Code view in Dreamweaver 21.3 goes blank

Several times I've found on switching to code view the screen goes blank with no code showing. The page will display in live view and validates.
I'm using the 'Light' theme, which I find easier on my eyes.

To fix it and make the code visible again I find I have to switch themes, sometimes several times, back and forth.

I'm using build 15593 on a 64 bit PC with 32Gb RAM and an RTX 3060 graphics card

Sounds like corrupted Preferences.

  1. Save files and close Dreamweaver.
  2. Restore Preferences and you should be good to go.

Hope that helps.

That seems to have fixed the issue. I haven't had the problem since I followed your advice.

But this should not happen. I did that when I face this situation, view code just get black. Easy: close and reopen. I though maybe problem with Memory.

When working with PHP files in LIVE view, you must Save & refresh screen often.

To avoid this, I toggle to DESIGN view (Ctrl + Shift + F11).

 

Invalid code can often cause unexpected results.
