Any toolbar item that has the arrow to show more items if clicked instantly crashes DW.
Mac OS 10.8.3 - DW CS6 ver 12 build 6006
Example toolbar items: "Open documents", "Format Source Code", etc
This continues to get worse. If it doesnt crash then main menu items don't open. This is rare it usually crashes completely.
I have fully re-installed DW. This is not a problem in any other app particularly Adobe apps, AI,PS etc all work fine and toolbar submenus do what I expect.
This seems to be just a DW issue.
This sounds like a corrupted installation. Go to Help > Deactivate.
Uninstall DW with the CS Cleaner tool. This will wipe DW CS6 & residual files off your HD.
Open your Adobe Application Manager and Download DW CS6 again.
Report back with your results.
This happens if I open any file in DW. Mostly I am opening local files I am working on.
If I click on something like "format sourcecode" the toolbar - it hangs for a couple seconds and then crashes.
Then I get the option to send a report to Apple and another one to Adobe.
Well I had my fingers crossed that DW CC would make a difference, installed it today and sad to say, the exact same thing.
I opened illustrator, photoshop, flash, fireworks and tried clicking pull down toolbar icons and they all work fine.
This is really just a dreamweaver problem for me.
I have now tried to get the same result with every Adobe CC product. It never happens with any program but Dreamweaver. And with DW it is consistent and instant. I have also found that right clicking the toolbar in DW does the same thing and again not in any other app on my machine including all of the Adove CC apps.
How do I get some official Adobe customer support on this? This product is unusable to me and I have paid for it.
I get crash reports generated everytime that seems to point to some potential problems, but somebody needs to look at those.
Looking at the crash report that goes to Apple is aligned with what I have specified is the problem, since it is only the popup menus in the toolbar that causes this.
I get what appears to be the exact same error report if I am clicking a toolbar icon with a submenu or right clicking the toolbar - here is an excerpt - there are over 500 lines with the PopupMenuHandler menuNeedsUpdate message:
