    • 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).

      • Code hinting in PHP limited to 13 items

        How to duplicate:

        class test {
        public $p;
        public $o;
        public $n;
        public $m;
        public $l;
        public $k;
        public $j;
        public $i;
        public $h;
        public $g;
        public $f;
        public $e;
        public $d;
        public $c;
        public $b;
        public $a;

        function aa(){
        }

        function bb(){
        }

        }

        $a = new test();

        When typing $a-> the code hints will display only from a to k. The limit is alphabetical and not declaration order.

          • Cursor position after search and replace

            After performing a search and replace on the selected text, the cursor moves to the top of the page instead of staying where it was. Annoying.

            • Ctrl+A selects ALL files instead of filename

              1) Click on any file in the Files tab
              2) It is now possible to edit the filename (see screenshot)
              3) Press "Ctrl+A" selected the complete filename in previous versions and in normal apps
              4) But instead, all files get selected (see screenshot) > Bug (1)
              5) What is even worse, clicking Esc does not even unselect this!
              6) Even clicking on a specific file does not change the selection, it is not possible to unselect this selection!

              And again: such behaviour should only ever be seen on BETA versions, this IS a beta version!!!

              • Compiled css file (from less) is not uploaded automatically

                When I create a less file, DW compiles an CSS file. IN my case in the same folder. But this compiled css file is not automaticaly uploaded tot the server. I do have this auto-upload feature enabled in the DW site settings. So I guess it should auto upload?

                    • Copy and paste issues

                      Results of copy and paste are mixed. Occassionally it will copy and paste the code, but more often it creates a copy of the file I'm working on in the file manager. It seems like the focus doesn't transfer between the file manager and the coding window.

                            When editing PHP with code hinting/suggestions enabled, select any tag (preferably one with additional/optional properties). After function selected, Code Library displays __halt_compilier() as the information for the selected function, every time!

                            We should receive a salary for all these bug reports, it's unacceptable.

                            • [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

                                    • <wbr> being read incorrectly by DW

                                      <wbr> is a standalone tag that does not open and therefore does not require a closing tag. DW Code View reports it as an error. Can this be fixed to allow the <wbr> tag to be used without error reporting? Thank you.

                                      • PHP DOMDocument autocomplete missing methods

                                        The autocomplete for PHP DOMDocument is missing multiple methods that was there in 2015.
                                        Compare the attached screenshots where i start to type "lo". In 2015 i get suggestion for loadHTML, but I don't get that in 2017.

                                        • Sass/SCSS partials save not compiling main file

                                          I'm working on a project with SCSS. In trying to use Dreamweaver for the CSS preprocessor, I've run across what I think is a bug.

                                          See attachment for how the folders/files are set up.

                                          When I update one of the partials (for example the utilities/_utilities.colors.scss) the style.scss is not compiling. Even thought style.scss is importing the partial. Only if I modify style.scss and save is then compiled into style.css automatically.

                                          I have the settings such that the /scss folder is selected as the source and the /css folder is set as the output.

                                          Is Dreamweaver not set up to recognize…
