  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. auto-compiled CSS files appear in the same folder with source scss, not defined output folder

    I am trying to use CSS preprocessor but auto-compiled CSS files appear in the same folder with source scss, however I defined the output folder.

    Just for a test I changed _base.scss to base.scss and base.css was created in the same folder.

    I also tried changing output folder several times but in vain.

    Dreamweaver CC 2017 on Mac.

  9. Dreamweaver CC 2015.2 very slow on macOS sierra

    Dreamweaver CC 2015.2 very slow on macOS Sierra 10.12.5 when opening files. Trying to open even a small file causes the CPU to spike! This needs to be fixed. CC 2015.2 is supposed to be supported on Sierra.

  10. Find/Replace window won't stay open

    The Find/Replace window (ctrl-shift-f) automatically closes whenever a search or replace is performed. It should either stay open or have the option to stay open.

  12. Linting error: defer and async do not need to have values.

    An error is displayed in Output stating that async needs a value, which isn't true. Async can be used by itself. There is no option under Preferences > Linting for CSS, HTML, or JS, to change this. Ditto for itemscope and defer needing a value.

  13. search results collapsed in collapsed code (bug is back)

    Hi,

    dreamweaver version 2017.5, build 9878.

    If you do a search and the result is in collapsed code, dreamweaver does not expand the collapsed code to show the result when clicking it in the search window.

    This bug was reported in version 2015.3 and is marked as fixed, but the bug is now back (hasnt done it for at least a year).

    Please fix it

  14. Code Coloring missing in Preferences - Find and Replace missing functions

    The code coloring we were used to have since the days of Macromedia is missing. This I cannot consider an idea, but a bug. Please restore that function back.

    Also the find and replace function misses to find (1 instance!) instead of all, and the find next.

  16. GIT support of SSH Protocol

    Dreamweaver for Windows 2017.5 9878
    Windows 10 Pro-64 bit

    Tried to set up my GIT server. My GIT server is using the SSH protocol, and with a standalone client I can connect using:

    ssh://[username]:[password]@[address]:[port]/[path to repository]

    If I try to use the SSH protocol in Dreamweaver, the Username/Password fields remain disabled (it appears they only work if the protocol is HTTPS). If I put the above format in the URL string, I get the following error:

    Error: ssh: Could not resolve hostname [address]:[port]: Name or service not known
    fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

    Please make sure you have…

  18. Errors/Warnings

    In the Errors/Warnings Output window the reporting isn't live. I have to click out of what I'm working on and then click back for it to refresh. Time consuming and frustrating.

  20. The scroll bar does not smoothly scroll in full design view!!!

    While I'm working in Full design view the scroll bar to move down the page at the right side of the window does not smoothly scroll. When I scroll the design doesn't move and then if I scroll further it will jump all the way to the bottom of the design. Then when I scroll up it jumps to the middle or top of the design, almost like it's not in sync with the scroll bar. Code and Split view scroll bars work fine.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting. We are not seeing this issue at our end.
    Could you please check if the issue is reproducible with latest Dreamweaver 19.0, which can be downloaded from Creative cloud.

    Please let us know if you still face the issue.
    If it is reproducible, it would be helpful if you could share a video of the issue.

    Thanks
