    The command in the Files panel, using the right-click menu, will not update the list of files in a folder. This in version 21.

  2. Redo Become Visible after Launch

    Why does the Redo become active in the menu after launching the application and selecting an item on a file tree. Also clicking on the Redo doesn't seem to change anything. In addition, the visual illustration of the web page doesn't seem to update when the code is edited.

  3. Deleting </head> tag automatically

    For some reason DW randomly deletes my closing </head> tag whenever I open the html file. I can see it in the output error console...when I open a file the tag will be missing (even though I've saved it and it was there) then after a while an error will pop up that the tag is missing and I have to put it back. Happens every time on any html page I open. Running the most up to date DW from Creative Cloud.

  4. Linting reporting "fr" units as false / unexpected token.

    I believe this is a known issue but programs like VSC do not report it. could we get fr units to be properly recognized? Just a minor annoyance to see it show up as a broken line on my CSS sheet.

  5. update to 2021 and all settings (dw 2017) disappeared

    a function is wanted that takes over local / user-dependent settings after an update. Mainly site definitions, workspace colors et cetera!

  6. Saving broke my code!!!

    First character of several lines of code instantly deleted when I clicked saved via Ctrl+Shift+U

    I watched the code go from properly formatted to WHITE font charaters (indicating improterly formatted code) in an instant, as i was saving the file using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+U.

    Please see the attached file for the detailed problem.
    Thank you for your attention to this issue.

  7. Bug

    Dreamweaver 2020 on Windows 10 is extremely text unfriendly compared to DW MX. It is forever taking time off to think about the simplest edit and it moves from display to code ridiculously slowly. I have lots of memory - that isn't the problem. It repeatedly flashes "not responding" and does so when it's closing to. It feels like a good application has been ruined by over-elaboration. What is it doing with my memory? Other things - the Find and Replace function is much worse than previously and no longer integrated. I dislike the killing of anchors though I understand…

  8. The noun "setup" is used instead of the verb "set up."

    Terms comprising an action followed by a direction are always two words when they're verbs and one word when they're nouns. A person might set up their setup, then log in with their login. They could break down during the resulting breakdown, and freak out while having a freakout.

    When a user is prompted to set up a site, the wrong form of the term is used.

  9. Erratic Code Editing

    When I scroll through my code and then select the code I want to edit, Dreamweaver randomly but consistently jusmps to code somewhere else, forcing my to scroll all over again to find the edit point. This is so frustrating because it haoppens 100% of the time. It is not intermittent.

  10. Mac Big Sur 11.0.1 - DreamWeaver 21. Display Issue


    1. I copied and pasted the text into line 719 and removed the brackets in the code. The display still shows the cut and paste result.


    2. When you save it take a long time to update the modified date in the file manager and when you upload it takes time to again on the server...

  11. Dreamweaver 20.2 synchronization not working right

    When synchronizing selected folder, DW is trying to sync the entire site half of the time. Extremely annoying and a waste of my time. I'm afraid it's going to really mess things up. This is a critical. FIX IT. Because of this, I have lost files, thank god I had a backup.

    It also doesn't seem to recognize any changes in Case, which it really needs too. When changing the case on a folder, filename or extension, it seems to ignore this.

  12. Syncing could be sped up by an order of magnitude

    Syncing could be sped up by an order of magnitude.

    Syncing is extremely slow when it doesn't have to be.

    Keep an up to date state of both the server and local files on an ongoing basis. Then the sync doesn't have to read the state of the remote system using ultra-slow FTP handshaking. This has been a problem for YEARS.

  14. The work i saved reseted the next time I opened Dreawaever, meaning I lost 3 hours of work.

    Instead of opening on a blank screen, like usual, it opened my file exactly how I OPENED it the last time I used Dreamweaver, instead of the last time i saved it.

  15. JavaScript in Real-Time Preview cannot be executed normally

    First, create a simple html:

    Next, press F12 to open Real-Time Preview. You will see a blank

  16. Activity window un-viewable Windows 10 2004

    Activity window un-viewable Windows 10 2004

    The taskbar shows the tab for the Activity windows, when pushing files, but maximizing it/clicking it never shows the activity window.

    I use 3 screens, if that makes any difference.

    This is causing me to be unable to see what files had issues being pushed.

  17. Unordered list live view issue

    Created a template that has div tag pair just outside an editable area. Within that editable area (on a child page) created an inner div that contains an unordered list and some other content. While working on that, inadvertently had an extra starting div tag with no closing one for it. Saw the error, removed the extra starting tag, and mistakenly removed the correct closing tag inside the editable area.
    DW showed no error, no complaint, allowing the mismatch.
    What happened after was that any attempt to edit something in live view had DW searching for the proper closing tag…

  18. code keeps disappearing in Dreamweaver 2021

    I'm going to let the screenshot speak for itself. Code disappears when working on straight HTML file (nothing fancy).

  20. html file extension

    On macOS it is very easy to save an HTML file without the .html extension. DW isn't smart enough to correct this oversight.

    If you create a new HTML by File > New then choose the first document type HTML and then finalise with Create you are placed into a new untitled HTML document.

    When you attempt to save on macOS you will first see the text field for the file name with selection highlighting. The default filename and extension is highlighted. Immediately typing anything will overwrite both the file name and the extension. So you might type, "cool-site" hoping…
