DW CS6 acting weird in code view

Been using DW CS6 for years with no problem but yesterday I must have done something inadvertently or DW just got corrupted in some way. One major problem/annoyance is that if I want to anything useful I have to use design view rather than code view. For example if I want to create a hyperlink. If I highlight the text in code view at the bottom of the page in “Properties” it only shows information about the div ID, Class and CSS panel which is useless, and nothing about HTML which would allow me to make the hyperlink. But if I highlight the same text in design view then I get the normal “Properties Panel” with lots options for both html and CSS. I used to get the same panel when I clicked on the text in code view.

Another example. I can only apply CSS to something from design view but not code view when I do a right click.

Though I used to do every thing in design view now I only do everything in code view. But, I use a split panel because I use design view as a quick way of finding the code I want to deal with in code view. But I really don’t want to use design view and lose the precision that comes with code view.

There are other buggy problems as well that suddenly appeared last night and make using DW irritating and slow.

So what have I done wrong that code view is not behaving properly? Do I have to reinstall? I tried using Time Machine to use a version of DW from before the problem started but that didn’t help.

After corresponding with Al privately we deduced that it is actually a DW issue. After toggling View > Style Rendering > Display Styles several times it resolved the issue. That saved me a lot of work because my next step was to reinstall CS6. I will also try some of Al's other suggestions. So to repeat it is not a PBX issue but a quirk in DW that was responsible.

have you try, when it happens to press ctrl T, or, ctrl L ? what happens in such a case... ???

I daily work in code view and most of the time that I need an hyperlink, I rarely use PI

that said, I agree that using Pick Quick in PI is a wonderfull feature

You lost me.

Sorry... so what did happen when you select text in code view then you press either Ctrl T or Ctrl L

  • using ctrl T you should have a tag editor opening, let you enter any anchor code that you like ?
  • using ctrl L should directly open a browser box to indicate the file to link

does any shortcut work for you ?

What is "PI" this is the Dreamweaver forum.

Sorry for this shortcut... PI mean Property Inspector

does this explanation make it clear ?

Thank you for that clarification. Sometimes acronyms make things difficult. Nothing happened. But as I pointed out to Al Sparber it seems to be only related to pages where I have used P7's Popbox Magic and I will take the issue to the P7 Forums.

so when working in code view if you select some text, the Ctrl T and Ctrl L shortcuts should work as expected...

At the left edge of the Property Inspector, there are two mode options, stacked one atop the other:

<>HTML

..:: CSS

You inadvertently switched to CSS mode. Simply switch back to HTML.

Thanks Al but that is only available when I have text highlighted in Design view as I mentioned in the OP.

I will figure out a way to show a screenshot so that you can what I am talking about.

Al, on further investigation it appears to be an issue related to Popbox Magic. I will contact you on the P7 users forum.

Actually, that would be physically impossible. We do not program any changes to the Property Inspector (PI). I just tested your workflow in CS6/Code View, on a page with multiple PBX instances and there is no issue. The Property Inspector works as expected.

I have not noticed a post from you on our forums, but do feel free to email us directly or give me a call. I'll be in the office most of the day.

Thanks. But just so you know, there is no possible connection between PBX and the property inspector. None exist. I need a test page that has the problem, as well as simple and precise steps to reproduce. When I get that info (on our forum) I will tell you how to fix your page. It should be fairly simple and straightforward. I'm only posting here to end the thread in a logical way

If you want, call me tomorrow and I can teach you all about deploying a Design Time CSS file. It's another option.
