After updating to Dreamweaver 13.1 when I open a files it replaces the file previously opened.
So if I open index.php then news.php, the index.php file is renamed to news.php and contains the code of news.php . Giving me 2 files exactly the same open. Any ideas whats going wrong?
Not sure if these details are enough to go, however my steps are as follows...
1. Open Dreeamweaver
(application opens normally)
2. Open fluid.html
(file opens normally)
3. Open fluid-style.css
(file opens normally but fluid.html also becomes fluid-style.css too)
4. Open respond.min.js
(file opens normally but the two fluid-style.css files become respond.min.js too, in this instance all three filesrespond.min.js)
Below image is of step 4) three files all named respond.min.js even though I orginally opened three different files, .html file, .css file and .js file
This happens with every file I try to open.
I am also having this issue. Here are the steps that have caused it:
This only began happening with the latest update. I am also running OSX 10.8.4.
I've tested this opening local files from Finder and that does not cause this issue. It specifically when opening the file through another program to edit, like ForkLift or any other FTP program. So it may be related to the creation of temporary files in the Caches folder?
Just wanted to give another update.
This seems to happen with every kind of file BESIDES CSS files. This includes HTML, JS, PHP, and TXT. This also only happens when accessing remote files. Local files open fine.
I created a new administrator account and followed the same actions and still had the issue, so I don't think it's a matter of corrupt permissions. I also tested to see if this occurred in other apps (opening PHP, TXT, etc. files with TextEdit) and did not have the same issue.
Update: After switching back to my main account, the CSS file was now being replaced just like anything else. After restarting the computer, it went back to its previous method of replacing everything but the CSS file.
Very weird. Have you filed an official bug report?
Just wanted to bring this issue up again, as the new user account I set up to deal with this issue, has now started to have the same issues as the other orginal account. Exactly the same issue, I open a file in dreamweaver (its fine) I open another file and it corrupts the first file re-naming it (to the second file opened) and featuring the same code as the second file too.
Any ideas why this would be the case?
Just FYI, I submitted a bug report regarding this after my last message and received a response that they have managed to replicate the issue and are working on a fix. No idea when that may happen, though. Still having the same annoying issue and it was imperative to my workflow before, so hopefully there will be an update soon.
Hello, I encounter exactly the same issue: I use Dreamweaver and Forklift and every time I want to open a file directly from the FTP server, the already opened files are replaced by the new one...
Please find a solution quicly as it is nearly impossible to work like this...
All the best,
