It doesn't matter if I try the preview icon in the lower right of the edit window or go to FILE > OPEN IN BROWSER, I cannot get Dreamweaver to preview in any browser. Nothing happens. This is how my preferences are set:
Is your browser open?
Hi, Nancy. Yes, my browser is open. At least Chrome (my primary) is.
You may disable Preview with temporary file. It's not necessary.
Are you trying to preview in Chrome or another browser?
When you hit F12, what happens? Please post a screenshot with any error messages you see in your browser.
Hi, Nancy. Pressing F12 makes a half-second flicker of my Properties panel, but nothing else happens. No error prompts or anything.
Chrome is set as my primary browser.
I just unchecked Preview using temporary file, and it will preview. Forces me to save though. Never had that issue before.
Of course you must save your work. Use Ctrl/Cmd + S (save) often. Use F5 to refresh your browser.
