CSS MW does not work in Mac-Snow Leopard

You know that CSS Menuwriter does not work at all in Snow Leopard? when can I expect to update?

I am using Snow Leopard and have been able to get CSS Menu Writer to work fine - except for one case - when editing menus that I had created before my Snow Leopard upgrade, I have to edit them manually rather than with the extension dialogue box.

You may have a different issue, altogether.

Cheers,

Brian

In regards to the issues you are having using CSS Menu Writer in Snow Leopard what exactly are you experiencing? This is a supported environment for this tool and has been tested to ensure it works. I'm not aware of any current issues that may be associated with the OS update. Please post back and include any errors you are getting and describe what steps you are taking to make use of the tool.

CSS Menu Writer does not work in Mac Snow-Leopard

I have problems using CSS menu writer as well. I just downloaded and installed the CSS Menu Writer extension today! When I try to use it, I get the following error message: 'while executing OnLoad in wamw_addmenu.htm, a JavaScript error occured', and the application freezes. I went through all the cleaning procedure recommended by Webassist (deleting the MacFileCache, starting with a new 'configuration' folder, uninstall and re-install all extensions...) and still get the very same error.

Not sure this is related to Snow Leopard, but this is the only thing I can think about. I'm using many other WebAssist extensions and they are working fine. I'm using CSS Menu writer with Dreamweaver 8 and OSX 10.6.1 on a MacBook Pro Intel.

I'd appreciate any help!
Thanks!

There has just been a recent update for CSS Menu Writer v2 that has been released, it is 2.0.3. Is this the version you are using and getting the error with? If you are not using this latest release please login to WebAssist.com and visit the download area to obtain the latest release. When you install it make sure to completely uninstall the previous version before installing the newest version to ensure that no conflicts occur.

If you continue to have this issue please let us know so we can investigate it further.

pb with CSS Menu Writer

I'm using the latest 2.0.3 update. The JavaScript errors occurs as soon as I click on the 'Insert > CSS Menu Writer...' menu. I did not even get a chance to go through the registration!

This sounds like an issue that may be resolved by deleting the cache file in the configuration area. Please give this a try to see if it helps to clear up the problems you are having. Here is a link to a page that lists the steps to delete this file.

There are also steps for deleting the config folder but you should only do this if the first thing does not work for you. Please post back and let us know if this resolves the issue for you or if it persists.

Snow Leopard and Extension Manager

I've been going round and round with Adobe's support about the fact that I get an incompatible file message when I try to install any WebAssist product except Sculpture 3 and Site Assist.

They finally came clean and said that Extension Manager and Dreamweaver are not fully compatible with Snow Leopard (something I knew) and they have no solution.

I have asked them when DW CS4 will be updated to support Mac OS 10.6 and have not received an answer (didn't expect one). Now I am stuck because I really want to use MenuWriter and other WebAssist products to speed prototyping and DW + EM 2.1 won't install the extensions.

Do you have the latest dot releases for all the extensions?

WebAssist did make some changes to several extensions recently to improve issues with installing on Macs.

I have been able to install all of the extensions on Snow Leopard with no problem at all. A lot of the issues is because of the cache file that Adobe uses. See this to remove it: 146/

The Adobe suite is compatible with Snow Leopard or 10.6 - it just doesn't maximize the full potential of the OS as the apps were 32 bit Carbon based whereas the new CS5 will be 64 bit Cocoa-based... but they are compatible. I can assure that I have the entire Adobe suite working fine on 10.6.

Cheers,

Brian
