Adobe Dreamweaver: Bugs

  1. Unmatching PHP start { and end ) symbols highlighted

    Dreamweaver has a good habit of trying to find a matching end symbol when you have highlighted a start symbol. I'm seeing a pattern of false positives, though, where DW is associating the start symbol of { with the end symbol of ), rather than exclusively the matching } symbol.

  6. Page title not showing when viewing dynamic pages through XAMPP

    Please bring back the page title when doing a real time preview. Although I found out there is a round about way to get the title by right clicking the page tab in DW and choosing show in browser, that is a hassle. I want to be able to press F12 like I used to. Currently all I get is a "Real Time Preview" and a link with the URL being http://127.0.0.1:58342/preview/app/index.html. I am usually working several pages at once and this method makes it difficult to know which page is which. It worked perfectly until 2017

  7. Insert Hyperlink is jacked up in 2017

    Old way: Select text, choose insert hyperlink and specify URL and any other options.

    New way: Select text, choose insert hyperlink. Pop up wants to know if the new hyperlink should be above, below or beside the current text. Using the current text is grayed out. Next dialog want to know the text to display for the hyperlink (WTF?), the URL and the options. The new link is created using the specified text in the specified location.

    This is two extra steps and eliminates the option of the only thing that made any sense. I have text that I want…

  9. Apply Source Formatting splitting HTML Tags

    I've posted this issue before - and it was fixed in a later release during the beta, but now the problem is back, where using "Apply Source Formatting" splits </body> and </html> tags into
    <
    /body>

    and

    <
    /html>

    This only happens if these tags are in their own PHP file without the opening tags. I do my footers as an PHP Include and so it's quite annoying.

  10. Dreamweaver 2017 Crashes Continually Windows 10

    The latest version of Dreamweaver 2017 CC continually crashes when I try to use it. It seems to run fine for about 10 minutes then crashes. It will crash even when idle. The new features look decent, but I have installed an older version until you guys fix the issue.

    Thanks!

  12. BUG: Pressing ENTER at first position of line indents the line

    When I press ENTER while the cursor is at the first position of a line of code, the line gets indented - which is unwanted. Instead, it should just create an empty line above and leave the current line as it is.

    See the current faulty behaviour in the screenshots below. (1) before pressing enter, (2) after pressing enter

  13. hyperlink

    The creation of hyperlink in code mode does not work very well. When you select the item to be defined as the cliquable element and then choose in the menu Insert -> hyperlink, it happens very often that not all selected item is copied in the dialog box (it can even happen that nothing appears!). This bug was already present in the former version (Dw14).

  14. Find / Replace input fields randomly unresponsive

    I keep randomly being unable to manually select & type into the find and replace input textareas and just get the tooltips when moving the cursor over and trying to click into them.
    I can update the search term by highlighting in the code view and pressing Ctrl+F but input fields remain unresponsive.

  16. 日本語のフォルダ名があるときクイック編集が使えない

    バグかどうかわかりませんが、クイック編集を使用する際、フォルダ、ディレクトリに日本語が使われている場合、機能しません。日本語でフォルダ名をつける人も多いし、ユーザー名フォルダもシステム側で日本語名がつけられている場合があります。で対応していただけると大変助かります。

  17. Auto-add closing </...> not needed for <cfdump> and <cfabort>

    The CF tags <cfdump> and <cfabort> should not fire the DW auto-close function. Also, for the <cfdump> tag, the optional attribute "abort" should be an option so you can create the tag <cfdump var = "#___#" abort>

  19. After following a link in Live View I can't see which page I'm on.

    When I open a web page in Live View, the tab correctly shows which page I'm on. However, after following a hyperlink, I go to a different page, but the name in the tab stays the same, so I have no indication of which page I actually went to.

  20. Links to "learn" help files from bottom banners in main file menu lead to 403 non authorised page

    Even though I'm logged on at adobe.com clicking the "learn" banners at the bottom of the main file screen in DMW (see attached) will lead to a 403 "non authorised" page.
