Dreamweaver 20.0 - Can't type / edit text in design mode
Often I cannot type or edit text in Design mode as I could in the previous version. I have a Mac w/high Sierra. It seems if I wait several minutes after loading a file, eventually I can type/edit in design mode, but not always. I have no idea why, but I may have to revert to the prior version. Is something loading in background perhaps that I have to wait for? Any ideas are helpful.
Using a Mac Book Pro: On Mac OS Catalina v 10.15.4
View in Live mode currently causing it to freeze and become unresponsive, when a reboot happens and it automatically reopens the last session it still won’t respond.

Can't strikethrough text in design mode. (Have to edit in code mode)
Also wasn't able to CUT selected text in design mode. (I could copy it only) Menu option greyed out; command-X didn't work either.
In split screen, code is not sync'd with display, especially if I double click word/paragraph.
FIle on local disk.
Running 20.1 (build 15211). MacOS Sierra 10.13.6.

Thanks for reporting us.
I tried to recreate this issue on MacOS high Sierra (10.13.6) but cannot reproduce at my end.
Could you please help me by providing the video of the issue.

Dreamweaver 20.0 is not stay clicked into text box in design mode to edit text, I click on the text box to edit cursor line appears and with in 2 sec it clicks out of box on its own. I'm no widows 10 pro.
This appears to be a issue with 20.0, I have been using dreamweaver sense ver 6 and have never experienced this before. We can still edit text in code mode of course, but should not have to search for text and edit sometimes is so much faster to use design or live mode and change some text real quick
This needs to be addressed by adobe ASAP
I see other people are having similar issues
I replied to Divya via email with screen capture of issue, but thought I'd shed some light here for others. DW seems to work fine when first launched. If I click between the app and anything else like the Finder or a browser or other app it still seems to work fine. I seems to happen when I use Command+Tab to jump around. When I Cmd+Tab back to DW it loses focus and I have to actually click on DW to bring it in front, but then can't click or work on anything. This is on desktop machine (Trashcan). Seems to work fine when using on my laptop.
Any solution to this bug??

I am also experiencing an inability to manually edit code in DW 2020. when i try to change previous values, DW deletes characters but won't open the necessary space to type new ones.
The following day:
I uninstalled DW 2020, removed all saved Prefs., and that seems to have fixed the problem.
Are you seeing this issue in new blank html document too?
I had the exact same problem. It's basically the same as thing as being in notepad as I can only edit in code view. Very frustrating. I uninstalled 20 and re-installed 19. Works fine in that version.
Thank you for reporting this issue.
