I ... find it really hard to create files in Dreamweaver, as I feel that it creates extra useless code that is confusing.
Do you use a WYSIWYG, manually code or both?
I tend to code most by hand to, but I'm still using Dreamweaver most of the time, it contains most of the tools I use.
1. The first and obvious reason is one click to see the result
2. Code completion and code snippets, nice and quite configurable (this configuring takes some time, but saves a lot while working)
3. synchronizing with svn and testingservers
So I'm actually mostly using it as tortoisesvn, filezilla, a browser and a text-editor in one. It has many more functions, that if you learn to use them streamline your work. It gives you more than one way to accomplish a task you can use whatever you like best.
If your just using standard start documents with the graphical interface, it delivers code, but not really what I want. (and apparently you too) I think it's not bad for a WYSIWYG editor. And I don't think those functions are meant for you, these are there to help people that don't know much about the code to create what they want.
