Hi,

Since DW updated to the latest version it now default to Design mode most the time instead of Code like I had it in the previous version.

How can I change it back so by default regardless of the file it goes to Code view, as I can't remember what I changed at the time?

Regards,

Garry

  1. Open a file. 
  2. Switch to Code view.
  3. Close the file.
  4. Re-open the file.
  5. Does it not open in Code View?

If DW does not remember the last view, Restore Preferences.

Unusual behavior in Dreamweaver? Try restoring preferences.
