Ich nutze Dreamwever auf Apple Catalina 10.15.
Leider funktioniert die Echtzeitvorschau Browser nicht. Habe DW de- und neu installiert aber keine Änderung?
Best option is to disable as it is unreliable, go to preferences => real-time preview => check 'default to static browser preview'
I tried this but it didn't help. WQhen I click preview nothing happens.
When you say nothing happens, is your browser launched?
no it's not launched. None of the browsers, Safari, Firefox or Chrome.
Try Restoring Preferences. It takes care of most problems.
I did as shown. Nothing changed. I even deleted the files in the Library manualy and de- and reinstalled DW but that also didn't help.
With an opened HTML file, go to File > Open in Browser.
Does that work?
No, that doesn't work.
In that case, I suspect there's a permissions problem with your operating system.
Or create a new Mac user profile with administrative rights.
I see from your Files Panel that you have PHP files which require a server to parse scripts on your localhost.
Yes I use Mamp. But for testing I used a simple html. By the way I still have DW CC2015 which works perfect. I just wanted to switch to the newest DW 2021 since working in the code mode is better ans it has Github. DW 2021 though doesn't show .htacces files in the files panel. This is why I still use CC2015.
If you're on a Mac, .htaccess files are hidden by default. I am able to see them on Windows 10.
As to why your browser won't launch on Mac Catalina, I don't know.
If you can still use DW 2015 without issue, keep using it until you can sort out the other problem.

Thank you Nancy. The funny thing is that htaccess show in DW CC2015 but not in DW 2021. Anyway, I'll stay with 2015 for now. So glad I still have it.
Nancy soory to bother you again.
After trying all the things DW 2015 doesn't even start anymore. Now I'm kind of lost.
Thre is no way for me to preview any file in DW. I have to upload them to the server and see how it looks.
I even tried a new user on my mac with the exact same problem.
Thean I deinstalled Creative Cloud completely and removed all the files from the Library folder.
After restarting and installing Creative Cloud from scratch I have the same problem.
So I was wondering if anybody else encountered this problem? hard to believe I'm the only one.
CC 2015 is not certified to be compatible with Catalina. It's too old.
Only 2020 and 2021 versions are compatible with 64-bit Catalina & higher.
Ok, not using DW 2015 anymore since it doesn't even start.
Any idea what could help me getting DW 2021 to give me realtime preview?
If you have a local testing server, you don't need Real-Time Preview. Ordinary viewing of localhost in browsers will suffice. In fact, RTP doesn't even work right with my local testing server. I have disabled it in Preferences for this reason.
Can you launch your browser normally and open a file with ⌘ + O keyboard shortcut and browse to the file in your localhost?
If not, then maybe there's a problem with MAMP or the manner in which your site and local server are defined.
I can open the file in my local host.
