I'm a long time Dreamweaver user. Now on CS 5.5
I started this week for the first time working with Zurb Foudation 4 and Twitter Bootstrap.
No matter what the choice of the framework is, Dreamweaver has difficulties working with frameworks.
I'm not talking about been able to see anything in design mode.
I'm aware that the design mode doesn't make much sense in Dreamweaver and never
use it any way. I work on my server or local server and check everything in several browsers.
The problem occurs when you start editing CSS or changing things in the page structure.
Dreamweaver starts rattling in the CSS Styles panel with every move I make.
This slows down my workflow extremely. I did try all workspaces, but that doesn't help.
I downloaded Aptana studio 3 and Sublime text 2 to see if that made any difference and yes they all work
without any problem or delay!
Is there any setting in Dreamweaver that you can change to be able to work with a framework in Dreamweaver without
such a delay in the workflow?
Sadly, no. But feel free to make feature requests.
I'm not going to make that request, because the fact only that the request has to be made now in 2013 says enough.
And I'm using Aptana studio 3 and sublime text 2 now.
It's sad to see Adobe Dreamweaver always be behind all important developments in the Web design world.
We can not just rest on the couple of extension makers that are out there and a solid frame work is one solution for that.
