Dreamweaver CC Background

Jul 4, 2013 5:15 PM

I have just changed to Dreamweaver CC and the design page background is black. In Dreamweaver 5.5 it is white. How do I change that,

 

Many Thanks,

 

Robin Chapple

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, you have not installed the default version of DWCC.

     

    Uninstall DW, using the procedure here. Reinstall directly from Adobe Creative Cloud.

    Hi yallambie3085,

     

    Please try the steps mentioned below.

     

    1. Sign out and then sign in again in the Creative Cloud app.
    2. To sign out, click the gear icon and then Choose Preferences >  General > Account; and then click Sign Out from Creative Cloud.
    3. Restart your computer.
    4. Launch Creative Cloud app again and Sign In.
    5. You should see an Install link next to Dreamweaver now

     

    Thanks

    @Yallambie,

    background:transparent  has been known to cause this in CS6 and CC.  Remove transparent from your CSS code and it should be just fine in Design View.

    White is not valid CSS.  Also the default font style is normal.  You don't need to express what is already there by default.  It just clutters your files with unnecessary code.

     

    Try this instead of what you have now.  Save. 

     

    body {

              font-family:  Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

              font-size: 16px;

              background: #FFF;

              margin:0;

              }

    Can we see a link to your site?  I suspect other code errors are coming into play here.

    CC requires much stricter adherence to web standards than ever before. 

     

    On that one page, you have 44 HTML errors that need to be fixed. Some are very serious error that can cripple your site in modern browsers.

    http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rotary979 0.org.au%2F4a%2Fcomm%2Findex.asp

     

    You have about 23 CSS errors (excluding the Yahoo UI code) that need attention.

    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?profile=css21&warning=0&u ri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rotary9790.org.au%2F4a%2Fcomm%2Findex.asp

     

    In summary, this site could really benefit from a total rebuild. 

     

    In the meantime, use the code validation tools below to check your code regularly  and fix reported errors before they become a problem.

    CSS - http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

    HTML - http://validator.w3.org/

     

    In Design View, disable CSS.  Go to View > Style Rendering > untick Display Styles.

     

     

    Good Luck!

    DW does prepare proper code. But users will often direct DW to do improper things, especially if they edit pages directly in the code.
