  1. Changing keyboard shortcuts still activates the old behavior

    Changing the keyboard shortcuts in preferences still activates the old behavior associated with that shortcut. For example, I like the old version of the find dialog so I removed the Ctrl+F on the default find and assigned it on Find and replace in files. But pressing Ctrl+F still activates the default find and you need to press Ctrl+F again to show the Find dialog. Ctrl+Shift+F will still activate the Find dialog even though I already removed in on the preferences.

    • PHP source formatting kills readabilty

      2 times applied source formatting makes PHP code difficult to read. There is example of problem. Original PHP code looks like this:

      class ExampleClass {

      private function brokenFormatting() {
      print("anything");
      }


      private function anotherMethod() {
      print("anything");
      }

      }

      After first source formatting it changes to this:

      class ExampleClass {

      private
      function brokenFormatting() {
      print( "anything" );
      }

      private
      function anotherMethod() {
      print( "anything" );
      }

      It looks awful but it is still readable, Notice that "private" keyword should not be in another line with function. I makes potential risk of loosing "private" when the method is copied. The situation gets…

        • Using fr units for the dimensions of a grid area gives errors

          Line 19 and 20 of the style sheet shown are giving errors unrelated to the context of the code. Dreamweaver's Quick Docs gives some more explanation about this notation (navigates to: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/grid-template-rows) and fr units should not be giving these errors.

          LiveView properly displays the webpage and the styling done by the CSS, however, the errors in the output console are invalid.

          ...
          19 grid-template-rows: 10% 1fr 1fr;
          20 grid-template-columns: 1fr 3fr 1fr;
          ...

          • Spell check dialog location

            When running spell check, if you reposition the dialog box, it will jump back to the default (inconvenient) location with each word it finds. The box should stay put. Version 18.0.10136

              • 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

                • 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.

                      • Class Selector is broken in the 2017 version

                        Clicking the Class selector on the properties panel displays the full list of classes as it has done for the past several versions, but selecting a class is now much more difficult.
                         
                        In the past, I could type the first letter of the style and the list would scroll to those styles that begin with that letter. This no longer works.
                         
                        Then I could use the mouse wheel to scroll to the class I wanted and click it. Scrolling no longer works.
                         
                        PgUp and PgDn don't work, either. Only the Up and Down arrow keys scroll the…

                        • Source Formatting Has Problems

                          In the latest Dreamweaver 2017, there are problems with Source Formatting.
                          1. Files of type *.php are formatted completely differently from files of type *.htm. When the PHP file is straight HTML, it should be able to be formatted the same as the HTML file.
                          2. My preference is to have the closing </p> tag on the same line. I've tried to modify the formatting (Edit Tag Libraries / No Line Breaks) to place the closing </p> tag on the same line, but in the *.php file it won't do this. The reformat continues to place the closing </p> tag…

                          • Tooltip Bug When Working With Tables

                            Still have this annoying bug when working with tables. Constantly getting a tooltip that says "Shift-drag to retain other column widths. Command-click to select all." This bug goes back to at least CS5. Screenshot attached.

                            • Find and Replace broken still

                              If I select find and replace with "entire current local site" option which I need to do on a very regular basis, Dreamweaver locks after the first result and I have to use Alt F4 or Task manager to kill Dreamweaver.

                              I have deleted cache file and restarted, but the same issue happens every time.

                              Operating system is Windows 10 and I'm using Dreamweaver CC 2019 (although 2018 is for some reason also still in my Adobe User files)

                                  DW 18.2 In Live view button correctly has (value) text but in design view the text is floating below the button and to the right. I reset all preferences (start with win+shift+ctrl). Went back to 18.1 same problem.

                                  DW 18.1 uninstalled and 17.5 now installed using CC and all is fine

                                  Device Surface Pro (Gen 5) with i5 and 8G RAM, 256G SSD. Just creating a page with a form and then insert a submit button into the form does NOT display correctly in DW18.2.

                                  • Windows DW 18.1 shows transparency gif background as black

                                    Inserting a GIF image with transparent background, DW renders its background as black.
                                    It shows correctly when previewing in Chrome and IE. And on macOS, DW 18.1 renders it correctly as well.
                                    Please refer to the attachments for the image and screen-shot.
                                    Is this a bug of DW on Windows?

                                    • DW Freeze ups when project include RxJS module

                                      I'm evaluating DW product to a number of users in my organization.

                                      There is show stopper problem where the whole application freezes,
                                      becomes unresponsive, for seconds or even minutes at a time with high CPU utilization.
                                      I've issolated the problem to using the very popular @reactivex/rxjs library that is used
                                      in Angular and many other libraries and frameworks.

                                      I've distilled the problem to a 17 line html file and 29 lines of Javascript to load and lighly use
                                      the RxJS library.

                                      I just downloaded the product, so I highly doubt the issue is based upon any changes I've made to…

                                          Hi,

                                          Thanks for reporting.
                                          We have logged an internal bug for clip-path property not showing as code hints in css. We will prioritise it update you once the bug is fixed.
                                          However, the shape-outside property is shown as a code hint in css. Please check with latest Dreamweaver 18.2.

                                          Thanks,
