamweaver back in the App lineup. (I'd love to see asp.net and other template based things suppported and yes I've seen the extensions)

    To recreate my situation with a fresh copy of dreamweaver:
    Choose open file, type https://test.resurgenceevents.org as the filename. Open it, and add this tag to the HEAD section of the html (without the space before last speechmark needed to post as comment):
    <base href="https://test.resurgenceevents.org/ "…

  9. Bug

    Dreamweaver 2020 on Windows 10 is extremely text unfriendly compared to DW MX. It is forever taking time off to think about the simplest edit and it moves from display to code ridiculously slowly. I have lots of memory - that isn't the problem. It repeatedly flashes "not responding" and does so when it's closing to. It feels like a good application has been ruined by over-elaboration. What is it doing with my memory? Other things - the Find and Replace function is much worse than previously and no longer integrated. I dislike the killing of anchors though I understand…

  12. Screen redraw issue on MacPro 2013 with AMD FirePro D500 3 GB

    I am having a persistent problem with DW 2020 v. 20.2 15263 where pages will open (slowly!) and in split view or code view the code will not show up (see attached). I have tried this is safe boot and the issue persists, but not every page every time. I also note that when using some features of WebAssist's wizards, the screen will cycle and go into complete limbo for minutes at a time, although the connection to the database is immediate. I am NOT having this problem on my 2014 MacBook Pro, so I am assuming it is the…

  13. Dreamweaver 19.2 Impossibly Slow

    I'm on Windows 10 and just updated to Dreamweaver 19.2. I have only one file open and it is mostly frozen. I have cleared my DW cache and reset all my preferences and I cannot navigate within the code. I'm in Code View with the Developer workspace. It is unusable in this state. Help!

  14. On Windows computers, the program freezes terribly

    There is a delay of about 1-3 seconds when selecting a code fragment or entering new lines. The problem occurs even with zero load on the computer, without live view.

  15. Roundtrip DW ->PS -> DW, image size change isn't reflected back in DW

    The scenario is DW 2020 (on macOS 10.15.5) is editing web pages where the artwork is too big. So the image need to be down sized. Have set up Photoshop to be the Primary editor for JPG files.

    When you select the image in Live view, properties window updates.
    Can see the current size of the image.
    Click the Photoshop icon
    In Photoshop
    Image Size change
    Save again, adjusting the JPEG compression ratio
    Back in DW

    Properties doesn't update
    DW is not picking up any change to the file status for the file it just went off to edit.
    This…

  17. Template Issue: areas outside of editable regions are not grayed out and are editable.

    I have created a template and created an editable region. The non-editable regions are the header, footer, etc. But whether it's existing pages based on this template or new pages created from this template, the non-editable regions are editable and not grayed out like they used to be.

    What I've tried:


    • Updated to most recent Dreamweaver


    • Restarted Dreamweaver and the computer


    • Created a new page and made sure the box is checked that links it to the template when it's updated


    • applied it manually but after existing Dreamweaver reverts back to no greyed out areas


    *restoring preferences

    I have been…

  18. tabbing creates multiple tabs in code

    When coding in a .vbs file it tabs multiple times instead of one. I have tried turning tabs off and it still does this. I don't know what he deal is. Even if I remove the tabs and try to continue the line it tabs multiple times again throwing the alignment of it off. This is extremely annoying.

  19. Paste into search field pastes and overwrites into code window

    Frustrating bug that makes me overwrite precious code.


    1. Copy any text from anywhere onto windows clipboard.

    2. Go to Dreamweaver code view (a .js file in my case)

    3. Click Ctrl + F to search in code. (The search field opens and selects; the entire last search string if one exists, or nothing if not.)

    4. Click Ctrl + V (or Shift+Ins) to paste from Windows clipboard into search field.

    5. (Error) The paste goes into the code window, overwriting whatever was selected there!

  20. Multiple Line Find

    If I highlight code, and I have 2 strings that are 100% Identical, and if that string contains "line feed or carrage return" will not search the document, notpad does, notepad++ does, vi does, emacs does, homesite did, crimson editor does, html kit does, kate does, kwrite does, jnote does, sublime does, eclipse does, atom does.

    So why doesn't dreamweaver?
