I know how to write code, but I don't want to. I am small operation and ADDT allows me to do things in a fraction of the time. Time is money. Still, now that I know ADDT will work with CS4 I am not as frustrated about it. I will check out the competing product and play around with it. I began with InterAKT's products and continued on with the toolbox, so I began with a non-Adobe product, I am certainly not averse to going out the same way I came in.
Thanks for your comments and help. I feel I have options now at least.
Just want to add my disappointment. I was going to purchase DWCS4 today because my current install broke upon the time change. When I saw this announcement about the tool box, I decided I had better keep the version of DW that I have rather than upgrading to CS4. I really don't understand why Adobe would do this. Our web teams are doing wonderful things that would be impossible without the toolbox.It is upsetting that Adobe - you have done all of us a great disservice. Sometimes you wonder if they actually thought this through or just saw a lack of profit margin so wacked the product and it's users away. Hell, what do I do now.
At the very least I would have expected the functionality to be in the new DWC4 but it isn't...not even close.
I had hope of this when I read their release...it seemed to indicate that was the case, but 4 is no more functional than 3. There's very little difference other than aesthetics.
Does anyone know of an alternative to QuB (Query Builder), it's the only part of the toolbox I still use on a regular day-to-day basis, maybe Adobe can consider adding it to CS4 or at least making it available as a separate product. In an ideal world someone would resurrect the 'only works in Dreamweaver 2004MX' Advanced Query Wizard which is a fantastic tool for rapid query writing.
