I know this is old, but just in case another newbie like myself runs into a preview problem.
Make sure your in design mode and not live mode. The (code_split_design_live) very top of Dreamweaver

window default is live switch to design.

Hi @defaulthxl0bwnipeex,

You resurrected an old thread on an unrelated topic.  I have branched this to a new topic for you. 

 

Real-Time Preview (F12) is rendered in an actual browser, not inside Dreamweaver.

 

The Document Toolbar (see screenshot) changes how you work with pages inside Dreamweaver.  

 

Document Toolbar > Design ViewDocument Toolbar > Design View

 

Live view is more accurate at CSS rendering. 

But less accurate Design view is faster for quick content editing.

Toggle them with Ctrl + Shift + F11 on your keyboard.

 

Post back if you have other questions.
