This concerns Dreamweaver 12.1 build 5949 on OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2
I have been using Dreamweaver for years now and one of my favorite shortcuts is CMD + SHIFT + U which PUTs the file I am currently working on. I love it, but ever since the most recent updates to Dreaweaver came out (maybe the past 2) when I use this command Dreamweaver switches focus from the CODE VIEW (the one I am in) to the FILES window. Here is a rundown of how I execute this:
- type code into the code view
- do CMD + SJIFT + U
- CMD + TAB to go to the browser
- hit REFRESH to check the page
- CMD + TAB back to Dreamweaver
- start typing... but now I am in the FILES window and if I hit BACKSPACE then it asks if I want to delete the file.
This is annoying especially because I look at the keyboard when I type so when I am back in dreamweaver I am already typing out a string, then I look up and I am deleting a whole folder structure instead... or file... very frustrating...
Maybe someone can offer some insight on a better way of executing this... no I will not use LIVE CODE VIEW... that thing is lame.
I have some focus issues too on Win with Creative Cloud build -- although not the same as yours. My problem is with Expanded Files panel. On closing it, my focus changes to the Tag Inspector which I never use.
I'm planning on submitting a bug report. You may wish to do the same.
