    Spinning Beachball when Preview in Browser is selected

    don_langevin
      I've spent several hours looking at the threads for slow Dreamweaver, and have yet to find anything that works for me. Whenever I choose, Preview in Browser, I get a spinning beachball, and the page finally loads after 30-60 seconds.
      I'm using an Intel Mac on a localhost server. Everything was OK until recently. Now it's just too time consuming to wait to see previews. Any original thoughts from the forum or anyone at Adobe?

          I'm sorry that I don't know the solution to what you describe. But I wanted
          to mention that I have barely, if at all, used the Preview feature in the
          past year or two (and many web sites built).

          Dreamweaver's Design View is pretty accurate in the later versions, so I
          tend to use it to get a general idea of the layout I'm producing, uploading
          the files to the server to check them in real browsers.

            Don't you have a server on the development PC then Patty ??

            That way I can work on a PC that is not connected to the net - like a
            laptop .

              I do when I'm doing server-side stuff, but that's rare. I never work without
              an Internet connection - at least, I've been at this for 11 years, and I
              haven't yet! :-)
