New CSS rule Dreamweaver

New CSS rule Dreamweaver

I am using Dreamweaver CS4 and find that after writing a couple or so of rules, the 'Rule Definition' drop-down in the CSS rule dialogue box offers only two choices -
This document only or
New Stylesheet.

As you will appreciate, when using WA extensions, there may be quite a few CSS style sheets as well as what I have initiated, but it reverts to the above an immense amount of the time. The only way I can then pick up the stylesheet I require, is to close Dreamweaver and start over.

I've looked in the Edit - Preferences and cannot find anything in there to help.

Has anyone any help to offer?

I've been using Dreamweaver for years and haven't come across this problem!

TIA

You can try resetting your workspace. You can do this by going to Window->Workspace Layout->Reset '<current_workspace_name>' in Dreamweaver.

Also maybe check your css rule names or css file names to make sure those aren't causing an issue.

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for this, I'll give it a go. This is happening on two separate computers and on various sites within the programme.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the css rule or filenames causing the issue. Could you ventilate a little more?

I wonder if anyone else has come across this malady. Maybe not as I suspect I may have received a reply before now.

I was unable to reproduce the issue on my end, so I'm not sure what is causing this for you. Checking the css file name or rule name was just a suggestion to make sure that it was not a file name or rule name that Dreamweaver didn't like causing the file names to be removed from the dropdown.

Thanks once again. I'll report back if this cures the problem. (Or not!)
