Dreamewaver 21.4

I am really frustrated with Dreamweaver 21.4.

 

Maybe there is some problem with my installation or something is broken and it is not working properly. The WYSISWG editor is impossible to use, in many occasions it does not allow me to write, it adds me   in infinity of places, it does not allow me to copy and paste, in short everything I have to do from the code and I really do not understand Dreamweaver this way. In my opinion it "WAS" a WYSIWYG tool, now it is a code editor like Notepad++ for example but with a viewer of what is being written in the HTML (I am using pure HTML+CSS in the "old school" way).

 

Will there be any possibility to configure the behavior of Dreamweaver like the CC2017 series for example? Make it simple, allowing to do everything in the WYSIWYG interface. I confess that for the moment I am using it only to edit templates that I have for mailing, nothing much workload or programming for web pages that I understand well that is the goal. But, I need, I really need, to work in the old way, I can not adapt to select a "TABLE" tag within the DOM and automatically select all or not selected.

 

HELPPP!

Dreamweaver has not be WYSIWYG for many years. The closest it working in live view, but it's not a visual drag and drop editor. As Dreamweaver is in minimal maintenance mode only receiving critical updates to stay operational, it is unlikely there will be new development on either end to solve this. If you are looking for more visual editors without having to worry about code you may want to consider self-hosted solutions like Wordpress with page builder plugins, or look to hosted solutions like Wix/Webflow/etc that give you the ability to build sites within their editors without having to code.

Thanks Ben, I'm not looking for a site editor like the ones you indicate. I am a programmer and I generate sites from code, I was simply looking to speed up my work in such trivial things as email templates, in the old versions of Dreamweaver that utility worked fantastic for me. I have tried other alternatives to Dreamweaver but no, what I had a long time ago in the CC2017 version I can no longer find it anywhere, it is a very valuable resource for me.

 

Would anyone know if from my Adobe license I can get the old Dreamweaver CC2017 program? My license is Creative Cloud All applications 100 GB

Unforunately Adobe instituted a policy of one major release back so 2017 is too far back.

 

With regards to email, I feel your pain as I have worked in emails for many years and now typically just either code by hand or within platforms themselves like Hubspot, Marketo, etc.

As far as email platforms? Marketo is an Adobe product, but the builder in there expects you to code HTML by hand and import so many companies who use it need to have that skillset if you have been doing that. Otherwise, I see companies going to solutions like Hubspot because they have drag and drop editors which suffice for more business use cases.

 

As a backup editor, I do use Nova (Mac only, formerly Coda) or Visual Studio Code.
