Storing DW snippets in the cloud

Tags: #dreamweaver #cs6 #cc



was sent here by the Adobe Dreamweaver management on Facebook. I lately wrote nearly the same posting here in October 2012 regarding the DW CS6 version. I still want to change to DW (CC this time) but can't because Adobe seems not to be able to make snippets storable in the cloud such as my Dropbox folder or any other given path.


Just for there any opportunity to do so in CC?


DW is absolutely unusable for workgroups or a multi workplace installation if there isn't.


By the is a shame that Adobe did not implement this feature because other IDEs (especially Eclipse) provide it since years.


Thanks for any answer...and I am not upset....just a little disappointed.

    I believe This still works in CC, steps 5 and 6 are the ones of interest...



    You may need to turn on hidden files/folders (if they're not turned on already) to see the Snippets on your desktop though.


    EDIT: Changed the above to remove "I believe".


    It does work as expected, I just tested by moving my snippets from CS4 to CC and all of them function correctly. As Nancy points out, it would be a simple process to save them to a thumbdrive (or simply email them to collaborators) to get them into their Snippets folders.

    Copy your custom snippets to a flash drive and port them to other computers.

    This is a user-to-user forum.   Feel free to submit an official feature request that the Adobe developers will see.  If you state your reasons well & enough people ask for it, this might make it into some future release.
