Have you tried re-creating the site cache?
OSX version 10.7.4
Dreamweaver version 12.0
This only happens when I edit an existing site or create a new one. If I enter "Manage Sites" and just click "Done" without changing anything, this doesn't happen.
I have let the site cache complete and this issue still occurs when I create a new site and let the site cache complete. It hangs after the site cache is done.
... and now all of a sudden the problem is not occurring any more. :/ Strange...
I have the same problem.
Windows 7 x64, 12GB Ram, Dual Xeon 2.66 processors (12 threads)
Dreamweaver CS6 v12 build 5808.
It will freeze for 3-4 minutes and it is unusable. Then it works as normal. Seems to freeze when I open a file, save or switch between files in the app.
I tried to Disable Dreamweaver's Resolve To IP Address feature:
it did not help.
Do you have any 0 KB files in your local site folder?
0 KB files can cause DW to freeze or become non-responsive.
The solution is to remove the 0 KB file or simply add some text/carriage returns to it and the problem goes away.
I do not use the Sites, I just use Files. So this possible fix does not work for me. Thanks for trying Nancy.
You do not use sites? Why? Is it that you are only editing content?
Should this discussion be in a separate thread since it has no commonality with the subject here?
