I am using dreamweaver cs6, and it keeps doing this wierd hang in which the window size of the application becomes small, and the menu: File, Edit etc. disappears. I have to shut it down via the task manager and restart, losing any unsaved work. I Dont know if this is a bug or a new feature I dont know about where im triggering some different mode. It usually happens after I get the greyed out screen when the application is busy and not responding.
Does this happen with all sites or just one?
Does this happen with all pages or just one?
As a test, go to File > New > Blank HTML > select a layout.
Does the new page cause DW CS6 to freeze?
I havent had a chance to test on multiple sites. It does not freeze on a blank page. It happens on different pages. It mostly happens around saving files which i have set up to automatically ftp. sometimes when trying to save two files quickly, it will grey out, like a modal dialog on a website, not letting me do anything for a few seconds. it is after this that it comes back with the menu bar gone.

IMO "upload on save" is a dangerous option. What if you make a mistake and save a corrupted file? It now becomes part of your site. Try turning that option off and see if it fixes your freezing problem.
I was posting here to see if others had experienced the same thing and there was a fix for it. Have gone back to DW5. I like my workflow, and it's not working in DW6 right now. thanks for your help anyway.
