I also find the constantly vanishing cursor very annoying. It usually takes 4 seconds to come back. This didn't happen in Dreamweaver CS4.
I'm glad I finally see someone else complaining about this. Happens to me constantly, and it's extraordinarily aggrivating. For what it's worth, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3. System appears to have integrated GPU:Intel Q35 Express Chipset Family in Device Manager. Dreamweaver CS5 Version 11.0 Build 4909.
The last reliable and stable version of Dreamweaver - at least for
everyone in our office - is CS4. We lose cursors, the CSS panel goes
corrupt - ftp hangs - design view is worse than ever. That said, I do
love CS5.5, would love to be able to use it in my everyday workflow, and
hope that it's a quirk with our computers (we run Vista Ultimate 64 and
Windows 7 Pro 64) and not something that everyone is experiencing.
