Solved, by restarting dreamweaver

 

[Forgive me if I am wrong, but I thought the purpose of "]Apply Source Formatting" is to rewrite the code (html) according the preferences settings. When I run this on a html page, dreamweaver is deleting all indents instead of cleaning up the indents or adding extra indents where necessary.
This especially concern my students as I substract points, when they deliver non-indented code 😉

Have you set your indent options  in  preferences > code format ?

 

Also please state your OS and what version of Dreamweaver you are using...

Apply source formatting only indents code if that's how you have things set-up in your tag libraries.  Personally, I see no advantage in indented code.  My OCD side has always preferred working with left aligned markup.  To the matter of subtracting points from students, I think that's terrible.  Indents have no effect on performance or whether the code is actually any good or not.   Formatting code with/without indents is a personal choice, not a web standard.
