The properties bar in Dreamweaver CS6 appears to be truncated, so that the Title and Target fields are not properly displayed. Each of these two fields is one or maybe two characters wide, so I can't enter any text into them, or read anything that is already there. I have searched through the Adobe forums, and on the Internet in general, and can't find any reference to this problem. Does anyone have any idea if there's a fix for it?
Any helpful suggestions most welcome!
Windows 8 64 bit; DW version 12 build 5861; a customized workspace with two panels on the right, one displaying Files & Assets and the other displaying CSS Styles, AP elements and Tag Inspector, and the Properties bar at the bottom (with lots of empty space to the right of the truncated fields). My laptop display is 1920 x 1080 and the attached second monitor is 1920 x 1200; the problems shows up regardless of which monitor I use. The text size is set at 100% for both displays.
I will check the thread you mentioned below and see if it helps.
Thank you very much for the prompt response!
I'd have to say it's new, as this is a new laptop with Windows 8, but I haven't had CS6 very long either. I will check on my other computer, which is Windows 7, this evening, and see if I have the same problem there.
Checking at home, and everything is fine, the Properties bar looks just as it should. Different OS, different monitor, different resolution... only thing the same is the version of DW... where do I start?!
I am also getting this problem. Have had Adobe CS6 for 6-7 months, previously on XP with no issues at all. Have just switched to Win 8 and am getting the truncation issue. Did this ever get resolved?
We have tried reproducing this issue on our machines here and we aren't able to do so.
Are you a subscription user? If yes, can you update to the latest version and let us know if you are still seeing this issue?
To update, go to Help->Updates and install the update.
Sorry, yes, I thought I had posted a reply!
I'm not a subscription user, but I do have the latest version of DW installed. I'm still seeing the problem on my Windows 8 laptop; it doesn't appear on the Windows 7 desktop I have at home.
The laptop is hooked up to an external monitor, and both are set at maximum resolution: 1920 x 1080 for the laptop, 1920 x 1200 for the external. The truncated fields look the same on both.I have tried changing the resolution, but it doesn't make any difference to the way DW displays.
Sigh!!. We tried to reproduce this issue with all the resolutions you mentioned here but couldn't. If you get time, can you send us a video of the exact steps you are doing along with your work files(if you can share them)
You can email them to email@example.com
The complete system information would also be helpful to us.
