Dreamweaver Links

Nov 19, 2013 3:20 PM

About half the time I have to go to the source code to enter a link in Dreamweaver CC.  It will not take them in the options panel.  If I go to source, rool around a bit, then come back to design it will take a lin k properly.  This is a consistent problem'

    • Which ver & build # of DW?
    • Which operating system?
    • Does this problem occur in all pages?  If you create a new, blank HTML page can you insert a link normally?
    • Does this problem occur in all Sites?
    • Do you use any 3rd party Extensions in DW?  Have you tried disabling them?

    @ billkilborn : Just noticed that you need to select / highlight that part of the text which you want to make a link .

     

    1. Highlight the part of text which ou want to be a link
    2. Go to the Properties Inspector(Window>Properties)
    3. Add the link / target
    4. See them added in Code

     

    Hope this helps

    Don't take it personally, there is nothing in your original post that points to your experience level with the program. Part of figuring out problems is verifying the basics, hence the  "is it plugged in" style starting point.

     

    Have you tried clearing the program cache file/config folder yet?

     

    A corrupt program cache can cause all kinds of issues, clearing it will get rid of many of them...

    I'm definitely not seeing the same behavior in mine (version 13.1 Build 6443) on Windows 7 or Windows 8 (no 8.1 update).

     

    Maybe it was a bad install?

     

    You might try uninstalling, running the cleaner tool and reinstalling/reupdating to see if that takes care of the weirdness.
