Hello, I'm using a new verion of DW (19.2.1),
up from an older version a few years back.
I'm trying to edit in split version (on code) and there's suddenly
a huge amount of animated stuff happening which I find extremely
annoying and distracting. Can someone please tell me how to
turn it off?
This web-page has an auto-play music file (mp3) on it, which
is now playing in Dreamweaver. It also has a slide-show animation
which is also playing. (this is all in split-screen). When I try editing
the image file-names in the slideshow, popup balloon with the actual
image appears, right at my cursor. This is maddening when you are
trying to hand-code.
I tried in pref's to disable "show dialog when inserting objects".
This didn't do a thing.
Please help me find my way back to a clutter-free, distraction-free
view of code in split-view, so I can edit without all these annoying
If it's annoying to you, think of the poor person that lands on the site. If it were me, I'd quickly close the page and go elsewhere.
As far as the question is concerned, try Design view instead of live view/
I 2nd Ben's remarks. And I will add that you can disable Description Tooltips from Preferences > Code Hints.
