Menu headings not appearing

I just built a new site using site Assist Professional in DW6. All is well except the menu titles are blank unless I switch to Live View. The message is: This page has server processing Directives that Design View cannot display.

Any idea on how to fix this?

I know you are switching to Surveyor but in my opinion Site Builder does a much better job of creating new sites. You should have included Site Assist Professional in Design Extender instead of or in addition to Surveyor. SAP gives you a choice of pre-built design color themes. In Surveyor you have to use Theme-it to get the same. If one is color blind the choice is Site Assist Professional. I can find no way to the the Nautica color theme into Surveyor.

Site Assist Professional is not compatible with DW CS6.

Surveyor is not a site creation tool, nor is it included in Design Extender, the site creation tool in design Extender is Site Sculptor.

In Site Sculptor, you can use your own custom template to create a site design.

You could use CSS Sculptor to create your design using the Nautica Color Scheme, then create a custom Site Design using the preset manager.

See the "Creating a custom template for Site Sculptor" tutorial on the Site Sculptor support page for more details.

Sorry I meant Sculptor, I assume you knew that.

I tried, I really tried, and I'm not dumb, contrary to the way your products make me feel. I did try to create my design, in the Nautical color style that the customer wanted. As you suggested it I used CSS sculptor to create a page design. It took me several tries before I think I finally got it to work, I think. But then I tried to create my site, boy what a mess that was. I kept trying and deleting everything and starting over. Defining the menu structure kept crashing just as I was about to finish. I finally figured out that you have to click finish to save what you have when you are part way through the set up then go back and complete the rest. It took me 4 attempts to figure that out. But when I tried to set up the site using the design I created with CSS sculptor it refused and simply created the site in the ugly looking color scheme that is the default. I decided to stay with that and just try to change the colors but you can't preview and of the pages because as soon as you try to look at them it brings up the wizard and requires you to upload them. What a complete mess this program is.

I have no idea why you decided to kill the only program you have to create sites that actually works. It's easy to use, fairly intuitive and allows me to work on and edit pages without requiring I first upload them and run a wizard. With Site Builder I could output several design styles and color schemes to the browser and click through them to let my customer pick the style and color scheme they liked best. I can't do that any more with Sculptor. And I hate the idea that I now have to upload the pages and run the wizard before I can do basic design editing to them. I wasted two days trying to make this work and now I have to go and recode this whole site by hand.

You ask for ratings on the Dreamweaver site. Don't let me anywhere near that right now. I need a week to cool off first.
