    replacing images CS4 - must remove first - WHY?

    cathykimball Level 1

      Since I upgraded to CS4 in January (I Know, great timing) in my new Windows 7 system I have found several very annoying problems with simple tasks.

      1 - Every time I need to replace a path to an image or replace a link I find it is necessary to first remove the existing path or link to put the new one in . I just finished doing this in a site I picked up to manage for around 150 images, thus the frustration is fresh in my mind.


      2- When I choose to insert an existing CSS class or ID item I will choose the one I want from the dropdown list and click OK only to find that it defaulted to the first one on the list rather than the one I chose. This really messed me up until I discovered what was going on.


      3- When I go to st up a new site, rather than point to the folder I choose it goes to the next folder up from it. This means I have to type in the actuall folder that I am choosing.


      These may just be little annoying glitches but they can really effect work flow. Are these thing that others are experiencing? If so are there any fixes for these issues?

          1.  I've noticed it with design view, not when editing the path though.  And if there are 150 images that need to be maintained, I would have personally looked into gallery scripts to handle that in a database rather than editing tons of images and pages.


          2.  I have not experienced this so I cannot comment.  Is it reproducible?  If so you should submit a bug report: Adobe - Feature Request/Bug Report Form


          3.  This is a Windows specific bug that was introduced with Vista SP2 and Windows 7 launch.  I'm not sure that CS5 users are experiencing this but I have seen plenty of posts from CS4 and earlier versions that this problem does exist on those operating systems.  Unfortunately I do not believe a patch is available yet for this issue.
