Really, not supported in DW8??
Wow. I was surprised to read that CSS Sculptor does not support DW8 -- only more recent versions. This is NOT emphasized on the WebAssist site -- and it certainly wasn't even mentioned when I purchased CSS Sculptor v1. In fact, the latter was released only a few months after Dreamweaver 9/CS3 was released. And although I have not used CSS Sculptor 1 a great deal, it has worked with my Dreamweaver 8 so far. If I end up having trouble -- because I won't be upgrading Dreamweaver anytime soon -- I will certainly insist upon a refund. After all, WebAssist's own HELP file for CSS Sculptor even indicates that Dreamweaver 8 is supported:
"The following locations in Dreamweaver open the CSS Sculptor Layout Manager:
* WebAssist Insert toolbar (Dreamweaver CS3 and 8)...."
And reviewers like Mr. Zeldman stated that Dreamweaver 8 was supported too:
"CSS Sculptor is compatible with Dreamweaver CS3 and Dreamweaver 8 on Windows and Macintosh. It will retail for $149.99 but is can be had for $99.99 through 6 September 2007. I don’t get anything for telling you about it except the warm glow of sharing."
So maybe CSS Sculptor 1 supports Dreamweaver 8, and not CSS Sculptor 2. I hope that is the case. If so, then people who purchased v2 should be offered a link to v1 or a refund. (And any version, I believe, can be customized and improved by altering the XML. Of course, anything output by CSS Sculptor can also be changed or improved in any way using Dreamweaver or another code editor. Personally, I've just used CSS Sculptor for a quick start then I go to Dreamweaver 8.)
Anyway, it seems to me that WebAssist needs to emphasize compatibility much more for all its products. And better backward compatibility would be nice, unless of course WebAssist is bound by a secret deal with Adobe to only support the latest versions of Dreamweaver. (I notice, for example, when graphics need to be edited, WebAssist documentation never refers to an "image editor" instead only "Fireworks" is specified. I only hope that WebAssist never inserts code with the specific intent of breaking with older versions of Dreamweaver.)
