  1. Dreamweaver CC 2018 Crashes when scrolling with touchpad

    When using DW CC 2018 on my Dell Precision 5510 running Windows 10, the app keeps crashing. It appears to be doing so whenever I try to scroll using a two finger gesture on the laptop's touchpad.

    • Can't undo in current file if changes made to related php file

      Hi,

      If trying to undo changes made in a file, you are stuffed if you made changes in another file.

      Steps to recreate:

      1. Open your top level file which includes a second level file.
      2. Open the second level file.
      3. Make changes in your top level file, save file.
      4. Switch to second level file, make changes in second level file.
      5. Switch back to top level file.
      6. Press ctrl+z to undo the change you made in the top level in step 3. This is where the error occurs. It switches back to the second level file…

      • In PHP source, autocomplete choices for $_SERVER cannot be selected

        After typing $_ser (or more), DW correctly supplies $_SERVER, and when you accept that entry, DW correctly shows the available members of the $_SERVER array; however, there is no way to select the desired index from the list.

            • 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.

                • find replace

                  The ONLY reason I still use Dreamweaver is because of its excellent find/replace: I can replace and add line breaks, tabs, etc., simply by copying and pasting into the replace window. I have to shift frequently between HTML, YAML, markdown, and Wordpress, and the excellent find/replace in Dreamweaver was a lifesaver.

                  I updated, and it's GONE. I have to revert my version because I'm crippled without the full find/replace features from every other version of DW, EVER. This is a MAJOR problem with the update.

                  • 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.

                              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....

                                  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?

                                    • php code hinting in multi-line strings

                                      Steps to replicate:

                                      1. open php document in codeview.
                                      2. create a multi line string variable.
                                      3. somewhere in the multiline string, between text characters (not on an empty line, press enter and the code hints show up.

                                      This is really annoying, especially when trying to tab a line across with a big block covered with the code hints that wont even work in a string.

                                      See attached screenshot

                                      • Server behaviours not works with 17.1 version

                                        In the latest Dreamweaver version (17.1) the Bindings Panel no longer works, and Database Connections don't show in the Database Panel. Also, it crashes when you try to create a new connection from within the Recordset Command.

                                        • Apply Source Formatting incorrectly adding white space inside textarea containing php

                                          In Dreamweaver CC2017 build 9314 if I enter the following code:

                                          <textarea name="fieldName"><?php echo $fieldName; ?></textarea>

                                          It looks and works fine but if I go to Edit > Code > Apply Source Formatting (which I want to do for the rest of the document) it adds unwanted white space inside the textarea, see attachment

                                          Which of course can be an issue. For example in cases where the textarea is used to allow users to update a database record it adds white space within the textarea before and after their echoed data and if they don't delete it each time before…
