  2. Allow longer file activity log, and group "same - not transferred"

    Allow longer file activity log.

    We have several thousand files. But when we synchronize, the file activity log stops already after something like 300 files. Also, the log lists out "- same - not transferred" for every file not changed. As a result, it is sheer chance if an actual change should happen to be logged.

    I don't know that showing changes should be a product of luck in a file activity log. You'd imagine the actual file activity would be relevant for the feature.

  3. Save password checkbox does not save passwords between sessions

    My idea is to make the "Save password" box in the FTP dialog box actually save the password between DW CC sessions. While using the program, the password is saved and works repeatedly, but upon quitting and restarting, the saved password has been forgotten.

  5. code editing is not possible

    I frequently hand-code emailers which in my dreamweaver are one-page html documents.
    After upgrading to CC2018, when I now open such a simple html document with just a table in it, I cannot edit the html directly at all.

    What is happening. There is a QUICK EDIT option (right click on code area) - what is this and why is it "not available"?

    I am flabbergasted and annoyed at this bug (?) as I need to finish an emailer this afternoon and now cannot use a tool that I have used for almost 20 years.

  6. Emmet doesn't work in the new 2018 version

    I have DW2018 on my computer, and I have found out that Emmet is now written into the software and is compatible with DW. Unfortunately, it isn't with DW2018, as I have it turned on and if I do a 'shortcut', and then press tab, I get nothing. I think that Adobe developers of Dreamweaver should really look at this bug as it would be useful to have this facility.

  8. Dreamweaver not starting (menus.xml)

    Latest Dreamweaver CC 2018, fresh install.
    When running it the first time it says like "There were errors when creating menus from the information found in the current menus.xml. Delete menus.xml and rename menus.bak to menus.xml" (but it doesn't tell where to find). But the menus.bak from the installationhas the same file size as menus.xml (it is actually the same file) and when renaming it, the error repeats of course.

    Means, Dreamweaver won't start at all. DW deleted, fresh installation - still the same. DW then remains in the memory and has to be killed. Looks like a package error.…

  10. MAJOR BUG - double click on a string, press CTRL+C to copy ends up selecting the WHOLE document

    Do the following:
    Open 2 documents in CODE view
    Switch to document 2, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
    Switch to document 1, double click a string, press ctrl+C (to copy)
    repeat

    The entire document ends up being selected as if ctrl+A was pressed, this causes major workflow problems when attempting to simply copy/paste strings across 2 documents.

    Please fix this ASAP!!!

  11. This is the last bug I submit. You arent fixing shit and only making it worse

    CTRL+F is now broke. It doesnt list options anymore. Only current document. Review my last 100 bug posts to see why I just give up with you Dreamweaver. I cant even double click a variable to select it for copy/paste or type a ' or " without it adding extra crap, then when I delete one of the extra craps, it deletes both, so I type like 5 strokes for nothing to add 1 character. I am so incredibly disappointed with this Dreamweaver. Its so frustrating.

  12. Git on WSL

    Git integration currently doesn't work when the repository was setup, or used with, Windows Subsystem for Linux on Windows 10.

    The following error message appears when trying to access git through Dreamweaver:

    "Dreamweaver could not locate Git client on your computer. Install Git and relaunch Dreamweaver to enable Git features. You can also specify a custom path in Preferences."

    Specifying a custom path in Preferences does not resolve the issue. Even after install Git for Windows.

  13. Source formatting forces line break in PHP file

    When working in a PHP file, if a nested HTML element's closing tag is immediately followed by the closing tag of its parent element, the parent's closing tag is forced to a new line when source formatting is applied. For example,

    <p>This is a <a>link</a></p>

    becomes

    <p>This is a <a>link</a>
    </p>

    This bug occurs regardless of the elements involved.

  14. bootstrap css and js files not linked correctly in dreamweaver cc 2017

    When using bootstrap to set up a new html page, css and js files do not link correctly. My site is defined correctly in advance.

    Instead of link to css file like css/bootstrap.css I get <link href="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/jennifer/Desktop/testfolder r/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet"> My site is properly defined but dreamweaver doesn't link the files that way.

    How do I fix this?

  15. F8 Files Gone!

    The Files Window (f8) will disappear, I have to reset the workspace to get it back.

    What happens is this, I press f8, upload a few items then close it out by press the "close" X tab. When I try and get the window back by pressing f8 and it shows up for a second then jumps back down and disappears.

    The only thing that will bring back the F8 (files) window is the workspace reset.

    Please fix, it's driving me nuts.

  16. Page updates from Template CC17

    I have been experiencing page update errors from a DWT file in DW 2017, build 2017.0.1. After creating new HTML pages based on the template, no updates take place on these pages when the template file is updated.

    I have experience more than once in CC17, but not in CC15.
    Has anyone else experienced this also? Is there a quick fix or is this a bug?

  17. Real-Time Preview does not work

    I've made an index.html file, which I can display in a browser.
    It used to update when I refreshed the screen in the browser: but not anymore... It should update without refreshing, so that was already a bug, but one I could work around.

    Now the browser refuses to update at all, even after emptying the cache (emptying the cache worked the first time, but not anymore).

    So I made a new html file with just 1 paragraph of text (<p>test</p>).
    If this file open and 'focused' in DW (in Code View, Live View or Design View) I get the…

  18. Expand/Collapse -- Unable to Expand Collapsed Section

    If find that I will have sections of code that I have collapsed that will no longer expand when clicking on the expand/collapse arrow.

    See "Collapsed code block.png" -- This collapsed block of code can't be expanded except by clicking on the gray code snippet that shows what's been collapsed.

    Clicking on the gray snippet expands the code but the expand/collapse arrow does not change. See "Expanded via clicking gray snippet.png".

    Generally, I've encountered this bug in multiple PHP files that I'm writing. Clicking on the gray box that shows a snippet of the code will expand it, but the…

  19. Find and Replace problems

    While you fixed a large problem with the Find and Replace... I still can't immediately access the find box after I do a search. I have to click the find box twice to do another search.

    Sometimes I have to completely get out of the F/R box, then restart the find and replace to use it. It's still a pain.

    PS... PLEASE leave things alone that work well. The Find and Replace in DW2015 was great.
