  1. 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)

    • 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.

      • New version installed; Loosing previous settings!

        With every upgrade DreamWeaver seems to loose my previous settings: e.g. recognizing/opening .ini files; showing hidden files like .htaccess

        • Button in Design view missing value text

          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.

          • 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…

            • 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.

                        My host has upgraded openssh and Dreamweaver no longer connects via SFTP. Insecure ciphers or cipher mismatch.
                        I have tried other FTP software and they connect OK. Can this problem be fixed please?

                          • 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;

                            • Source formatting applied to mixed JavaScript and PHP code will destruct it

                              Example below shows JS code with PHP line. After source formatting, PHP code will be damaged. <? and ?> will be replaced by <(space)? and ?(space)>.

                                  • 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 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

                                      • 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.
