  1. 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,…

        • New find and replace: not good

          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?

                • php code hinting in multi-line strings

                  Steps to replicate:

                  1. open php document in codeview.
                  2. create a multi line string variable.
                  3. somewhere in the multiline string, between text characters (not on an empty line, press enter and the code hints show up.

                  This is really annoying, especially when trying to tab a line across with a big block covered with the code hints that wont even work in a string.

                  See attached screenshot

                  • 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.

                      • Server behaviours not works with 17.1 version

                        In the latest Dreamweaver version (17.1) the Bindings Panel no longer works, and Database Connections don't show in the Database Panel. Also, it crashes when you try to create a new connection from within the Recordset Command.

                        • 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.

                            • File > New > HTML ... fails!

                              I don't remember when we had the last update to Dw. I do know, though, that I cannot create a new HTML file right now. When I click the Create button, nothing happens.

                              Funny that, if I highlight the new CSS file option instead of HTML; then, click on the Create button, Dw creates the new CSS file just fine.

                              Not sure how to submit a log to help with finding the bug.

                              Running macOS 10.12.4 stable.

                              Thanks.

                                • New find and replace: alt+tab doesnt work if in find menu

                                  On Windows 10 in dreamweaver with the new search. This bug relates to the inline search (for current document search) menu only. Steps to replicate:

                                  1. Open dreamweaver and one other application (to alt-tab to).
                                  2. Open a document in code view.
                                  3. Press ctrl+f or go to menu: find -> Current document.
                                  4. Press alt+tab to go to other document. This is the bug: Does not go to other document, just hides the inline search bar.

                                  Happens if you have or haven't searched from the search bar.

                                  You can now press alt+tab many times and nothing happens. To get…

                                  • ファイルパネルでファイル・フォルダ名を変更できない

                                    ファイルパネルでファイル一覧を「F5」キーで更新した後、「F2」キーでファイル・フォルダ名の変更が出来なくなる。

                                    この状態の時、キーボードの矢印キーで他ファイル・フォルダを選択しても、同じ状態(変更できない)。

                                    マウスで選択し直すと、変更できるようになる。

                                    • Insert > Table tables show strange behaviors

                                      If you use Insert > Table to add a table to a page, the code appears correct. Here's an example:

                                      <table>
                                      <tbody>
                                      <tr>
                                      <td></td>
                                      <td></td>
                                      </tr>
                                      </tbody>
                                      </table>

                                      The above is correct table code. However, if you then use Insert > Image to place an image in the leftmost cell of the top row, here is what Dreamweaver does. It closes the table, places the image outside the tags, and creates another table. This is copied and pasted code.

                                      <table width="95%" border="1">
                                      <tbody>
                                      <tr>
                                      <td>&nbsp;</td>
                                      </tr>
                                      </tbody>
                                      </table>
                                      <img src="images/0001_PWU_Black_hat_GA12_tif_large.jpg" width="400" height="400" alt=""/>
                                      <table width="95%" border="1">
                                      <tbody>
                                      <tr>
                                      <td>&nbsp;</td>
                                      <td>&nbsp;</td> …

                                      • cursor

                                        When you change from code view to css view (and vice-versa) your initial scroll position is not where the cursor is. if you press the left or right arrow key, it will jump up or down to the cursor position, but this is inconvenient every time you change view.

                                        It seems to scroll to the same point as your last view, which is not the scroll position where you left off.

                                        I've used most of the different versions of Dreaweaver and this is a new problem.
