Dreamweaver CS4/Windows 7 : Quirks?

Msg#: 4200786 posted 3:16 pm on Sep 12, 2010 (gmt 0)

Anyone using Windows 7 with DW CS4? Have you noticed any quirks? I have some, specifically with selecting files and/or directories.

One I've noticed when setting up a new site, I will browse to my local directory but I can't select that directory. It selects one level up. For example if I was selecting C:\clients\sites\site1
I browse there but it picks c:\clients\sites instead.

I've found out that if I creat c:\clients\sites\site1\images and select that images folder then it will select site1.

I have a feeling this is a W7 issue as I also run CS4 on an XP machine and it doesn't do this.

Anyone have any issues like this and know of any fixes for it?

What happens when instead of just selecting the target file/folder you just double-click on it top open it?
I can only assume this is a W7 quirk. There will certainly be some CS4 updates from Adobe to fix those issues from W7 users.

Not sure, will try that. I found on another website that when selecting images, for example, to replace an existing image, it doesn't update. But if you select another image in the dialog box, THEN select yours it will update. Weird.

Maybe it's DW caché what is not updating, whenever you do a change, you need to refresh your design view to see the changes, no matter if they were code or visual.
