My company just upgraded from Adobe CS 6 to Adobe CC (Finally!)

 

All the website administators, myself included, have Logitech gaming mice that we use to map all our Dreamweaver snippets to for quick access for converting text for web articles.

 

We take text from printed journals, and make it ready for websites, and the text typically contains a lot of supersript referecne numbers. We highlight the text, thumb the gaming key on the side of the mouse to warp the text with <sup> and </sup>. The keybaord shortcut for this action is mapped to the game button. 

 

I can't for the life of me find how to add a keybaord shortcut back to my snippets! Im going crazy with Google searches and it's coming up empty. Our productiviaty is really gone down and many of us are gonig back to Dreamweaver CS6. Any idea where this feature was moved to, it's essentail for our job!

Hi Charles,

 

Thanks for writing to us. Sorry to hear that the trigger key for inserting snippets were lost on upgrading from C6 to CC. Can you please try to follow the below steps to add the keyboard shortcut for the snippets and let us know if this fixes the issue you are facing.

 

Edit snippetsEdit snippets

 

Steps:

  1. Invoke Snippets panel from Window menu
  2. Locate the required Snippet and right-click on the same
  3. Select Edit from the context menu and see that Snippet dialog will appear
  4. Enter the required keyboard shortcut in Trigger key section

 

All the keyboard shortcuts assinged to Snippets will work with the trigger key+Tab key.

 

Also we recommend to have the Snippets synced to Cloud via Sync settings feature so that you can have a back-up of all the custom snippets created.

 

Please refer to this page for more info on sync settings feature.

 

Regards,

Nayan

Thank you, but I already understand the part about using the trigger key and tab.

 

The problem is when I highlight a number to make it superscripted to show it is a reference, I can't press Tab and the trigger key at the same time (like pressing shift and another key at the same time), it just overwrites the text with a tab or the trigger key.

 

I need to wrap the <sup> </sup> tags around the number like we've been doing for years in CS6. One can use CMD+B for bold and CMD+I for italic but as far as I can tell, there is no menu item for super and sub script so snippets are the only way for us to quickly format our medical documents with multiple superscripts per article. 

 

Triggger keys are great, I like them, but as an addition not a replacment to key mapping, not replacing. Is there any way I can use a work around to be able to highlight characters and active the snippet with a keystroke?

Current Snippets are not used to format text. They insert code.

 

Use Emmet shortcodes.  Type sup followed by tab.

Result:

<sup> </sup>

Then type or paste your number inside the tags.

Dreamweaver CC was rebuilt from ground up in 2017 with a new coding engine based on Brackets.  Long story short, many things have changed.  Keyboard shortcuts from the past no longer effect Snippet insertion.  As Nayan said, you will have to assign new Trigger Keys to Snippets from the Snippets panel. 

 

Keep in mind that Emmet shortcodes were also introduced to Dreamweaver CC.  Emmet is a time saving way to produce HTML markup with shortcodes followed by Tab key.  Example: type p>lorem followed by tab key.

 

RESULT:

<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Facere atque ad vitae labore, aliquid expedita sunt dolorum voluptate unde minima, dolores repudiandae! Architecto voluptates rerum corporis molestiae! Ea, numquam, inventore.</p>

 

I like Emmet.  However there's a conflict when Emmet shortcodes share the same Snippet Trigger Keys.  Snippets will always prevail.  I'll let you read more about Emmet below.
