DW CS 6 crashes

When I try to select a redirect page, DW crashes.

This problem exits already for more than a week an there is still no update available.

I can't use any WA function that requires selecting a page from file select window.

So I can't use the software. I can't even implement a login page.

Got to go back to ADDT. 5 years old software with no bugs ...

DW CS6 / Mac 10.6.8

Good luck with ADDT and CS6! You'll need it!

Development stopped a good while ago and the latest supported version of Dreamweaver is CS4. It also does not support the latest release of PHP without some major hacks so you'll be building websites that will be defunct as soon as they are written.

Jason has already stated that they are working on the fix for us Mac users and a new version will be available soon.

I know that ADDT is only working on CS4 and development has been stopped...

But what shall I do when I buy a software that's not running and the customer is waiting?

Correct I go back to the old software and create a mixture of WA and ADDT and therefore CS4 and CS6 together.

In my mind, I think that you need to review your upgrade strategy in future. I simply cannot understand anyone that upgrades the moment that Adobe announce a new version, especially if they rely on extensions that they purchased to work with a previous version. I certainly would not upgrade mid-project with a customer waiting!

I've got CS6 on a test machine, but not a cats chance in hell I would risk my business by putting it on my main machine for another six months when the storm clouds settle.

By all means go back to CS4 and use your either your WA extensions or ADDT but I don't understand going back to a platform (ADDT) that doesn't work properly in recent versions of PHP.

Just my thoughts like!

Only 6 months? I usually wait until just before they bring out the next version.

Yes, when I say six months that is usually the time that I consider it to be much less of a risk in terms of things not working as they should do.

From what I've seen of CS6, apart from the fluid layouts its a little underwhelming anyway and there still seem to be issues with focus on the properties window on the Mac like there have been since CS4.

I think Adobes attention to fixing issues is poor and all they are interested in is repacking the same old under a new product version with a couple of extra features.
