Possible bug when editing an existing form

Possible bug when editing an existing form

This may be a bug...

I have found that when editing an existing form using "Edit Design" and then trying to overwrite my preset that I had previously saved, it causes Dreamweaver CS 4 to crash. This is on Mac (latest generation of MacBook Pro). I went back in and tried to just update the current form without resaving the preset and it also causes the crash during the time when the "processing" dialogue box appears in the left hand side.

I can provide error log file and system configuration files if needed.

Best regards,

Dreamweaver CS4 crashing

I get the same type of crash when I edit a form that is created in FormBuilder. Doesn't happen right away for me however. It is usually the second edit that causes DW CS4 to freeze up. The reason I keep editing is due to Formbuilder not creating the forms right. It appears that any time I change the default form width, FB screws up when it is displayed in the final page. If I create a standard form on a totally blank looks good, but when I change just one thing, the form width, it goes bonkers and a 100% setting just sucks. Going back to hand coding forms. :(

The only trick with changing widths is that you need to make sure to adjust your column widths and form element widths so that they fit inside the form you have shrunk.

Once you get the settings correct you can save as a preset and use it again.

You can always hand edit the forms once created as well, don't forget you are using DW and it has the ability to manipulate CSS on completed pages. Editing by hand after the form builder is completed is a perfectly viable option.
