Can't view content in design/preview - URGENT

Aug 1, 2007 4:51 PM

I am creating a website using Dreamweaver on my MacBook Pro (os X). I have created 3 other website and have not encountered this problem.

I am using a table to make a LONG page on my website (the designed made the whole thing in table layouts, so I can't change to layers or it will much up the other 40 pages).

The table is 21000px long, and I can no longer see the table's content in split or design view - the code is there, and I can preview it in browsers, and I can scroll... it just doesn't display anything except the page background color past 16950 px.

Both the table and column have no height restrictions, and there is no "positioning" attribute for the table.

Please help, as this website is due up tomorrrow night!!

    "Dreamweaver 8 does not fully render large files in Design view on Macintosh

    When you open certain large files in Design view in Dreamweaver 8 on the
    Macintosh, Dreamweaver does not render the complete page. This typically
    causes the last section of the page to be cut off. This issue does not occur
    in earlier versions of Dreamweaver.

    The size limit is not the number of bytes in the source file, but the
    display size to which the markup renders. Dreamweaver 8 currently has a
    limitation of 32,768 pixels by 32,768 pixels on the Macintosh. (Ref. 201845)

    The Dreamweaver engineering team is researching this issue. Below, find two
    workarounds for this issue:

    * Change the Set Magnification pop-up menu in the lower right corner of
    the Document window to 99% or 101%. You can type these values directly into
    the Set Magnification pop-up menu.

    * If possible, break your page into smaller pieces over multiple files.
