Trying to edit a design

I have created my own design, and due to the unstable nature of CSS Sculptor, I have decided to save a version part way through it's creation. Now I am trying to go back into the design and edit it further, and when I try to add a new div to the footer section, I find that the naming conventions that I have used are being replaced.

I have #fwrap #ftr and I am trying to add #ftrl and #ftrr so I end up with CSS of:

#fwrap #ftr #ftrl and
#fwrap #ftr #ftrr

But what I am getting when I try to add a child div is this:

#div2 #ftr #div

Any setting I had applied and saved as a preset for #fwrap are eradicated by the unexpected renaming of it! Also, if I try to then select #div and change it's name and apply settings, the settings seem to affect a totally different div, even though it shows as selected!

This happens all the time, and although I have just got on with life and worked around it by ending up hand coding the remaining parts of CSS required, it's frustrating to have to find out that you've gone and done an hour or more of work only to have to cancel because you risk ruining any previous stable CSS created.

Any ideas on how I can stop this happening?

I hav had similar issues in the past, but have found a way to work around them with the work arounds being consistent.

For one, when I add a div it doesntnalways land where expected. The workaround is to create it as close to where I want it to be, then outdent it or move it up or down.

I've also noticed that the div that appears to be the one selected, really isn't and that's why changing the name or other properties affect a different div. I've noticed that I sometime have to click twice to actually select that div. The first click highlights it, bit in a lighter color. The second click highlights it in the dark blue.

After making the change I have noticed it won't keep if I click apply or move on to another tab. I first have to click to another div for the new name to show up in the tree, then back to the new div, again sometimes having to click twice on each one. If everything hold, then I know it's taken and I can move on.

Also, and in other extensions, the first click of androp down menu selects the first option. I have to select a second time.

Some of these things happen in Dreamweaver dialogs too, not just web assist extensions. For example, if you change the name of a text field without clicking out of it, or pressing enter, the new won't keep. Maybe there's amconnection there.

what version of CSS Sculptor are you using?

This should be corrected in CSS Sculptor version 3.0.2.

If you have a previous version installed, make sure to uninstall it from the extension manager before installing the newer version.
