    codeview font goes wacky

    abeall Level 3
      This is the first time I've ventured into the DW forum, so I apologize if this is a common question, but searching has turned up anything.

      My codeview is fine. Usually. Sometimes, with *certain files*, it looks like this:
      http://abeall.com/files/temp/dw_codeview.wacky.gif

      Stange thing is, if I copy and paste the entire code contents into a new fresh file, the new file's code view goes from the normal font into this strange unreadable font.

      Any ideas? Thanks.

          Have you tried repairing your font folder? Search for TweakUI or
          TweakXP.

            Uck. I really doubt that's it, because normally the font shows up fine.

            I determined that there is some lines that cause the problem, actually it's the lines in my screen capture. The original files must have been made with Microsoft Word(uck!) and the meta-tags are doing weird things to DW's codeview.

              Try going into the prefences area, then to the fonts section, then select the code fonts option. At that point you can select which font and size you want to use for displaying your code text.

                Eeew, I did not pay attention to the code before. M$ code is ugly!

                  Anyone play with your computers' font display settings, not the DW settings?

                    No, like I said, it's a particular file that the code-view font is messed up with. All other files and new files show up correct. The preferences are fine.

                    > Eeew, I did not pay attention to the code before. M$ code is ugly!
                    Well, it took me awhile to even be able to read it! And you should see the rest of the code... yuck! Maybe Dreamweaver is just matching the font ;-) It is a bit ironic...

                    > Anyone play with your computers' font display settings, not the DW settings?
                    I'm the only one who uses the computer I experienced this one, and no, I haven't changed anything with the display settings. I'll test some other computers to see what happens.

                    The weird part is, like I said, it's the code in this particular file that *causes* DW to change the code-view font. If I have a normal file, and I paste this code in, the font changes.

                    It's seriously like DW recognizes MS generated code and gets upset. I *do* have to wonder if its a long forgotten programmers prank that's resurfacing!

                      I think it's a great feature, it lets you know you have a bunch of
                      garbage code You don't want to use that code, do you?

                        Oh, of course I don't want to! But, I have to... :-(
