Finding the list of files Dreamweaver will reopen on startup

As sometimes happens, a network share ended up going down while I was using Dreamweaver. Unfortunately, this can cause fairly major issues with Dreamweaver, if you have files still open, or if you have Dreamweaver closed, but need to open it up. Since I typically have more than one file open in Dreamweaver, and have set my preferences to remember what I've got open, I wanted to know where Dreamweaver stored the files that it was going to re-open.

Keyboard shortcuts for Visual Studio that mimic Dreamweaver

I like Dreamweaver. After Notepad, and various other apps like it, I used FrontPage, was scarred, and was saved by Dreamweaver. However, Dreamweaver can't handle .NET files very well. So when I moved to Windows and started using BlogEngine.NET I naturally started looking at how I could edit the source files. Visual Web Developer 2005 had been released, so ...

The Subversion aspect has been updated for Windows Vista. So too has the TortoiseSVN installation. The Dreamweaver aspect has not been touched. I also have an article about using Subversion.  When projects become large, or you have the need to keep information on what files you’ve modified, for any coding project, you may look for some kind of version control system. There’s software like Microsoft’s SourceSafe, but that can be costly, and according to some, it’s a clunky solution.

Dreamweaver 8 as a MXML IDE?

  • September 7, 2006
  • James Skemp
I've spent the last couple of hours trying to get Dreamweaver 8 to begin to function as a MXML IDE. Unfortunately, while I can get every <mx: tag added to the code hints, I'm having a heck of a time getting the actual code hints to function. The small tutorial that Macromedia (and truly it was Macromedia at the time) provided isn't very helpful at all. CodeSnipers.com (link below) has some information on using Dreamweaver 8 a Ruby IDE, but since Ruby appears to be so function based .
