View Full Version : Opening file ?

12-02-2005, 02:37 PM
I have a question on the status of files when I open them. Sometimes when I first open files from my computer into dreamweaver they have an asterik next to them initially. This is without making any changes to them. Some files do this others do not. The files that are doing this are importing CSS sheets. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it or not.

Why would these files open like this without changing any code in them. I'm wondering if this is normal or some type of problem.

The last site that I built with imported CSS files did this. I seem to have a weird problem with some of the pages in this site. Some of the text/backgrounds will not show unless the user scrolls down and then back up. It will appear as normal after that part of the page moves under the browser menu bar. This only happens on the initial page load. in a browser when visiting the site.

there could be a prblem with sync-ing the files. DW does a comparison against remote and local files, if there is a difference it assumes you have added code and prompts for a save. If you are sure you havnt added or changed code then your safe to save. Even if you add a space in the code or a return then it will asterix the file
