Hello, I used Dreamweaver 2015 for a very long time. I spoke with an adobe rep and they told me I needed to update. The new version of Dreamweaver 2018 trys to do so much for you that it slows you down if you know how to code..I am tried to disable code hints and that did not work..

Is there a way to disable all features so I can write the code the way I want and just use the FTP with it..

Hello bradleya65462991,

Can you please let us know the DW version and OS version where you are running into the issue.

You can find DW version and build number About Dreamweaver window:

  • Win: Help menu->About Dreamweaver
  • Mac: Dreamweaver CC menu->About Dreamweaver

You can disable auto completion of quotes and brackets with below steps:

  1. Quit Dreamweaver
  2. Open following file in a text editor:
    • Win: %appdata%\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2018\en_US\Configuration\Brackets\brackets.json
    • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CC 2018/en_US/Configuration/Brackets/brackets.json
  3. Set below 2 flags in the file to false which are set to true by default.
    • "autoCloseQuotes": false,
    • "autoCloseBraces": false,
  4. Save and close the file
  5. Launch Dreamweaver.

Autocompletion of quotes and brackets will be now disabled.

Also when you opened the brackets.json, can you please let us know if showCodeHints flag is set to true or false.

This flag will be set to false when you deselect and click on Apply button in Preferences window thereby disabling code hints in code view: "Edit Menu > Preferences > Code Hints > Enable Code Hints".

Already tried this multiple times...Doesn't change anything..I called Adobe customer service...For example..when I type a single "(" it creates "()" then I have to hit backspace to enter the string in...I just want it to type the "(" like I did...Also if I type a double quote it wants to add another one...It is very confusing to use..

Lastly, I can never figure out where my cursor is throughout this process when it is automatically adding these items...

When you type an opening parenthesis or quote, Dreamweaver places the cursor between them. No need to delete the closing parenthesis or quote. Just start typing to enter your string.

But what if there already IS a close quote?  Then I have to manually delete the extra one added by DW.

This seemed to work...Why is it that Dreamweaver does not have these options in preferences?

  • "autoCloseQuotes": false,
  • "autoCloseBraces": false,

Currently these feature flags can be enabled/disabled by editing the json file.

We have a ER logged to add these preferences to UI, so users can directly customize these preferences within DW app.

We will update once this is available.

Can you please let us know if you are now able to disable code hints. Or the issue still exists.
