I was using DW CS6 and there is a File>Convert choice. Is there a way to Convert in DW CC?


Thanks for the help.

    There are two lines that are changed with a change in DOCTYPE, namely

    • the first line  - <!doctype html> and
    • the first line in the HEAD section - <meta charset="utf-8">


    Hence, if you do a site wide find and replace, you will achieve the same result.

    Go to Modify > Page Properties > Title/Encoding and you can change the Doctype declaration, among other things, there.


    A find and replace would likely be faster if you need to do many pages though.
