View Full Version : HELP!! Cannot Enter/Delete Code In Code View! DW Just Quits!

03-10-2010, 03:50 PM

When I try to enter/delete any code in DW CS4, I get the spinning rainbow, and DW quits on me! I can't even do Edit>Cut.

I can start a new file, and enter/delete while in Design View, but I can't in Code View! As again, DW quits.

I tried restarting the computer, nothing changed. Tried repairing disk permissions, nada.

I opened a new file in PS (just to check another program), and was able to enter/delete text. Also tried in Word, and it worked there as well.

I've never had this problem before.

Anyone have any idea what the heck is going on?

Thank you.

Anyone have a suggestion on where I might be able to find a solution? Because I've not found anything on the net about this.

Hard to say. Do you get an error message? Are you Mac or PC?

Some tips on this page might help and rebuilding the preferences is always a good idea.

Got it worked out.

Friend of mine suggested holding down the shift key while restarting DW, and it worked.

Thank you.
