    Dreamweaver CS3 Paste HTML Problem

    dsbrett
      Hi, I'm a fairly basic user of Dreamweaver CS3. I used to be able to paste HTML into webpages with no problem. I have recently upgraded to CS3 and that menu command (Paste HTML) seems to have gone. Can anybody help?

      Thanks, your help would be appreciated!

          See if this Technote helps:
          http://www.adobe.com/go/8d3c7fb0

          Try the CopyPasteHtml.mxp file link on that page.

            If you want to paste the actual HTML code into a page, just switch to
            Code view, and paste.

            Copy, cut, and paste in Dreamweaver are context-specific. If you copy a
            section of a page in Design view, and paste it in Design view,
            Dreamweaver automatically copies and pastes the underlying HTML. If you
            copy in Code view, and paste into Design view, Dreamweaver assumes that
            you want to display the code (as you might want to do in an online
            tutorial), so it converts all the angle tags into HTML entities and
            displays the tags and attributes in the page.

            The simple rule is copy and paste from Code view to Code view, or from
            Design view to Design view.
