DW21: After new version install "flt_lft","flt_rgt" don't follow when doing Realtime_preview.

Has something changed again?

Thanks in advance,

Ingemar

Presumably, "flt_lft" and "flt_rgt" are classes that have their style rules created in a CSS dicument.

Actually, the problem concerned Images and they have their own "floats"; .imgFloatLft[...etc]

Having fixed that:  Still, the Realtime_preview does not show correct layout.

Yellow sign says: "Could not commit changes in Line View."

Hence, I changed to Code view and Saved all.  Did not help either. ???

The answer lies in the code. Please copy and paste the HTML and the CSS here. Or better still, if the site is live, please supply the URL.

<p> In the wake of Glasgow-COP26 there is now intensified focus on Solar energy.
However, solar panel parks of the quantities needed will demand enormous space on fairly flat land. The challenge will then be to sacrifice farm-land for a constantly growing world population.</p><p><strong>New technology under way</strong> <br>Recent progress with transparent solar panels has windows as the obvious target but can also be combined with agriculture. Large structures supporting the transparent solar panels may permit sufficient light for farming below. Some crops can even have a certain advantage by the protection from scorching sun and violent down-pours of tropical rains.

<p>
A totally planar surface is important for the solar panels. The secret is the triangulation of connector nodes by the pole elements of the same length.
Such support structures, often in form of space frames, are today mostly made from aluminium profiles, often more expensive than the solar panels they support.
The same space frame structures could actually be made from bamboo, a local material made resistant to insects by low-toxic borax treatment. The cost difference compared to aluminium is gigantic. In addition the benefits of local materials and rural livelihoods are obvious.</p>

Works ok for me in a normal browser, is it just inside Dreamweaver preview the floats are not working?

Just check the page layout in a local browser, like Chrome or Firefox, Edge etc. Im not sure if Dreamweaver preview is reliable.

@ingo9,

Use right-click on open tab and select Open in Browser. 

Previewing in local browser is reliable.

 

Real-Time Preview is sometimes hit & miss because it relies on Adobe's servers.  You may turn off RTP in Preference settings.  See screenshot.

Real time previews are the worst. With complex modern style and Javascript sites these just are pointless. I hate when CMS's or systems try to use this or have it as the main site builder tool. They just fall over a lot of the time trying to render in frame websites CSS and JS plus any tool and code on top to make editing or previews work.


AS everyone said ingo9, just preview in the browsers the sites intended for.
