    • BUG: DWR hangs when cancelling an FTP operation and can not close the file activity window

      Watch this video:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU66mnuqlhQ
      Entire problem is covered in video

      Problem is intermittent.

      To reproduce set up the following:
      SFTP connection
      2 servers, one for testing and one for live

      then just upload files...
      Eventually the FTP window will hang,
      clicking on CANCEL causes the file activity window to be STUCK.

      The cancel button is then grayed out,
      can not disconnect from FTP,
      can not cancel operation,
      DWR must then be FORCE quit.

      Using DWR V 18.2 build 10165
      PC, Windows 7

      No firewall,
      1GBPS connection
      direct connection (not wifi)

        Hi,

        Apologies you are still seeing the issue.
        We’ll need some more info from you to help determine the cause.

        Can you share your FTP log from before/when/after it hangs
        Go to Site > Advanced > FTP Log to display this information.

        Thanks

      • Latest Dreamweaver Doesn't Open

        Latest Dreamweaver CC 2018 opens to a completely blank gray screen. All other CC apps work. Uninstall and reinstall gives no change. Installing version 18.1 works. Windows 10. Please fix.

              Hi,

              Thanks for reporting. We are not able to reproduce the issue at our end.
              Is the issue reproducible while creating a new Page in Dreamweaver like starter template from File→new→starter templates.
              If it is specific to any document could you please share it on kragarwaatadobedotcom

              Thanks

            • :root

              Is Dreamweaver on the way out? It produces errors, but if it were updated wouldn't, in CSS such as:

              :root {
              --blue: #007bff;
              }

                • Assets in Library Not Updating Pages

                  When I make a Change in the Asset Library, it appears to update my pages. But the pages are not updated.

                  The same is true if I try Tools > Libraries > Update Pages. It steps through all the pages but nothing is updated.

                  But if I go to a specific page where the Asset is used and Tools > Libraries > Update This Page the page it updates the page.

                  This has created a huge maintenance problem for me. I have to do a search to find where the asset is used and update each page individually.

                  • import from a word doc says "it would take too long to import"

                    Too long for who? This message is ridiculous ... If want to create a large document it should just do it...please fix this antiquainted nonsense.
                    Abobe needs to much better align its products and interfaces with microsoft office. It's just a pain to use.

                      Hi,

                      Thanks for reporting.
                      What is the Dreamweaver version are you using.

                      The functionality to import word document is for a large size document on import, Dreamweaver gives a dialog saying "The document you selected is large and will take some time to import. To continue click ok , to cancel click cancel.

                      If we press ok then the document gets loaded.
                      Is the functionality blocking you somewhere while importing the document

                      Thanks

                    • SASS compile issue when using @import

                      recently I started getting an error, when I go to compile a scss file that contains @import in it I get a `Segmentation fault` error..

                      looks like it is an issue in gem2.4.0..

                      It compiles fine when i remove all the @import lines

                      It also works when i am compiling it from my watch server command line `sass --watch . --style compact`

                      It is so much easier if it was working in Dreamweaver.

                      I am running Windows 10.

                        • SFTP Not Working

                          Dreamweaver does not work with SFTP. I can connect but am only able to access the directory that stores my profile, meanwhile I am able to connect and view all files using Filezilla. For the cost of the program and the fact that more and more sites / hosts are going the secure route, this feature should be a priority.

                            • DW CC crashes on closing file using command-w shortcut

                              DreamWeaver CC crashes and quits after the simple action of closing an html file using the shortcut keys command-w.
                              The problem has persisted for 10 years in various versions of DW, on six different Apple machines.
                              There is no other software I use that ever crashes like DW has done for a decade.

                              • Frequent Crashes DW v.18.1 build 10155

                                I wish I could say there was one action that caused each "crash" but it seems to be a very general bug.
                                Dreamweaver freezes up and has to be force-quit and restarted several times in a half-day work time (4 hours). Fortunately, I haven't lost any data, files, or sites. So I guess I'm luckier than some.

                                  Hi,

                                  Thanks for reporting, could you please share steps to reproduce the crash so that we can look into it. Also, please share the crash logs.

                                  To get a crash dump, below are the steps to follow

                                  Press Win+R and enter regedit and press Enter key to open Registry editor
                                  Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\
                                  Create a new key LocalDumps
                                  Inside LocalDumps create a new Expandable String value and name it DumpFolder and provide path of the folder on your desktop where you want the dump to created.
                                  Create a DWORD 32Bit value and name it DumpType and provide 1 as the value.
                                  Close Registry Editor

                                  Hi,

                                  The new update has made it almost impossible to move tabs around by dragging them.

                                  If you drag them and stay within the ~20px of the tab bar, you can reorder them.

                                  If however your mouse goes below or above the tab bar, the tab detaches and when you put it back into the tab bar, it goes on the end.

                                  If you look at the image, if I place the tab where the red arrow points, it should sit at that position in the tab bar. But because i dragged my mouse down a little, it will go…

                                    • Dreamweaver CC 18.1 <header> tag issues

                                      Dreamweaver CC 18.1 keeps auto-closing a header tag by moving the existing </header> from the top of the page down to the bottom between the </body> and </html> tags and popping up an error notification about the change. I have moved the file to the correct place in the document saved, put, etc. but every time I re-open the file it does the same thing.

                                      • High Sierra issue

                                        I have just updated to high sierra 10.13.3 (17D102) on my macbook pro and am having issues starting Dreamweaver (all versions). It basically hangs when Initialising files on start up. Are there any fixes i can apply that would sort this out?
