Clicking in code or live view jumps randomly to an unrelated part of the page.
Clicking in code or live view jumps randomly to an unrelated part of the page. This has been a problem in Dreamweaver for years, but much worse lately. Sometimes I have to scroll through hundreds of lines and seek out and click on the same element or line of code half a dozen times, over and over again, until Dreamweaver finally lets me edit it. Despite my best efforts, my kids are learning all kinds of unfortunate language at high volume because of how badly this interface sucks.
After more use it seems that some variable is maintaining the previous mouse click which is recording the position. Some screen refresh is then using that previous variable instead the current click position. State tracking problem.
Seeing the same issue on macOS DW2020. You are looking at a live view page and click the mouse on an item but it highlights a different item and scrolls somewhere else.
Seems like the code is taking the click event and coming up with the wrong object in the DOM and scrolling to it.
It isn't consistent. It doesn't happen every time. Not sure yet what is triggering this.
