Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. Expand/Collapse -- Unable to Expand Collapsed Section

    If find that I will have sections of code that I have collapsed that will no longer expand when clicking on the expand/collapse arrow.

    See "Collapsed code block.png" -- This collapsed block of code can't be expanded except by clicking on the gray code snippet that shows what's been collapsed.

    Clicking on the gray snippet expands the code but the expand/collapse arrow does not change. See "Expanded via clicking gray snippet.png".

    Generally, I've encountered this bug in multiple PHP files that I'm writing. Clicking on the gray box that shows a snippet of the code will expand it, but the…

  3. Build 81 Prerelease: Usability of Find and Replace is worse

    Cmd- F will open just the search input, but you are not able to navigate by tab to replace input, because it is hidden. You always have to click on expand before replace input appears, and "search by regex", "uppercase/lowercase" is hidden. I cannot see what search I will perform. Possibility to save and load search expressions (most useful with regex) is gone. Additionally, Find and replace in documents and other searches were moved to another menu. Why? Put it all back in one place.
    All these changes made nothing better in usability, it hinders my work.

  4. Dreamweaver crashes when updating git submodules

    Dreamweaver 2017.1 build 9583
    OSX 10.11.16

    Dreamweaver is open and files window is connected to via FTP to web server.

    Bash terminal open to manage git repo, connects to git server.

    When I pull updates for submodules from git server, Dreamweaver crashes and reports FTP error connecting to web server. Dreamweaver must be force closed and restarted.

    Two different apps going to two different servers, so should not be effecting each other but the issue is repeatable.

    Hi,

    We were not able to reproduce this issue at our end. Can you please share a snapshot/video clip demonstrating the issue when it is happening?

    Is it happening with a specific file? Which version of Dw are you using?

  7. Find and Replace in Files not working

    Find and Replace in Files not working. When I try to use it, nothing happens.

    The latest version also puts the Find GUI in two places which is confusing. Sometimes it's at the bottom of the page, sometimes it's a pop-up window.

  9. You are KILLING me without Find/Replace.

    Why would you release an "UPDATE" with such a glaring flaw???

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to continue my workflow when this basic feature is nonfunctional in SO many ways.

    It is absolutely ridiculous that my only immediate option is "replace all". This is NOT an "upgrade"

    Please let us know if you’re still having trouble finding the Folder & Site search options. And also, the replace options which can now be enabled using the Ctrl + H shortcut.

  11. Bug & Suggesstion: FTP/SFTP connection fails after changing password

    I changed my account password on my hosting server, and after doing that, Dreamweaver would only intermittently login, it seemed to struggle getting and holding a connection.

    I tried going to: Site > Advanced > Remove Connection Scripts and then re-logging in, and it seemed to be working for a while then failed again ... meanwhile, FileZilla has no such issues with exactly the same connection (although admittedly the host provides a connection script which can be imported into FileZilla and a few other FTP client application options.

    SUGGESTION: given the popularity of WYSIWYG IDEs like Dreamweaver, it would make…

  13. Find next

    In the latest Dreamweaver I can't find the "find next" under "find and replace" only "replace all." It was in previous versions.

    Dreamweaver's weakest feature has long been editing pasted documents that contain lots of hyphenation. When trying to use "spell check" there are many ridiculous suggestions, none of which are the obvious one to just remove the hyphen.

  16. Real-Time Preview does not work

    I've made an index.html file, which I can display in a browser.
    It used to update when I refreshed the screen in the browser: but not anymore... It should update without refreshing, so that was already a bug, but one I could work around.

    Now the browser refuses to update at all, even after emptying the cache (emptying the cache worked the first time, but not anymore).

    So I made a new html file with just 1 paragraph of text (<p>test</p>).
    If this file open and 'focused' in DW (in Code View, Live View or Design View) I get the…

  17. Find and Replace problems

    While you fixed a large problem with the Find and Replace... I still can't immediately access the find box after I do a search. I have to click the find box twice to do another search.

    Sometimes I have to completely get out of the F/R box, then restart the find and replace to use it. It's still a pain.

    PS... PLEASE leave things alone that work well. The Find and Replace in DW2015 was great.

  18. Code Coloring missing in Preferences - Find and Replace missing functions

    The code coloring we were used to have since the days of Macromedia is missing. This I cannot consider an idea, but a bug. Please restore that function back.

    Also the find and replace function misses to find (1 instance!) instead of all, and the find next.

  19. The scroll bar does not smoothly scroll in full design view!!!

    While I'm working in Full design view the scroll bar to move down the page at the right side of the window does not smoothly scroll. When I scroll the design doesn't move and then if I scroll further it will jump all the way to the bottom of the design. Then when I scroll up it jumps to the middle or top of the design, almost like it's not in sync with the scroll bar. Code and Split view scroll bars work fine.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting. We are not seeing this issue at our end.
    Could you please check if the issue is reproducible with latest Dreamweaver 19.0, which can be downloaded from Creative cloud.

    Please let us know if you still face the issue.
    If it is reproducible, it would be helpful if you could share a video of the issue.

    Thanks
