  1. Moving tabs doesnt work if tab goes outside of tab line

    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 2018 Crashes when scrolling with touchpad

      When using DW CC 2018 on my Dell Precision 5510 running Windows 10, the app keeps crashing. It appears to be doing so whenever I try to scroll using a two finger gesture on the laptop's touchpad.

      • Code selection seems to be broken

        Things are not selected cleanly, the start point for selection shifts randomly, and the selection randomly changes mid way through.

        Takes about 5-6 times to get an accurate enough selection, then need to move to keyboard to tidy it up.

        • code editing is not possible

          I frequently hand-code emailers which in my dreamweaver are one-page html documents.
          After upgrading to CC2018, when I now open such a simple html document with just a table in it, I cannot edit the html directly at all.

          What is happening. There is a QUICK EDIT option (right click on code area) - what is this and why is it "not available"?

          I am flabbergasted and annoyed at this bug (?) as I need to finish an emailer this afternoon and now cannot use a tool that I have used for almost 20 years.

          • Emmet doesn't work in the new 2018 version

            I have DW2018 on my computer, and I have found out that Emmet is now written into the software and is compatible with DW. Unfortunately, it isn't with DW2018, as I have it turned on and if I do a 'shortcut', and then press tab, I get nothing. I think that Adobe developers of Dreamweaver should really look at this bug as it would be useful to have this facility.

            • Real Time Preview mostly (!) not working

              It's a mess. Live preview shows more often the "sad" phone page with error message than the current file. Even restarting DW won't help in every case. It seems to have sth to do with frequent network changes. But that is my style of work: sometimes at home, sometimes at the customers office, sometimes abroad on train etc. Why can't there be classic preview additionally to the RTP, until you get that mess to work properly? Why do I need to restart DW that often?
              Would be great, to have it solved, as this is a great feature, that DW…

              • ㏄2018 SASS compling error, real time preview, copy error

                -When I use Japanese fonts as font family while using SASS it occurs error

                - Short cut key F9 doesn't work at all and SASS Compiling works only the first day I set "create new sites" on Dreamweaver.

                - Real Time Preview doesn't work and Dreamweaver is always needed to restart.

                - After updating CC2018 copying (ctrl+c) and EMMET sometimes doesn't work and I always have to restart Dreamweaver

                【日本語】
                - SASSでfont-family: で日本語フォントを使おうとするとエラー

                -コンパイル用のショートカットF9は全く効きません。SASSのコンパイルは「サイト」⇒「新規サイトを作成」からサイトを作成した日だけで後日編集しようとしても全くコンパイルされません

                -リアルタイムプレビューはエラーが毎回起きる。Dreamweaverを再起動すれば動くときもある

                -㏄2018になってからコピー(ctrl+c)とEmmet記法が使えない時がある。再起動をすれば直りますが、毎回再起動しないといけないのはきついです

                • Save password checkbox does not save passwords between sessions

                  My idea is to make the "Save password" box in the FTP dialog box actually save the password between DW CC sessions. While using the program, the password is saved and works repeatedly, but upon quitting and restarting, the saved password has been forgotten.

                  • Dreamweaver not starting (menus.xml)

                    Latest Dreamweaver CC 2018, fresh install.
                    When running it the first time it says like "There were errors when creating menus from the information found in the current menus.xml. Delete menus.xml and rename menus.bak to menus.xml" (but it doesn't tell where to find). But the menus.bak from the installationhas the same file size as menus.xml (it is actually the same file) and when renaming it, the error repeats of course.

                    Means, Dreamweaver won't start at all. DW deleted, fresh installation - still the same. DW then remains in the memory and has to be killed. Looks like a package error.…

                    • Find All And Select does not work with accented letters

                      "Find All And Select" function does not replicate on other selection the accented letters, e.g. "aéíóu" will be changed to "au" instead.

                      • Dreamweaver CC 2018 will not open.

                        I had the issue this morning after using it all day yesterday. Dreamweaver will not open. It shows the opening screen then says (Not Responding). I used Adobe to delete the program and reinstalled. Still the same. Cannot use the program. I am on Windows 10 using a PC

                        • MAJOR BUG - double click on a string, press CTRL+C to copy ends up selecting the WHOLE document

                          Do the following:
                          Open 2 documents in CODE view
                          Switch to document 2, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
                          Switch to document 1, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
                          repeat

                          The entire document ends up being selected as if ctrl+A was pressed, this causes major workflow problems when attempting to simply copy/paste strings across 2 documents.

                          Please fix this ASAP!!!

                              Hi,

                              Can you give us more details on the following-

                              1. Is the crash happening consistently? If yes, can you give us exact steps so that we can replicate the issue at our end? If no, then is there a specific file where it is happening- can you share that file with us?
                              2. Which platform?
                              3. Which Dw build are you using?
                              4. Can you send us the crash logs?

                              Regards,
                              Niharika Gupta

                            • This is the last bug I submit. You arent fixing shit and only making it worse

                              CTRL+F is now broke. It doesnt list options anymore. Only current document. Review my last 100 bug posts to see why I just give up with you Dreamweaver. I cant even double click a variable to select it for copy/paste or type a ' or " without it adding extra crap, then when I delete one of the extra craps, it deletes both, so I type like 5 strokes for nothing to add 1 character. I am so incredibly disappointed with this Dreamweaver. Its so frustrating.

                              • Git on WSL

                                Git integration currently doesn't work when the repository was setup, or used with, Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10.

                                The following error message appears when trying to access git through Dreamweaver:

                                "Dreamweaver could not locate Git client on your computer. Install Git and relaunch Dreamweaver to enable Git features. You can also specify a custom path in Preferences."

                                Specifying a custom path in Preferences does not resolve the issue. Even after install Git for Windows.

                                  I updated to the newest CC 2018 Version of DW, but unfortunatly I can no longer compile my SCSS files. There is an error in a Ruby File on saving/compiling:

                                  (the first line just states, that the files couldn't compile/import)

                                  The first time starting up, Windows Firewall asked to give access to DW and node.js and I clicked yes. I checked again and DW has rights to access the net. On saving the _scss file, it uploads it correctly, but the compiling process fails. The error message doesn't seem to be an error on my part. I tried…

                                    When I click to add a new hotspot on my imagemap, it doesn't create it anywhere near my cursor.

                                    • DW 2018 - CTRL+F should remember settings (filters, term, replace and open status).

                                      I work across multiple files all the time.

                                      If I set CTRL+F dialogue search filters to match case and whole word, it should remember this across all files (as it previously did before the DW Dev team abused it).

                                      It would be better still if the dialogue remained open across all files until closed (as it did previously). At the moment I have to CTRL+F on every file I wish to search on, paste in the search word/phrase every time then click to display filters and then click to select filters.

                                      This isn't efficient, stop inventing new ways to waste…

                                      • bootstrap css and js files not linked correctly in dreamweaver cc 2017

                                        When using bootstrap to set up a new html page, css and js files do not link correctly. My site is defined correctly in advance.

                                        Instead of link to css file like css/bootstrap.css I get <link href="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/jennifer/Desktop/testfolder r/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet"> My site is properly defined but dreamweaver doesn't link the files that way.

                                        How do I fix this?
