    • Code hints showing up when switched off in preferences

      I am resubmitting this bug because it is not fixed, but someone marked it as fixed:

      https://dreamweaver.uservoice.com/forums/382851-adobe-dreamweaver-bugs/suggestions/19831105-code-hints-showing-up-when-switched-off-in-prefere

      Creative cloud says dreamweaver is up to date.

      over a month and this is still not fixed.

      • Disable code hints not working

        I used the instructions from this page, https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/code-hints.html , without any luck. I added the PHP line to delay the hint with a very long delay time, and I've also unchecked the "show hints" in the preferences. However I'm still seeing hints. Please fix this. When hints show it messes up my code, and if I'm selecting to NOT show any, then none should show at all. NONE.

            • PHP Code Hinting Crashes the app

              Dreamweaver CC 2017.1

              Working on a PHP class, started typing "private", the code hinting comes up very briefly then the whole app crashes. It's done this multiple times now. Turning code hinting off fixes the issue, no more crashes, but I'd like to use code hinting for some things....

                • Component not fully compatible

                  I have been using Bootstrap for some time without any problems, but starting yesterday (7-9-17) I am getting an error message that says Component not fully compatible with current Bootstrap CSS/JS file (lower than v 3) etc.
                  This in spite of the fact that I am using 3.3.7 for both files. I have tried inserting components into files that I build previously and the same problem happens with those files, even though the error did not happen in the past.
                  Any ideas?

                  • CC2017.5 Linting Not Functioning Fully

                    In my CC2017.5, the Linting isn't bringing attention to missing alt attributes in image tags even though the setting "img-alt-require" is set to true.

                    In CC2015.2 the line numbers turn orange. In CC2017.5, it does nothing.

                    • Search cannot find two consecutive spaces in code

                      In the new search-and-replace introduced in Build 9583, I can no longer search code for occurrences of two consecutive spaces (to replace them with a single space). I get the error message: "One of the text search fields is blank. Enter the text you want to find." Previous builds allowed this search.

                      Another broken feature of the new search: if I am viewing a page in Design View, and do a search, this build switches to Split View and I have to manually switch back to Design View. This is VERY, VERY frustrating behavior! Please fix it.

                      • $_SERVER['../PHP_SELF']

                        The following PHP code: $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']

                        ends in : $_SERVER['../PHP_SELF'] after moving his file path.

                        Could you please optimize the path corrections and let "PHP_SELF" be as a variable and not to replace it as a path like "../PHP_SELF" ?

                        BTW: the new DW Version 2017 is so slow on my brandnew Dell XPS with Întel Core 17. Often it needs 20 Seconds to switch between Code and preview, or to switch to another opened file.
                        Why is it 20x slower then DW2016?

                          • Code View Pane Issues

                            On Windows 7 64-bit and the latest Adobe CC Dreamweaver I find the scrollbar to the right of the code pane a total pain in the @$$. It's buggy AF. How so? When I click on an element in the WYSIWYG view the code pane jumps the the applicable line of code and the scrollbar adjusts. When I click to move the scrollbar to up or down (because the code pane rarely, rarely displays the whole block of code - as it used to - a whole separate issue) the scrollbar jumps and the code pane shoots up or down…

                              Hi,

                              We have fixed this issue for the next Dw release, you can verify it now if you are a Dw Pre-release user or you can verify it later when we make the release public.

                              Thanks for all your support and feedback.

                              Regards,
                              Niharika Gupta

                            • No way to stop search if lots of files selected

                              To reproduce:

                              1. Select a site directory with lots of files
                              2. Do a search
                              3. Now have to wait for the search to finish (~5 minutes) because you cannot stop the search while it is running.

                              So annoying when you accidentally have the wrong folder selected. Previous version you could stop the search while it was running.

                              And no - I can't switch back to the old version (workplace policy).

                                • Quick Edit: New Rule button doesn't work if no rule already exists

                                  In an HTML file, if you place the cursor in a tag, class or id and hit quick edit you can edit your CSS inline without switching to the CSS file. If there are no existing rules for a tag, class or id, the inline editor pops up and displays a "New Rule" button. Clicking on this button does nothing if a rule doesn't already exist. If a rule does already exist then the button will create an additional one.

                                  I think the whole point of the button is to create a new rule especially if one does not already…

                                    • After updating the Dreamweaver app yesterday the 19th december, I am unable to use live preview...The software was working ok before.

                                      You tried to access an external HTML page, which can not be opened on the device for preview. Open the page in Dreamweaver to preview the page on the device.

                                      • [Bug] Copying a code block causes it to disappear.

                                        There is a strange bug in the new Dreamweaver. Whenever I try to select a code block, then click copy, and change windows and back again, it removes the code and replaces it with a "-".

                                        Video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwg8MLr2IJQ&feature=youtu.be

                                        Also, when you use the bottom toolbar to select code blocks, this highlighted section needs to appear in the middle of the code section. Often times it can be selected outside the view area and you struggle to find it, you have to scroll either up or down to find it.

                                        Dreamweaver CC 2017
                                        MacOS Sierra 10.12.2

                                        Cheers

                                        • Find and replace character limit

                                          Dreamweaver CC 2017 is cutting off the find string after a certain number of characters. There used to be no character limit. Please remove the limit.
