  1. Quick Edit: New Rule button doesn't work if no rule already exists

    In an HTML file, if you place the cursor in a tag, class or id and hit quick edit you can edit your CSS inline without switching to the CSS file. If there are no existing rules for a tag, class or id, the inline editor pops up and displays a "New Rule" button. Clicking on this button does nothing if a rule doesn't already exist. If a rule does already exist then the button will create an additional one.

    I think the whole point of the button is to create a new rule especially if one does not already…

    • Copy/Cut and Paste Bug

      Cut and Paste and Copy and Paste fail at times. I'll copy the text in the source code, try to paste and it ends up copying and pasting the actual file. So I thought perhaps I was not clicking on the text, so i click it again, then used the mouse to copy and it still wouldn't work.

        • Closing Coldfusion tags dont always use the correct closing tag

          if I let it automatically close ColdFusion tags it uses </cfelse> to close a <cfif> tag. The same happens for <cfquery> tags, if there is a <cfqueryparam> tag it inserts a </cfqueryparam>.

          • 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.

            • Code view freezes while design view continues to work

              I've been having code view freeze today as I run some updates on my clients HTML. Closing the window and creating a new document doesn't resolve the issue.

              Video of the issue is attached.

              • Important keyboard shortcuts not working in CC 2017 on Mac OS

                Since updating Dreamweaver yesterday some common shortcuts stopped working both in code and design view:

                - Save [Cmd + S]
                - Copy [Cmd + C]
                - Undo [Cmd + Z]
                - Redo [Cmd + Y]

                Adding alternative shortcuts in the Keyboard Shortcuts menu is not working either.

                Please fix asap, it's impossible to work effectively otherwise!

                  • Unable to switch off pop-up after paste

                    using 2017.0.1 under mac os Sierra. Working in php file. If I cut or copy a line of text and then paste it elsewhere I get an unwanted pop-up menu every time (see https://forums.adobe.com/message/9269015#9269015 for screen grab). Code hint options on or off makes no difference.

                    • Split View: Double-Click on Items in Design/Live View Should Bring Line to Center of Code View

                      Having the line of code appear at the very bottom of the code view window is inconvenient. We can't see the lines below it without clicking inside the code view pane and then scrolling. That's a lot of effort for a quick check on a line of code.

                      • 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> …

                        • Apply source formatting to PHP code destruct it

                          Whene PHP code starts with
                          <?
                          .....
                          ?>

                          then after source formatting <? is replaced by < ? (a space betwwen < and ?). In consequence, syntax highlighting shows bugs and PHP script will not working on server.

                          • PHP Code Hinting/Suggestions gives incorrect Suggestions

                            Type
                            $_SERVER['

                            And then type re (start of REMOTE_ADDR)

                            Dreamweaver offers HTTP_REFERER as the closest match.

                            And then type rem (again as in REMOTE_ADDR)

                            Dreamweaver offers REQUEST_METHOD as the closest match.

                            Start again with $_SERVER['

                            Type ph (as in PHP_SELF)

                            Dreamweaver offers HTTP_HOST as closest match.

                            How did this release (2017) of Dreamweaver go soooo wrong since 2015?

                            • 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…

                              • Using <> in ASP screws up Code Colouring

                                Hello,
                                I have noticed that if I use <> in a line of ASP code, then the code colouring for the rest of the page is all screwed up.

                                I have attached 2 screenshots which show this.

                                In one screenshot, I have a few lines, one of which has an <> in it (a not equal to operator), and then in the second screenshot, I have replaced this with an = and you see that the code colouring is fine again. (This is just an example - the version of the code with = wouldn't actually do what I wanted…

                                • PHP Auto Quotes Insertion Incorrect/Bug

                                  Consider this PHP code.

                                  ->td('<div align="center"><a href=" " title="View Order">');

                                  I want to insert PHP code for the href tag value

                                  So I begin by inserting a single (') quote between the two double quotes followed by a period/fullstop to concatenate.

                                  ->td('<div align="center"><a href=" '. " title="View Order">');

                                  I then insert another single quote to carry on the string. Dreamweaver inserts two single quotes, effectively closing the breakout and opening it again causing an error. So you end up with

                                  ->td('<div align="center"><a href=" '. ' ' " title="View Order">');

                                  Instead of

                                  ->td('<div align="center"><a href=" '. ' " title="View Order">');

                                  This…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Img editing doesn't work properly.

                                      In the properties panel, split view and code view, when i select a jpg file, if i click in the Ps edit icon nothing happens, i think that it might open the image in Photoshop to allow me to modify it. I have setted up my preferences to File types .jpg must open adobe photoshop cc 2015.5.

                                      I think that all the commands about img editing is not working well.

                                      • Drag selected Text and Copy with pressing CTRL - not working!

                                        There is another Thread like this, but with SHIFT instead CTRL. Therefore i open another.

                                        Anyway, here is the URL: https://dreamweaver.uservoice.com/forums/382851-adobe-dreamweaver-bugs/suggestions/17089312-shift-drag-drop-does-not-work

                                        I think it's the same Problem.
                                        ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Here it is

                                        By pressing CTRL and THEN drag the selected code/text everything is okay but the usual way is first drag selected text and WHILE DRAGGING press CTRL - now a small PLUS character should be visible - but there is no PLUS and the text is moved instead of copied.

                                        This behavior is absolute standard in all text editing tools and editors and DW2017 can not do this.

                                        This is…

                                        • 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.
