  1. 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.

          • 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
              You can refer to the following MS article for more info on the same: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb787181(v=vs.85).aspx

              Next time Dreamweaver crashes, it will create a crash dump in the path provided in the registry.

              Once you have shared the crash dump, you can delete…

              • 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?

                    • 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…

                      • TLS1.2 support is not enabled.

                        Dreamweaver doesn't support TLS 1.2, but almost every server I work with these days requires it- and the rest will shortly. This makes the Dreamweaver site management and FTP transfers useless at this point. Why would you ignore for years this common issue and not support a common technology!

                        • DW CC 2015 No Longer Functioning

                          After recent cc update, 2015 does not work on laptop or desktop. I prefer the old version, 2018 far too buggy.

                            Finally removed library item from page and inserted the updated page to get things to work.

                            • Oversized UI

                              All of the user interface is OVERSIZED. Icons are too large, tabs are too large. There is no way to scroll the tabs left or right when there is no more room. DW 2017 had a smaller, tighter user interface. It looks like the resolution is off, showing everything TOO BIG. If the UI is not adjustable at least make a left to right scroll for the tabs.

                              • 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.

                                  • 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.…

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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!!!
