Rewrite code on click in DW.. Anyone else

Rewrite code on click in DW.. Anyone else

I know Ray is dealing with some serious things so this question is to anyone else using DW on a Mac.

If I do anything regarding WA extensions ( I mainly use iSQL behaviours ) DW will rewrite the code on the page making it useless.
Check the attached video for an example.

Also here are the top couple lines from the example page :
The screen shot shows missing initial characters but the cut n paste shown below illustrates the code is still properly preserved. BUT, if I save, it saves the messed up code in the screen shot.


ini_set('display_errors', 1);
ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1);
<?php require_once('webassist/framework/framework.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('webassist/framework/library.php'); ?

This is the same case on multiple versions of DW (2019 and 2021).
My computer is a new M2 MacBookPro

Basically, this removes the ability to use these extensions.

Again, I know Ray is predisposed with more pressing issues so I'm wondering if anyone else is having similar problems?
