  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

  2. Error for fr units in CSS grids

    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

  3. Apply Source Formatting Removes Spaces Around Tags

    My tag library is set to "No line breaks" for certain tags like <a>, <strong>, and <span>. When I apply source formatting, DW CC 2019 removes all the spaces on both sides of the tag and its closing tag. So this:
    <p> Lorem ipsum <strong>dolor</strong> sit amet elit</p>

    Becomes this:
    <p> Lorem ipsum<strong>dolor</strong>sit amet elit</p>

    thereby squishing ipsumdolorsit into one word.

  4. Apply source formatting messing up my php

    The following valid php:

    <?php

    while ( $myrow = mysqli_fetch_array( $result ) ) {
    $caId = $myrow['caId'];
    $guildId = $myrow[ 'guildId' ];
    $caName = $myrow[ 'caName' ];
    $caType = $myrow[ 'caType' ];
    $caCommand = $myrow[ 'caCommand' ];
    $caMessage = $myrow[ 'caMessage' ];

    ?>

    turns into the following invalid php after apply source formatting. Notice the spaces and or linebreaks inserted before and after MySQL field names inside single quotes.

    <?php

    while ( $myrow = mysqli_fetch_array( $result ) ) {
    $caId = $myrow[ '
    caId ' ];
    $guildId = $myrow[ '
    guildId ' ];
    $caName = $myrow[ '
    caName ' ]; …

  5. Source formatting Not Obeying Settings In Tag Libraries

    Example with P tage set to: line breaks before and after and strong tag set to: NO line breaks:

    <p>this a <strong>test</strong></p>

    is chnaged to <p>this a <strong>test</strong>
    </p>

    By source formatting.

    **Note** closing P tage is put a new line which is NOT correct

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. Apply source formatting breaks <a> tags when next to each other.

    When there ara a couple <a> html tags next to each other like

    <a name="defaultadvancedaliasescharts" id="defaultadvancedaliasescharts"></a>
    <a name="aaCharts" id="aaCharts"></a>

    and I apply source formatting, it becomes the following which breaks both of them. In first <a> tag it changes the opening <a to < a and closing </a> to < /a>. In second <a> tag it changes opening <a by adding a line break and tab before the a and like the first <a> tag changes the closing </a> to < /a>.

    < a name = "defaultadvancedaliasescharts"
    id = "defaultadvancedaliasescharts" > < /a> <
    a name = "aaCharts"
    id =…

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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!!!

  17. 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.

  18. Source formatting forces line break in PHP file

    When working in a PHP file, if a nested HTML element's closing tag is immediately followed by the closing tag of its parent element, the parent's closing tag is forced to a new line when source formatting is applied. For example,

    <p>This is a <a>link</a></p>

    becomes

    <p>This is a <a>link</a>
    </p>

    This bug occurs regardless of the elements involved.

  19. F8 Files Gone!

    The Files Window (f8) will disappear, I have to reset the workspace to get it back.

    What happens is this, I press f8, upload a few items then close it out by press the "close" X tab. When I try and get the window back by pressing f8 and it shows up for a second then jumps back down and disappears.

    The only thing that will bring back the F8 (files) window is the workspace reset.

    Please fix, it's driving me nuts.

  20. Expand/Collapse -- Unable to Expand Collapsed Section

    Clicking on the gray snippet expands the code but the expand/collapse arrow does not change. See "Expanded via clicking gray snippet.png".
