What a waste of money! Is the program seriously set up so you can't copy and paste into the "find and replace" features? I can't possibly imagine why a programmer would disable this so I am assuming that I must be doing something wrong.

Also, what part of "save all" does the program not understand?! You gotta sit there and press "okay" or whatever for each and every page?

Where is the option to preview the page you are working on in the browser of your choice? Does it really just allow you to preview through their &$%%&#!# window provided?

Oh, and for some reason it is also set up to save html files with the extension .htm as default even if they were originally .html files(doing a 'save as' for example)... why?

On top of everything else, it's as slow as a snail. IMO, whoever did the programming needs to look into another line of work, something they are better at.

I'll take my freebie download from a few years back over this program. I originally bought Namo Web Editor about a year ago for my teenage son but never really checked it out until now, while trying to get some work done on his old computer. Instead of getting work done, the program made more work for me.

I liked the old version that had a twist on nagware. If you didn't buy a copy of the trialware after the expiration, it automatically added something like "ILLEGAL COPY OF NAMO WEB EDITOR" in the Title tag of all your pages. It was easy enough to go back and manually edit all those out, but so many people never did.

It used to be that if you Googled "ILLEGAL COPY OF NAMO" you would get thousands of results. The funny thing was that many of them were big companies! :)

I have to say that I tried it a couple of years ago and for the 50 or so that I spent I though it was good value. Dreamweaver it is not, but then DW costs eight times more and also has its basic faults.

(Like no site wide spell check for example).
