Wizard Screen goes blank after multiple changes

This is my fist attempt to use CSS Menu writer for a long time due to a bug that caused the wizard screen to go blank after multiple changes to the theme in past versions. Looks like the problem still exists in V2.0.5.

Here's the steps I use to create the bug every time.

Create a 2 tier SQL menu
Go and create a custom theme.
Change Box, Type and Design, Change line widths to none
Return to Box Tab and bang blank screen.

I have deleted Dreamweaver CS5 cache after install
Tried creating a new CSS Menu and removed all directories from previous attempts.
Nothing i do works, It's OK as long as i don't try and change every aspect of the menu under the the options. Also once the screen goes blank the buttons to save stop working

Screen dump attached of blank Wizard

P.S: Also if I have a top menu box height of 55 with a gradient background how do i get the text to align horizontal Centre and Verticle Centre, None of the Block properties seem to change the final layour. At present only option is to centre text but it remains at the top of the box.

I haven't been able to replicate the error on my machine. Which changes did you make to each of the selections so I know how to reproduce it? Does the error occur if you don't switch back to the box tab or if you switch to the type tab instead?

To get the menu items centered, you would go to the type tab and change the align to center.

Hi Jimmy,

When I asked regarding centre I mean horizontal and verticle centres not just centre text align. My menu top row is 56 pixels in height and I was trying to centre the text vertically as well as centre aligned.

OK to reporiduce the error.

Define a new theme using dynamic values for the content Menu and sub-menus, nested using our local testing server on the LAN.

Changed Padding for top tier to 15 (All)
Changed Padding for tier 2 & 3 to 8 (All)
Changed Hover, Active, Visited and Link Colours to custom values
Added custom 3kb gif images for Link, Rollover for top tier
Clicked Apply between every change.
Removed Borders for each tier and when i click Apply blank screen.

All buttons are then non operational. I have gone back to manually writing the CSS menus for now but would like to know why this features won't work. It would surely save alot of time.

To vertically center the text, you will have to go to the box tab, select the main level, and go to the Item tab under Dimension, Margin & padding and use the padding to affect where the text is.

As for the disappearing error, I'm still unable to reproduce this error. What operating system and version of Dreamweaver are you running?

Hi Jimmy,

Dreamweaver V.11 Build 4913 (Current)
O/S Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Intel Core i7 920
8GB Ram
Video NVidia GeForce GTX 275

I can replicate using remote Sql server or even local XAMPP test server here.

I've gone back to hand coding so don't waste your time, I've had this problem with every version of CCS Menu on 3 different PC's now. It seems it always happens when too much editing is done with the wizard. Much quicker for me to manually code than go through this every time.
