Whay are the color icons in Dreamweaver CC (version 13 mac) gone? Very bad
Much harder to see if i'm connected to remote site is one very frustrating thing.
I managed to replace some of the icons with versions from DW6. But many are still missing.
Does anyone have a good tip for replacing all of them?
I understand that having color make things much easier to differentiate.Howeve you can still easily find a difference when connected to FTP server. May be the screenshot below help you find the difference.
When you are connected to FTP the connectors are plugged and it is in a rectangular box.
I hope that helps.
In other words, you're not missing anything, they were removed.
IIRC someone was able to basically hack the program files to add them back. I think this was the post: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4755146#4755146
Things might be in a different spot now, but it may give you some clue where to look anyway.
Well ... I know they where removed ... but I'm missing them
The bottom of the thread in that link leads to this statment from Adobe
"To help you focus on the page and avoid distraction from colorful elements in the user interface, color options for Insert icons have been deprecated."
Ha ha ... so I need help focus on the page and not get distracted by color icons
I think it would be good to have an option to choose color or gray. Like it was before.
It's not helping me to focus on the page with only gray icons. What a stupid thing to say ...
I think a little color makes things look better (and easier to know if i'm connected to the server or not).
Witch one below stands out the most?
If it ain't broke don't fix it. You have had colored icons since day one. Apparently it wasn't that much of a distraction for the hundreds of thousands of websites likely created and the millions of lines of code written.
Whenever you make a substantial UI change like this you need to make it OPTIONAL as whatever handful of people you spoke with does not speak for the rest of your user base.
Removing the colour icons from the file explorer has been irritating, have not got used to the new layout. The colours help to quickly browse folder and find files. Adobe should consider at least making this an option. It may seem like a small thing, but it is irritating and I loose time trying to find out why they are gone, that there is no solution (unless I try to hack it somehow, more time lost) and writing something here not convinced that this will change anything. I suppose I at least have a few months to consider alternatives before considering being bound by another 12 months of subscriptions.
I jus made a wish
If a lot of us do maybe we'll get them back.
Colored Icons in File panel
Colored icons in the Files panel have been reinstated. Please look for more info at: http://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/whats-new-dreamweaver-13-2.ht ml
This is fixed with 13.2 update & is made live now. Please install & provide feedback.
That is misleading Shambu. You have reinstated color icons for FOLDERS, not for everything. So with 80% of the votes saying to at least give us a choice you still aren't listening to us. ONE person commented on why they want folders to be a different color to know whether on a remote server or not. So congratulations you have listened and solved that one persons dilemma. What about the rest of us?
Currently we have brought back the color icons for folders to help distingush between different views. We will take your feedback & get back to you on this.
