Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. html file extension

    On macOS it is very easy to save an HTML file without the .html extension. DW isn't smart enough to correct this oversight.

    If you create a new HTML by File > New then choose the first document type HTML and then finalise with Create you are placed into a new untitled HTML document.

    When you attempt to save on macOS you will first see the text field for the file name with selection highlighting. The default filename and extension is highlighted. Immediately typing anything will overwrite both the file name and the extension. So you might type, "cool-site" hoping…

  2. 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.

  3. SFTP Bug

    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?

  4. 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;
    ...

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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,…

  18. 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…

  19. 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>.

  20. color picker doesn't show

    Color picker does not show when right -> code hint tools -> color picker. The only way it works is if I'm in html mode and start typing something like <font color=" and then the hover box comes up and I click it and I get it. But I can't open it on demand.
