I have a trial version of dreamweaver, but as soon as a try to create a CSS the file says it cannot lint. I have tried all the troubleshoots but nothing seems to work. I have turned off my firewall, and it made no difference. I am operating windows 10.
Very frustrating for a novice who is trying to assess whether to buy the software
Linting is turned on by default, but you might get the error "Cannot lint code" (Windows) or "Linting operation timed out" (Mac). It happens because Dreamweaver uses a random port for linting. The port is either occupied or blocked by a firewall. See this KnowledgeBase article for help: Troubleshooting linting and bootstrap issues | Dreamweaver CC 2015.
Yes tried all that and to no avail. To be fair. I had been through these already
