Why I Love Dreamweaver

Adobe has made it very easy to insert web content into your Captivate projects. This allows you as an eLearning developer to get past any limitations within Captivate. However, creating native HTML5 content can be a daunting task. I’ve used a variety of web development tools over the years but I keep coming back to Dreamweaver. This video shows 5 (plus a bonus ) reason why I like using Dreamweaver.

Not official yet, but many indicators of a slow death. Same what happened with Muse, Fireworks and the Edge family. I still regret the death of Edge Animate and Fireworks. Animate is a bridge too far for simple animations and its UI has never appealed to me.

We’ll see… I didn’t breach any NDA but cannot point you to official links. Just a warning.  So much happens in such a big company. They now took out several Font families which were popular with designers out of the Adobe fonts as well.

If they do kill Dreamweaver, what tool will take it’s place? Adobe had a product called GoLive but Dreamweaver replaced it when Adobe bought out Macromedia. I’ll keep using Dreamweaver until they it finally is gone. Mind you, just because it comes to an EOF, doesn’t mean it stops working. I’ll keep using it until something much better comes along.

Thanks for your thoughts Lieve.

Agree.. have used GoLive as well. And I still have Edge Animate on one system installed as well. Lost Fireworks which I regret.

Hmmm, Phil. I am under the impression that Dreamweaver is EOL . Are you aware of that?

That is news to me. I did not hear that Dreamweaver is at its End of Life. I looked at several sources and couldn’t find anything. Here is a list on the Adobe site with products that are no longer supported. https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/x-productkb/policy-pricing/discontinued-products.html

I also looked at a few outside sources and I couldn’t find anything. Can you send me a link with news about Dreamweaver reaching its EOL?

Thanks Lieve.

Cheers

Dreamweaver is great but as pages get more complex, systems that generate those pages are more prevalent. Nonetheless, there is always the need for customizing those pages that come from the advanced systems and maybe Dreamweaver can help on that. However, I have found Notepad++ to do a great job when the changes are small.
