Where are the save and load buttons for the Find and Replace queries in the newest update? This was an issue when you released CC 17 and you updated later. I don't understand why it was removed for the 18 version. There are lots of people that use these find and replace searches every day.

Hi,

The Save/Load search queries is a hidden option same as in CC 2017.5. You need to add new keys for enabling this functionality, please follow the steps below to do so-

  • Make sure you have Dreamweaver CC 2018 installed. Open Dreamweaver and use the Advanced Find and Replace dialog at least once, and then close Dreamweaver.

On Windows:
  1. Open the Registry Editor - In the Start Menu, either in the Run Box or the Search box, type regedit and press Enter.
  2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Dreamweaver CC 2018\Advanced Find And Replace
  3. Right click and create a new string value with ShowHiddenOptions=TRUE.
  4. Close the Registry Editor.

On Mac:

  1. Use Finder to navigate to ~/Library/Preferences.
  2. Open Adobe Dreamweaver CC 2018 Prefs using a text editor.
  3. Find the [Advanced Find and Replace] section and add showhiddenoptions=TRUE.
  4. Save and close the file.
  • Open Dreamweaver. Open the Advanced Find and Replace dialog. You can now see the options to load and save queries.

I don't recall them being put back officially, though Adobe does give directions on how to re-enable save & load queries in CC2017:

Find and replace text, tags, and attributes

It's possible the same would apply to CC2018?

I checked the 2018 prefs and the show hidden options line isn't in there. I am looking through it more thoroughly now to see if I can find something else that might work.

The line isn't there to start off with, the instructions I posted (and now posted by Niharika) show the line needs to be added in order to re-activate the function.

Sorry, I didn't see the "add new string" part in the link you posted until just now.
