PLEASE bring back the old code colour options we had before Dreamweaver 2017.
I've even noticed that the old color files are still buried within the app folder, so why on earth can't we use them?
For loyal customers like me who have been using the same colour scheme for many years (since Dreamweaver 1), it's a huge blow to suddenly lose what we are SO used to.
My productivity has seriously dropped since this update because it takes longer to spot the parts of code I want to edit.
Please reinstate this old feature so we can get back to work again.
I came here to find out what happened to it! The option was available on the beta then it disappeared. I miss being able to select my own colors for the code. I like the dark theme overall, but want to customize my code colors.
It is quite jarring for those of us who've been using DW since the Macromedia days. Please give us the option to get those colors back in code view!
yes me too, I was like where is it. I can't tell where my select tags begin and my td tags end. I really have focus so I don't delete anything.
Please update to the latest version of Dreamweaver 2017.0.1 where most issues with code coloring have been addressed.
See Dreamweaver 2017.0.1 is now live for more info.
This document https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/customize-code-coloring.html has been updated to reflect changes.
This is a great addition/update, thanks!
Why editing a less file? Why can Adobe not leave things so that people who work with DW for YEARS! can keep using useful features. Issues with color coding have not been solved. We would like to have full control of the code formatting like it used to be from the days of Macromedia till now. Why change things that work good?
When making edits to code in Dreamweaver, I click on a line of code and the entire tag highlights in a really light green with white text. This is not readable and I have gone into preferences and changed the "highlighting" which has no effect on this highlight color. How do I change it?
We have started working on “Code Coloring Customization” improvements by adding support for customization of generic and language specific colors and the changes are available in our latest Prerelease drop.
With this improvement you will be able to customize Code Colors in Dreamweaver Preferences --> Interface window.
