I am trying very hard to use Dreamweaver CS3 – the Missing Manual and quite honestly I am finding this a nightmare. I have used DW for years and was most impressed by the reviews for the book but even the simplest things do not work. Clicking from one object to another i.e. heading to subheading, does not change the property inspector. I have to repeatedly save the prvious work after EVERY action to make the next action work. Select text for bulleting and hitting the bullet icon – I have been two hours on one page here, either put a bullet on one para or all in the document. Putting a CSS header on one line (which is a header) puts it on an entire paragraph later in the document. It’s bananas. Is it the book or the software that is crap? Is it me? I have been in IT for 30 years and used tools like this for years but with CS3 even the basics do not work.
And, why is your reporting problems page so horribly complex?
