This is really annoying feature of dreamweaver, I assume it serves a purpose but I do not know what it is. If I open a document (I generally always work in code view) then select the area I wish to, say, copy and then press control and c, the whole block of code becomes selected (so my selection expands). That isn't what I selected so why does it do this? If I click outside the code view - on to css styles for example - then I can now select the lines of code I want and can work with the code as intended. If I save the document, tab to another document in dreamweaver and tab back again, the same happens. So, everytime I open a document I have to click CSS styles before I can work with the document as intended. I've been working with this for a while and it's go to the point where it makes me cry. It's not quite as annoying as working with the old ftp service but it's not far off.
Cheers Johnny! So, quite a popular, emotional, tormenting problem that has not been solved.
I think Adobe's party line will be that CS5 solves it.
