I am currently using Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 and am thinking of upgrading to CS6 because I don’t really like CS5.5. But I’m not sure what the main differences are between 5.5 and 6 so I’m not sure if it makes sense to pay hundreds of dollars to upgrade. Here are my problems with Dreamweaver CS5.5 -
FTP - The entire FTP functionality in Dreamweaver has always been incredibly slow and oftentimes completely worthless. It’s so incredibly frustrating that Dreamweaver’s FTP has always sucked, and 5.5 didn’t improve it at all.
New Site Manager - I miss the simple site wizard interface of Dreamweaver 4, now it’s a little complicated to get a new site set up.
Checking Cache Files - When you create a new site via the site manager, CS5.5 automatically checks thousands of files, oftentimes locking up my entire computer for a minute or two when there are no files to check since they don’t exist!
Hidden Notes File - Why the heck does Dreamweaver always create those hidden notes files everywhere?
Enable Cloaking - I hate how Dreamweaver CS5.5 automatically enables cloaking, meaning I can’t see the .htaccess file.
.htaccess File - Dreamweaver still does not consider .htaccess to be a valid file extension so it will never open it up!
And tons of other stuff that I can’t think of. Anybody know how Dreamweaver CS6 compares to CS5.5?
You can’t add dynamic text to your ad until you’ve finished creating your campaign or ad group – adCenter Problem
I am in the process of setting up a new pay-per-click campaign on Microsoft adCenter to run my ads on Bing & Yahoo. However, when I was creating a new text ad, I was alarmed by this error message:
“You can’t add dynamic text to your ad until you’ve finished creating your campaign or ad group.”
So I had to delete the dynamic keyword insertion parameters in order to save and activate my campaign. As soon as I pressed Save, I went back and edited the Destination URL in my text ad to include dynamic text to capture the keyword data in my analytics software. It’s not a huge problem, just a little annoying and frankly I think it’s completely unnecessary. I mean, if you think about it, they had to actively program the software to block this functionality in order to serve this error message, which makes no sense to me whatsoever!
