The new collapse feature seems pretty arbitrary in how it functions, it definitely needs some additional work to be as useful as it should be.
At least you can still have all of the older versions installed until they repair issues (hopefully) that come up with the new one.
I was trying to collapse all the #page-… divs, and there was no way to select the one there. I was able to collapse some div in there, but not the one I need, because there was no line break. Also, the ones that WERE available to collapse, had the triangle in the NEXT line below the code, so you have no clue on what you are going to collapse.
Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded your request to the product team as well for their consideration.
Code collapse is an absolute cluster in this version. First, I had to stop the auto-collapse function by setting the number of lines to something like 99999 to keep it from auto-attempting a collapse. Why? Because every time I opened up code view the collapsed lines would be all wonky and mixed and out-of-place... like they randomly generated "close" to where they were originally.
After I set the line number to something extreme to prevent the "auto" feature from kicking in, I would go to code view and highlight my own lines, collapse them, and so be it. Sadly, I have to comment-out and un-comment (hide/show) a lot of various blocks from one week to the next... and the code collapse seems to show up okay, but now my pages have comment codes and other bits of text showing up randomly... like my commenting-out is commenting areas outside of what I see in the code view. It's almost like the code view is showing me a cached version of what it thinks is my code, but when I highlight/alter something I get very different results in the Design view.
Absolutely unusable. I need to find an OLD version of Dreamweaver, or I'll be forced to migrate to a different web development application.

The post you're replying to was started over 2 years ago and specifically deals with DW CC2015.
If you're having issues with CC2017, please start a new thread so people will see your post, rather than skipping this "answered" one.
As a paid subscriber, you can have CS6 Cloud, CC, CC 2014, CC 2015 and CC 2017 all installed on the same machine, at the same time (it's part of your subscription). They just won't run at the same time.

Thanks! Got CC2015 re-installed and it's performing wonderfully.
