Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. Adobe Dreamweaver ignores Windows 10 cursor blink setting

    I have Windows 10 Settings > search on blink > Change cursor blink rate set to None.

    However, in Adobe Dreamweaver 21.1, the cursor blinks in the editing area. Please respect my Windows 10 cursor blink rate settings.

  2. Paragraph issues, live mode, templates

    Issue #1:
    Create a document based on a template (starter template, hand made, both have the same issues). Pasting text does not create a paragraph, either in code window or live mode window.
    Manually corrected with adding a P tag pair.
    Place cursor in live view, hit enter to split the paragraph, it does nothing. Switch to design view, it works. If the document is not based on a template, it will work in either mode, so this appears to be related to child templates.

    Issue #2:
    Adding a paragraph via insert (or ENTER in design view) adds a non…

  3. 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.

  5. Can't open file with no extension

    A file like "error_log" is often found on a server where php is used and there is no way to open it by clicking on it.

    Since it does not have an extension, there is no way to add it under file types.

    This has been an issue forever and was never implemented or fixed. I am using version 21.1

  6. Dreamweaver 21.1 unusable on Big Sur

    Dreamweaver won't come to the front (become active) after having been dismissed.
    Typing is slow.
    At times the programme just stops working. Can't click anything.
    It's completely and utterly unusable.

  7. Frequent random crashes with DW 21.1

    Hello,
    I'm experiencing very frequent random crashes after few minutes of working with Dreamweaver 21.1 (15413 Build) on Windows 10 Pro N 20H2 (19042.804).
    It may happen while doing anything.
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but it didn't work (I installed from Creative Cloud).
    I tried searching on the internet, but I was not able to find any info.
    I attached the error event from Windows Event Viewer. Let me know if I can provide any other info.

    I'm a teacher.... it is very frustrating !
    Thanks

  8. DW randomly opens a folder that's not the last one used

    When adding links to files, for example, to a pdf, trying to locate the local file through the Properties panel takes to a folder that's not the last one used (to insert an image, for example). It doesn't make sense: if we're working on a project where all the files are in a specific folder for that project, why browse to a different folder, even if that was the place where the last file of that type (pdf, in this case) was found? In the snapshot attached, I had just linked to another pdf for this same html file, so…

  9. Cmd + Opt + drag on a Mac won't copy code

    It just moves the selected code. It needs to be fixed.

  10. Dreamweaver not detecting coding error

    One shouldn't put lists inside paragraphs, but DW doesn't detect when that is done. It comes up as an error in other code editors.

  11. Dreamweaver 2021 MAC date modified on downloaded files is wrong

    Dreamweaver v21.0 Build 15392 file dates on downloaded files are WRONG. DW is totally unusable for downloading.
    This happens on most files, the Creation date is sometimes changed, the modified date is always changed.
    The date shows as 1/27/1990 in DreamWeaver, and as 4/11/2262 in Mac Finder.
    This does NOT happen if I use Forklift V 3.4.4 Build 211 to download files.
    MacBook Pro 15 Big Sur Ver 11.1 Build 20C69
    Intel Intel i9 2.9 Ghz, 32 Gb mem, Radeon Pro 560x, 2 TB Apple SSD

    I have tried Reset DW Prefs; Rest MacBook Date and Time, Enable DW Sync,…

  12. DreamWeaver FTP problem

    I have purchased a subscription to the latest DreamWaver, Illustrator and PhotoShop (all are creative cloud). However, I have some issues with DW. The problem is that it takes so long to connect to the remote server via FTP, if at all possible. All the time I have to enter the setup and uncheck and uncheck to use passive FTP. Suddenly upload is canceled and it takes an awful long time to upload regular HTML, XHTML or PHP files the times it works. In the previous versions, this has never been a problem. I have a fast fiber optic line…

  18. find and replace window will not close

    Can't close Find and Replace window. There is no option or button to close the F&R window. It just stays open until all the F&R have been completed. This is a pain in the ass. I don't want to run the changes on everything. I'm using DW 2021, Big Sur, brand new imac.

  19. The editor sometimes shows the HTML code of a different file that is open (tab) than the currently selected tab

    I've had this happen a few times with 2021 DW. The HTML code in code view (only) is showing the HTML code of a different file that is also open but on a different, non-selected tab.

  20. Several Dreamweaver bugs prevent every new call of the "Info about new functions"

    I think it would be a helpful idea to give Dreamweaver users access to information about new functions, especially since those information masks are not only informative, but also contain useful selection, change and start functions.

    (Note: due to my translation of the German terms into english the terms may not match the Adobe terms used in English and should be understood accordingly)

    The windows or selection masks "Info about new functions" displayed when installing or restarting Dreamwever cannot be displayed or used again without deinstallation and restart (at least within my configuration macbook pro BigSur 11.1).

    Resetting the "Info…
