Anytime I edit an existing site or add a new site under "Manage Sites" and click "Done", Dreamweaver will hang with the spinning beach ball for 5-6 minutes. During that time the app is unusable. A pretty bad bug. After the hang time, the app works fine.
OSX version 10.7.4
Dreamweaver version 12.0
This only happens when I edit an existing site or create a new one. If I enter "Manage Sites" and just click "Done" without changing anything, this doesn't happen.
I have let the site cache complete and this issue still occurs when I create a new site and let the site cache complete. It hangs after the site cache is done.
I have the same problem.
Windows 7 x64, 12GB Ram, Dual Xeon 2.66 processors (12 threads)
Dreamweaver CS6 v12 build 5808.
It will freeze for 3-4 minutes and it is unusable. Then it works as normal. Seems to freeze when I open a file, save or switch between files in the app.
I tried to Disable Dreamweaver's Resolve To IP Address feature:
it did not help.
Do you have any 0 KB files in your local site folder?
0 KB files can cause DW to freeze or become non-responsive.
The solution is to remove the 0 KB file or simply add some text/carriage returns to it and the problem goes away.
