Am I the only one who doesn't actually have "up" and "down" buttons and the top and bottom of their scroll bar in the DW 2017 code view. I find myself using the slider and scrolling so fast I lose my code.

I don't know where they would fit buttons.   The workspace is kind of tight as it is.

The scrollbars work well for me on Win10.

I often work in Code-Code,  Split Vertically  so I can readily jump to different places in the document.   And I turn off Live View because it slows me down.

I use keyboard arrows,  PgUp & PgDn.   Unless there is something wrong with your computer, keyboard direction keys should work.

Thanks, Nancy. That's what I do. Problem is when I've already got my hand on the mouse and use it to click on an element in the live/design pane, DW automatically selects the code (or text) in code view and defaults to the bottom of the code window. If I press the up or down arrow key, I'm still in the live/design view, not code view. So clicking on code view changes the focus of what's selected. Rinse. Repeat.

I may sound whiny, but would standard up and down buttons be appropriate?

You don't know where they would fit?  Right where the current unusable scrollbars are!   Below is how it should look.

Wondering why this has not been addressed - the little up and down arrows on the to and bottom of the scroll bar are in place in design view but not code view.  Please fix this problem.  It is very inconvenient with working with code and using the mouse.

Scroll arrows are unnecessary for code panel when Word Wrap is enabled.  View > Code View Options > Word Wrap.  The vertical scrollbar and keyboard arrow keys are all I  need.

Hey Nancy, I just noticed this on my "live" view side of DW... Those little up and down arrows don't seem to take up much room...lol. I'm just a wishful kind of guy.

I agree. Use DreamWeaver code view daily, and I'm missing the "doghouses" that scroll up and down (and right/left when necessary). I don't have a scroll wheel on my mouse. Holding the thumb (that's the scrolling marker that runs up and down the scrollbar) is not accurate enough. It often pages up or pages down -- especially in long code sequences. Using the dog houses, I used to be able to reveal a line at a time. Please Adobe -- If you have the scrollbar, you have room for an arrow at the top and an arrow at the bottom -- and it's going to make life much more pleasant. Thanks.

Agree.

Have exactly the same issue, impossible working without that scroll up and down!

Very well explained by Nedlaw, 100% agree, current scroll is not accurate:

"Holding the thumb (that's the scrolling marker that runs up and down the scrollbar) is not accurate enough. It often pages up or pages down -- especially in long code sequences."

Thank you

Hi lnayal,

Thanks for your input, did not know about "Adobe Dreamweaver: Ideas"

Had a look and have seen there was already an open request about:

Up and Down Arrows for Scrolling – Adobe Dreamweaver CC: Feature Ideas

As been said: Who in their right mind removed them in the first place?

Cannot believe nobody at Adobe takes care of this issue.

Thank you

Hi Guil85,

Its not like nobody is looking at this issue, we just pick issue which has highest number of votes from users.

Meanwhile you can vote for this idea and ask others to vote so that this can be prioritized.

Thanks,

Hi lnayal,

Please, let me say that such a issue does require a bit more attention.

Do we image - nowadays -  a car without tires ?

How can we use a scroll bar being so small and not having "up" and "down" buttons ?

Impossible to be accurate !

Yesterday I had my arm suffering from trying to compare 2 pages code.

Not accurate, a big effort to get to the right place in the code! Impossible working that way, sad!

You know, I had to use another web editor in order to finish my work yesterday !

Highest number of votes is (should) not be the definitive approach, IMHO.

How many customers do not vote and just stop use this product and/or switch to another brand?

I believe you might look at each issue, not only/just trusting on votes.

Just my opinion

Thank you

Greetings!

Hi,

We have discused this and items such as how new features should be decided on, a number of times in this forum, and no one has yet thought of a method that does not rely on user participation, or feedback from user groups which could be a large group who have never actually worked in web development, to an individual with 20 years experiance, all whos opinions as individuals carries the same weight.

The main problem is, that what one user considers wrong another user will consider an excellent feature. If anyone can think of a better method for deciding what should be changed, and what new features should be included everyone would like to know it.

This is no critisism of yourself, as we all agree the system is far from ideal, and possibly open to abuse, (nothing to stop you getting everyone you know to vote, Dw user or not) but !!!

People have been asking for this feature (to be restored, not added) for YEARS. Is it really that hard? What's the downside? PLEASE PUT IT BACK.
