Live Preview Issues with Media in Adobe Dreamweaver

Hello everyone,
I'm struggling with a problem in Adobe Dreamweaver where the live preview fails to automatically update when I make changes to CSS media queries. I ensuring the correct configuration in settings, Software update, clearing browser and Dreamweaver caches, and testing on multiple projects, the preview does not refresh to show changes unless I manually reload it.

Does anyone help me to fix this so I can efficiently test responsive designs?

Real-Time Preview has always been dodgy with my local testing server, so I don't use it. I test locally with static browser preview (see screenshot).

Commit changes to the document with Ctrl/Cmd + S and refresh browser with Ctrl+R or Ctrl+F5.

Don't expect any change in this behaviour going forward. The only fix is to go to an IDE that does update the Live view. That is why I jumped ship and am using Wappler.

 

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Alongside Dreamweaver, you could use VS Code with Live Preview extension (both are free).
