Link field in Properties bar "sticks"?

Feb 27, 2013 9:21 AM

I'm using Dreamweaver CS6 on Mac OS X 10.8.2. I've been trying to select some text in Design view that has a link; then copy the text of the link from the Link field in the Properties bar; then select another bit of text and paste the url into the link field. (Thus giving two bits of text the same link.)

 

However, the contents of the Link box seems to be "Sticking", and not relating to anything that I'm actually clicking on.

 

Who has gone screwy: me, or DW?

 

Thanks

    I'd suggest you copy and paste in code view.

    I'm unable to replicate this issue. Have you checked for updates for DW? Also yes, clearing your cache may help: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/494811

    Glad to know that. Yes, the major build is 12.0. But there is a sub-version 12.0.4 (if you're a creative cloud member).

     

    Windows or Mac: Help > Updates to check for any available updates

     

    Btw, are you on the Creative Cloud or are you using a 'perpetual' (standard) version?

    Well, like I said try opening Adobe Update Manager or even from DW > Help > Update to check and download all available updates. That will help.

    12.0.3 is the latest update for pepetual license.

    http://www.adobe.com/support/dreamweaver/downloads_updaters.html#dwcs6 12712

     

    When things go haywire, try Sites > Advanced > Create New Site Cache.

    Yes, the major version number even within DW will only show 12.0.

     

    12.0.3 is a sub-version release. Unless 12.1 is out, you wont see it anywhere within DW. One way to find out is the 'Build number' which is usually something like 5xxx or 6xxx (numeric).

    Well even CS6 wil show you the Build number - in the About box - like this:

    Anyway, glad your issue got resolved! Please do post back if you have any further questions.

     

    Happy to help

    (BTW -- you're on build 5842, which suggests you're not up to date!)

     

    This is one of my development laptops I'm on for the moment. We push updates via a common updater file - pending! Should be done this week.
