Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. SFTP Not Working

    Dreamweaver does not work with SFTP. I can connect but am only able to access the directory that stores my profile, meanwhile I am able to connect and view all files using Filezilla. For the cost of the program and the fact that more and more sites / hosts are going the secure route, this feature should be a priority.

  3. Copy and paste not bringing across structure/formatting

    Hi,

    When copying and pasting text from another program (e.g. Microsoft Word) into Dreamweaver CC 18.1, the structure is not coming across into HTML tags and pasting everything in <p> tags.

    Even if the Word document is correctly using styles for heading levels, bulleted lists and even tables, none of the structure is coming across. It is reverted into just single lines of text within <p> tags.

    I attempted to even copy and paste from a web page which contained appropriate structure for heading level etc. but Dreamweaver is still not bringing across the relevant HTML tags.

    This is a…

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting.
    We are sorry that you are facing issues with Dreamweaver.

    However, we are not able to see this issue at our end.
    Could you please upgrade to latest Dreamweaver version DW 18.2 and see if it resolves the issue.

    Thanks

  4. Apply source formatting breaks <a> tags when next to each other.

    When there ara a couple <a> html tags next to each other like

    <a name="defaultadvancedaliasescharts" id="defaultadvancedaliasescharts"></a>
    <a name="aaCharts" id="aaCharts"></a>

    and I apply source formatting, it becomes the following which breaks both of them. In first <a> tag it changes the opening <a to < a and closing </a> to < /a>. In second <a> tag it changes opening <a by adding a line break and tab before the a and like the first <a> tag changes the closing </a> to < /a>.

    < a name = "defaultadvancedaliasescharts"
    id = "defaultadvancedaliasescharts" > < /a> <

    a name = &quot;aaCharts&quot;
    

    id =…

  5. Code keeps disappearing

    Since the latest upgrade (2017.1), the code view keeps disappearing. I can't find which action makes it happen.

    Sometimes closing or opening windows helps, or closing program. I usually work in split view design/code. Switching views or to all code does not fix it.

    In any case it renders the program completely unusable.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.…

  17. 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!!!

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
