Dreamweaver CS6 freezes up constantly

Nov 24, 2012 8:49 PM

Tags: #cs6

Dreamweaver CS6 keeps freezing up on me whenever I try to use it. The freeze lasts like 15-20 seconds then when I start to use it again it freezes up almost imediately. I've downloaded updates for it and tried clearing my cache. Nothing has helped at all. I've had this problem since I loaded dreamweaver on my laptop. Is there any fixes to stop it from freezing? It doesn't crash just freezes/locks up.

    Is there a specific event that you try do when it freezes or 'lags'?

     

    Also, please tell us if you're on Mac OS or PC and what OS version.

    Are any of the pictures located on a network drive? That may be a reason. Has it always lagged this way or has it just started happening?

    Have you installed all available updates?

     

    Go to Help > About Dreamweaver, check the build version and let us know please. Also, are you on the Creative Cloud or is it a perpetual license?

    That is the current build for perpetual CS6 licenses.

     

    But, without more specific information relating to the lag, I'd not be a position to advice why/ how that is happening.

     

    Since it is not crashing, we wont even be able to get a crash report which would've helped us point out the issue.

    This is something I have noticed alot of too.

     

    It happens at random but always when cut and pasting a large amount of code. For example whenever I cut and paste the source of a webpage for analysis or clean up it freezes like this without fail.

     

    Is there an option we need to turn off?

    Are you working in Split view or straight code view when you paste the code?

    Try steps mentioned in the troubleshooting document below. Choose The preference file depending on your version of Dreamweaver.

    Also, you can try updating your video card drivers.
