DW Keeps Jumping Back to the Top After I Make Changes...

Every time I make a change on my CSS and save it, when I click back in the Live View window to view the changes, DW jumps to the top of the website.  It did this yesterday as well and when I closed it down and re-opened it, that seemed to solve the problem.  But now that is not working anymore.  I don't know if I clicked something by accident to make this happen but would appreciate help in getting this fixed.  Thank you!

When adjusting a margin and using single-screen workspace, a stable live view is essential. Toggling to a browser to see your effects is not a good enough solution. In years past, Dreamweaver was excellent for minor CSS adjustments, because you could watch the live view move with as you drag a margin, padding, or font size. I would love to go back to that.

I don't know what product you were using, but Dreamweaver has always required that you save changes first and then hit refresh (F5) to view results.

 

Make sure you're in LIVE view and not DESIGN view on your Document Toolbar.  Or you can toggle between them with Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + F11 (function keys must be enabled).

 

Hope that helps.

My post was the only way to communicate with Adobe employees emailing in response to this thread. The Adobe employee's company email box was full and would not accept my reply. Adobe employees were asking for an appointment so they can see the live view jumping to the top when I try am trying to work in the code box or CSS manager for a particular section. I have read two of your posts toward me. I won't be back to this forum for another several years. 

 

You said you "dont' know what software I am using." It's always worked the clunky way you say. My original posts was correct. Your post was condescending and wrong. 

DO NOT (I noticed your all caps) think you are providing help or good service. This is not an inviting environment. Go ahead and delete this now, too. I really need to move my firm away from Adobe.

Adobe employees don't usually reach out via email as a response to a forum post. They will typically post here first, giving instructions how to contact them directly for additional troubleshooting

Make sure you are only working with Adobe reps that have @Deleted User email addresses. 

Anything else is going to be a scammer, taking advantage of the forum's Private Messaging system, and trying to take your money or personal information.
