Hey everyone!

There's an annoying problem occurring with me while using Dreamweaver. When I first open something to edit, the "views" works perfectly, but when I start to make changes in the code and refreshing to update the edits, my Live/Design view goes blank and nothing shows up. I can only view my edits in browser, but I need it to load in the software.

Already tried switching between Live view and designs view; Turn it off and on again; Updated the software to the latest version; Uninstalled and Installed the software 2 times cleaning every file alive in the Mac, which worked at first, but then the problem came back

Really don't know how to proceed... Already dug in the internet trying to find any solution but nothing worked.

Hope someone can help me.

It sounds to me like you may have some code errors that DW doesn't know how to handle, but the browsers ignore.

Try running the validation tool under File > Validate > Validate Current Document W3C or go to http://validator.w3.org/nu and repair any errors listed.

If your document is free of errors and it's still happening, I would try restoring preferences and/or reinstalling using the cleaner tool...

Unusual behavior in Dreamweaver? Try restoring preferences.

Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems

You're an angel! Thank you so much!

I used the tool to validate the code and found the problem... Trying to run Google Web Designer stuff on Dreamweaver
