  1. Copy/Paste not working

    I can't copy or paste on the OSX Dreamweaver CC 2018.
    I tried deleting the temp cahce file, restarting DW, and closing the file within DW and opening it again.

    The problem is I can't copy FROM DW, and paste into anything else. Pasting within DW works.

      Hi all,

      We are sorry that you are facing issues with DW app.
      We are not able to see this issue at our end.
      For us to better investigate this issue, can you please provide us with answers to the following questions?

      1) What is the document view(full Code view or Live view or split code and live view) that you are copying from and pasting into?
      2) When does the issue start happening? Is it after you switch to another app and come back to DW or you minimise and maximize DW?
      3) Are the pages you are trying to copy from part of Local site root folder or remote site

      Thanks,
      Kratika

      Dreamweaver is showing "Unexpected token '1fr' at line xxx" when I use the fr unit in a css grid. The fr unit is valid and should not be throwing an error. I'm using version 18.2

      • 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…

            Hi,

            Thanks for reporting.
            Could you please share some more steps to reproduce the issue.
            1) Is it happening on creating a new BS4 page and adding the card-img class to a BS card
            2) What is the OS you are using

            Thanks

          • Code keeps disappearing

            Since the latest upgrade (2017.1), the code view keeps disappearing. I can't find which action makes it happen.

            Sometimes closing or opening windows helps, or closing program. I usually work in split view design/code. Switching views or to all code does not fix it.

            In any case it renders the program completely unusable.

            • high cpu usage Dreamweaver CC 2018 on Mid-2017 MacBook Pro running MacOS High Sierra

              • Live view not updating

                17.0.1 release. Live view seems to have stopped updating, at least regularly. Sometimes switching back and forth between design and live causes an update, sometimes it doesn't. Often the "refresh live view" menu item is grayed out, and even when it's not, clicking it often seems to make no difference. The attached screen shot clearly shows that the date of the "Book Discussion" shows as 18 March in "live" view but as 15 April in "code" view, and the "refresh" menu item is grayed out.

                  Thanks for reporting.
                  Do you still see this issue with latest Dreamweaver 19.0.
                  It can be downloaded from Creative cloud.
                  Please let us know if you still face the issue.

                • 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.

                      • 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!!!

                          Dreamweaver CC 2015.2 very slow on macOS Sierra 10.12.5 when opening files. Trying to open even a small file causes the CPU to spike! This needs to be fixed. CC 2015.2 is supposed to be supported on Sierra.

                            I've made an index.html file, which I can display in a browser.
                            It used to update when I refreshed the screen in the browser: but not anymore... It should update without refreshing, so that was already a bug, but one I could work around.

                            Now the browser refuses to update at all, even after emptying the cache (emptying the cache worked the first time, but not anymore).

                            So I made a new html file with just 1 paragraph of text (<p>test</p>).

                                The ftp/sftp connection fails after DW has been open for awhile. Was working fine all day, then when I returned after taking a 30-minute break, got an error message: "An ftp error occurred - cannot make connection to host. Your login or password is incorrect. Please check your connection information." Nothing has changed -- worked fine all day. It won't work again until after I close DW and restart it. I'm using version 19

                                  • Freeze on Window Switch

                                    When switching between windows, or programs (say over to photoshop), code view freezes and becomes unresponsive in the 2019 update and all other settings lag. I can still save, but nothing resolves short of quitting and relaunching program. Consistently experiencing this since update.

                                    Windows 10 OS

                                      When copy pasting a few items and switching between my desktop spaces on my Mac, selecting or typing code is weirdly blocked or something. It only lets me double click but single won't work

                                      • Dreamweaver 2019 v19 copy paste issue

                                        An odd issue that has occurred.
                                        I paste html into dreamweaver code view (from a CMS code view). I did a find and replace to remove "www" from a bunch of locations on the page. The changes can be seen in code view but not live/split view. Additionally, when trying to copy the code from code view (when you can see it's been successfully changed) copies the old non-changed code.

                                        I have tried copy/pasting even parts of the code and it always takes the old non-changed code.

                                        This appears to only happen randomly - most of the time it works…
