Customizing Code Colors with Dreamweaver CC 2017.0.1
by Suhas Yogin
posted on 12-19-2016
Six weeks after we released the modern Dreamweaver, we’re back with another update. While the focus of this update is stability, we’ve also built a workflow for customizing code colors, based on feedback from you. Now, with Dreamweaver CC 2017.0.1, you can do the following:
- Create Code Themes, based on default Dark and Light themes
- Edit existing code themes
With the new coding engine, code themes are determined by LESS files, packaged along with Dreamweaver. If you are not familiar to coding LESS files, not a problem. Download the Token Inspector, that lets you visually identify CSS selectors associated with distinct parts of your code. Thereby, modifying colors associated with these selectors, will help you customize code colors and hence the themes, themselves. Do follow instructions on this Help page when you’re customizing code themes.
Some of the other issues addressed in this update are:
- [Mac only]: Clicking on OK button in “Configure RDS Server” dialog was not saving RDS settings
- ID and class code hints are not displayed on typing . or # in related CSS files.
- In Korean and Japanese locales, compound characters disappear while typing and clicking outside current IP position or pressing Spacebar.
- On clicking the Replace All button in the Find and Replace dialog, Dreamweaver does not replace all matching instances in template files
For a full list of all issues fixed in this update, please see Known Issues page.
Download this important update to ensure you’re taking full advantage of not just the custom code color capabilities, but also all of the critical stability-related fixes.
