    Dreamweaver slow like a tortoise (#2)

    Tropical Soul Community Member

      I see this discussion got locked!! Wonder why that happened?

       

      However moving on today I got real excited when I saw two updates in my CC update window I thought that maybe the long awaited update to fix the slow issue  in Dreamweaver CC that has been bogging down my productivity was here but alas it was only an Indesign update.

       

      Come on guys this issue was reported months ago, I partook in a desktop session with Deep on this and still no fix and now the new Mac OS is on the horizon and still no fix for the last one. Hate to see what happens in Sept when Yosemite is released we will all be really behind.

       

      Please no comments about no one else experiencing this problem - we have all heard that song!

          In case you haven't noticed, Adobe is hosting a "what's next in Creative Cloud" event next Wednesday: www.adobe.com/go/ccnext. That suggests new versions of CC apps are likely to be released fairly soon. Whether the new version of Dreamweaver will fix your problem remains to be seen. But I don't think you'll have long to wait.

            Hi Tropical Soul,

             

            From what I know, a lot of bugs related to Mavericks has been fixed in the latest update. Like David says, can you let us know if you still have problems after installing the latest update?

             

            Thanks,

            Preran

              Slow like molasses...

               

              Running Yosemite, 8 core MacPro (Late 2013), 64 gigs of RAM, DW 2014.1

               

              A constant exercise in patiences as each movement prompts the spinning beach ball.

               

              What does work if CS6. no blatant inefficient routines seem to be running in that app.

                That is normally caused by either protocol relative links (links starting with // rather than http ot https) or a large number of @import rules in your css. Have you checked your code for both of those?

                  ""That is normally caused by either protocol relative links (links starting with // rather than http ot https) or a large number of @import rules in your css. Have you checked your code for both of those?""

                   

                   

                  Yes, what's most frustrating is that even on a super simple page the beach ball is seen far too often.

                   

                  Here's the code from one such simple page (and it was slow even before I added the links to jquery):

                  <!doctype html>

                  <html>

                  <head>

                   

                   

                  <meta charset="UTF-8"><meta name="description" content="Carlsbad Aquafarm is Southern California’s only shellfish aquafarm growing eco-friendly mussel, oyster, clam, abalone, scallop and culinary seaweed since 1990 in Carlsbad, California">

                    Have you tried wrapping the the jquery and google analytics codes in html comments yet?

                     

                    I've had issues in the past (not with my current DW CC 2014 June release) where an external script link would cause what you describe. In those instances I would copy the script and link to it locally to fix the problem.

                      The problem was there prior to the jquery addition. So commenting out the jquery just returns the code to the same state and ran slower than it should.

                        Do you have any null protocol links //: in your documents?  Often these links to TypeKit or Edge Web Fonts as an example, cause DW to become unresponsive.  The simple fix is changing to http:// or https:// protocols.

                          Nancy, no Null Protocals. The whole app is super slow. Just creating a style takes way too long in comparison to the available computing power.

                            DW 2014.1, which I'm assuming is the version you are running, does not efficiently render Google Analytics script.  Load times can take up to 2 or 3 minutes and working in the file is very inefficient.  GA scripts did not cause this problem prior to DW 2014.1, at least for me.

                            I emailed the simplest of RWD HTML file to Subhadeep at Adobe that had basically only GA script and the problem was reproducible at Adobe.  As I recall, Subhadeep filed a bug report for me. The page was:

                            Since, with this very simple page, I could get Adobe to also have the slowness problem when GA script was involved, it proves that DW 2014.1 has rendering problems when GA script is in the page, and reference to it, I assume causes the same issues.

                             

                            Here's the thread where Subhadeep noted that he filed a bug report on this slowness problem Why does DW CC 2014.1 Fluid Grid load HTML file that contains Google Analytics Tracking Code script so slowly?
