Hi all,

With dreamweaver CC  v18

I am having trouble when I click (in code window) - inside a span tag - such as inside the class tag.... when I do, then the whole span tag gets highlighted and I can not see the cursor as I move the arrows left / right to see where I am so I can edit properly.

Q: Is there a setting somewhere to make it easier to see the cursor and maybe get the highlighting to be easier to use (or vanish)?

<span class="print_16 box"> this is a test</span>

How messy do you want to get your hands with the files that run DW's themes?

This guy made a very nice set of themes that get rid of that issue, among others and they're pretty easy to install using Adobe's knowledgebase article:

Dreamweaver CC 2018 / light and dark themes

Learn how you can customize the colors of your code elements in Dreamweaver.

(replace all the code of a duplicate theme with the new theme code and save)
