We just bought upgrades for our entire department to dreamweaver cs6 about 2 weeks ago. Today for the first time I've been trying to make use of the new fluid grid layout system. I got some of the page put together and when I then tried to insert a new fluid layout div I got an error message saying "Could not find Dreamweaver Fluid Grid style sheet". I wasn't sure what to make of it so I googled it. I found someone with a similar, not exact, error message and someone suggested they double check their css file to see if it was missing a closing }. I double checked my css files and they were fine. I tried reinstalling dreamweaver in case a file got corrupted. No go. After reopening the file, now my fluid grid pink overlays won't display.
It's as though the stylesheet where the fluid grid styles are defined isn't being recognized, however at the same time, some styles defined in that stylesheet ARE being applied to the page, but not all of them.
I called adobe support, sat on hold forever only to be told that because we purchased a downloaded version of the upgrade, we don't get the 90 days of support but have to pay $39. Are you kidding me adobe? No support without paying after we just paid literally thousands of dollars in upgrades to our cs6 packages?
Another thing that's odd is that if I start a new fluid page and save the files in a new folder, the insert new fluid grid div works fine. I know it sounds like some stylesheet got hosed, but as I said, I have double and triple checked the css file and don't see a problem. Anyone have an idea what might be wrong? thanks.
I found the problem and in fact it was a problem with the stylesheet. However, it wasn't due to any invalid styles. Apparently there are comments near the top of the stylesheet that tell dreamweaver that that's the stylesheet where the fluid grid content is stored. It would have been helpful if they included additional comments like "DON'T REMOVE THESE COMMENTS OR YOUR'RE SCREWED AND WE WON'T HELP YOU FIGURE OUT WHY!!!". Specifically the section I removed which caused it to break was this...
