Good morning, I use Dw cs6. I would like to know why a file (css) of about 1 MB slows down Dw a lot. If I unplug it, Dw starts spinning normally again. What can I do to solve this problem? Thank you.

My largest CSS file is well under 200 KB.  I have no problems.  Why is yours so huge?  

 

Too much weight in scripts & supporting files does nothing positive for your site or your site visitor's experience.  I think you must replace what you have now with a much smaller stylesheet.

If it slows Dreamweaver down, imagine what it will do for the network when deployed.

 

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

First, to the file being large, have you run a site speed test in awhile to see how your page is performing? I would recommend doing that because slow loading times can negatively impact your SEO as well: https://web.dev

 

Second, is the CSS file local or remote? Remote files have been known to impact DW because it is constantly trying to keep the connection to the server. If this is the case, can you load the file locally instead of remotely?

Hello, I am really sorry to say thig, but large css and files as heavy as 1 MB will not only slow your editing process. It will slow your SEO as the crawler will not be able to get through the debris of your code.
