    Code Inspector is Whacko

    beaverfish
      I'm about to burn the dreamweaver cdrom. I've been dealing with this ever since 8 came out and i've had enough so I thought I would check here to see if there is a fix before I uninstall the software.

      The problem is this: Every time I leave the code inspector, say, to look at the browser results, when I come back, the code inspector automatically scrolls somewhere to the top of the page. Why?! Now I have to scroll back down to where I was coding - which gets old real quick. Why can't code inspector just stay where I left it?

      It seems very counter productive to have your editor change the position (drastically!) of your code on the screen every time you leave and return.

      What is the solution for this? Thanks.

          Dude works perfectly here......
          .......view in browser and return to dreamweaver, No problem.
          Exactly where I left it.

            In your setup, are you using two monitors (design on left, code inspector on right screen)? If I split the screen on one monitor (top code, bottom design) is doesn't reposition when I come back. In dual monitor mode, it does this at home also.

            It auto selects all the code in the first div found and scrolls up to the first div.

              Un fortunately Funds don`t run to 2 monitors.......
              perhaps problems happen with dual monitors.

                That's my setup but I don't see the re-positioning behaviour which you are
                seeing.

                When I leave the Code Inspector to do something else then return, the
                cursor's at the exact same position in the Code Inspector that I left it.
