Hello Community,

 

i just startet to learn html with css and my dreamweaver is very slow.

I use local files and very simple pages.

But Dreamweaver is so laggy, it takes 1-2 sec. to type different codes.

All other programs runs normal. It's just Dreamweaver.

I made a video in attachment. https://1drv.ms/v/s!AmFqFCMJFVlXh7AK_t2dvmtwBkHc1w 

I need help 🙂

A number of people have complained about this recently. 

  • Which operating system are you using?
  • Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode with Networking?
  • If that doesn't help, file an official bug report from the DW Help Menu and revert to the previous CC version.

Hi Folks,

 

We have addressed the slow typing issue in code view on win, in our latest DW21.0 build 21.0.0.15392 which can be downloaded from Creative cloud.

Please update the Dreamweaver version to 21.0 and see if the issue is resolved for you.

 

Thanks

I just wanted to let you know. I had the same problem. DW was so slow to write that it was no longer usable.
Clearing the Temp File List helped for the time being.

I have Mac Pro 5.1 from 2012 with 4 TB SSD and 128 GB RAM. It also has 12 core processors. Dreamweaver is incredible slow and load on CPU is around 100 % and more every time I open a file. I have the latest version. Can this be a hardware issue or is it the app? 

I have problems also with Photoshop. Beach ball appears in everything I do in the app. I get stressed by this. I guess the computer is too old. The problems in Photoshop has been there in at least a year, maybe even more.

With regards

Pär Nordqvist, Sweden

Hi,

DW 21.1 is still slow while typing or doing some modification in direct mode.

I have applied the procedure with : Registry key but this doesn't improve anything.

What can I do to solve this problem?

 

For information : My system is DW21.1, Windows 10, Intel Core i7-10700F ,  RAM 32GO.

I'm on Win10 with latest updates and have no slow typing issues with valid documents stored on my primary hard drive.  However, documents containing code errors or saved to networked or cloud drives can cause DW to behave erratically.   Live view is slower than Design view.  Try switching to Design from your document toolbar.

All my documents are stored on my primary drive. I have about 130 html page. The thing that is not stored localy is the bootstrap FM, I use for that a CDN.

Other information, I'm not using GIT.

The design mode have a better behavior, but I prefer use direct mode to work on my website.

Hi everibody, 

It seems that the issue come from the .svg image used in all my pages.

I have 100 small svg image ( 2 ko each).

Is anabody can confirm that this kind of image could explain DW is slow ? 

What are the limitation DW regarding this ?

There is no limitation with SVG images that I'm aware of.

100 images x 20kb = 2mb.

 

For best results, use Code with Design view instead of Live view.

Reserve Live view for checking layout and styles.

Or preview in real browsers which is the most reliable way to check your progress.
