Trying to correct bad links and hyperlink doesn't seem to work like earlier versions. In live format it won't let me just insert a hyperlink by highlighting a word and inserting the link. What are the new steps?

Working on Windows 7, have latest version of DW cc 2018.

Previously, I would highlight a word, then click hyperlink and add the url that I wanted to link.

Now I get a prompt asking whether to put it in front, after or nest. This does not create a highlighted hyperlinked word and I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

I have Dreamweaver cc 2018 and I do not get that screenshot with properties.

Also, is there no way to hyperlink to a website from a word on the page in live format?

Could you please explain your old steps that are no longer working in a little more detail?

In CC2018.1 under Windows 7, I don't have any issue with highlighting text in Live View and either adding a link in the Properties Window, or using the dialogue window under Insert > Hyperlink.

Maybe you had set a keyboard shortcut that is no longer associated with that menu command?

Double-click in Live View to edit.

Or switch to Design View.
