  1. 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.

    • In PHP source, autocomplete choices for $_SERVER cannot be selected

      After typing $_ser (or more), DW correctly supplies $_SERVER, and when you accept that entry, DW correctly shows the available members of the $_SERVER array; however, there is no way to select the desired index from the list.

      • Dreamwrecker 2018 PHP Auto-Suggest has died(ish)

        Ok so in previous 2017 versions the auto-suggest for certain types of syntax was poor (would suggest options that weren't relevant to what was being typed).

        In 2018 it doesn't even bother highlighting or changing as you type.

        Type in DW:
        $_SERVER[

        And then type anything, e.g. re (start of REMOTE_ADDR)

        Dreamwrecker will not highlight/drilldown to any suggestions. Previously in 2017, Dreamwrecker made an effort to give the wrong suggestions, now it can't be bothered.

        • Table Commands missing entirely

          I have a table that I want to remove columns from. I click in a field and select Edit -> Table only to find all of the options greyed out.

          • Can't type in code view inside empty, editable region

            This seems to be a persisting problem from Dreamweaver CC 2017, where you can't type inside the tag shown below:

            <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="head" -->*** In earlier versions you were able to add code here ****<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->

            When I try typing inside that empty editable region, nothing happens.

            Dreamweaver 18.0
            Version 10136

                • Root relative image links do not preview in code view hover

                  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"'.

                  • Detached Code Inspector Panel Cannot Gain App Focus

                    I thought I'd wait and see if this went away - but it looks like it might not even be on the radar.

                    If you use the detached Code Inspector panel, clicking within the code area does not allow the app to regain focus.

                    So, specifically, if you have a Word document open and currently in focus, and you're copy/pasting text into the Code Inspector panel - upon clicking in the text area of the Code Inspector panel, the Word document will remain as the focused application.

                    Two odd things: you can fully interact with the Code Inspector text area,…

                        In the last update the find and replace is now at the bottom, but the option to replace in "open documents" or in "folder" is gone. I have to open a new window call "Find and replace in files", this windows as soon as I hit "Find All" closes and I have to open it again to replace or do any othe action. It is really not user friendly!!! This window cannot be glued on Dreamweaver and stays flotting or closes. I really hate it, it takes me more time to do the same actions. Please bring back a complete…

                        • CSS Designer panel duplicating keyboard strokes

                          In Dreamweaver CC 2017.5 on Mac Sierra 10.12.5 when editing fields in the CSS Designer Properties, clicking on the field and entering the first numeric character it is duplicated. Eg. enter 30 and the result is 330. I'm constantly having to backtrack and delete the redundant character.

                          • Ctrl-Z, Ctrl-Y in Search-Box no more possible?!

                            In Dw 2015 it was possible to at least undo the search term, meaning it was useful as some kind of memory for the search terms.
                            now it's not possible.

                            I mean, look at notepad++, they have a list of all ur search terms u ever used, what are u doing with the 20 Bugs i pay/mth? ;)

                            Also it was possible to search in all open documents, now i gotto to search for a keyword manually in every single document!! - this is terrible, backwards? why?

                                • Please bring back "folder selections" to find & replace

                                  selecting/checking several folders within the the chosen folder was the only improvement in the last find & replace. I am glad, that you changed all the existing find & replace bugs, but in your last update you also deleted the option to check several folders... I cannot find this option anymore, also in the extend find & replace (ctrl+shift+F) it is gone. Please bring that feature back, because it is shortening the search time a lot and I can do replacements on several harddrives at the same time e.g.

                                  Thank you!

                                    • Change search & replace shortcut not working at all

                                      I changed via the menu the shortcut for the Search and replace window to Ctrl + F instead of the Ctrl + Shift + F.

                                      We can see in the Search menu that the shortcuts have changed but the shortcuts are still the same when pressing keys. Even after a reboot.

                                      • Apply Source Formatting incorrectly adding white space inside textarea containing php

                                        In Dreamweaver CC2017 build 9314 if I enter the following code:

                                        <textarea name="fieldName"><?php echo $fieldName; ?></textarea>

                                        It looks and works fine but if I go to Edit > Code > Apply Source Formatting (which I want to do for the rest of the document) it adds unwanted white space inside the textarea, see attachment

                                        Which of course can be an issue. For example in cases where the textarea is used to allow users to update a database record it adds white space within the textarea before and after their echoed data and if they don't delete it each time before…

                                        • While executing onLoad in DevicePreviewBridging.html, a JavaScript error occured.

                                          I've begin to receive an error when I launch Dreamweaver:

                                          While executing onLoad in DevicePreviewBridging.html, a JavaScript error occured.

                                          I click ok, and am able to proceed. I haven't yet discovered any issues from that error. Although I don't use the Device Preview.
