Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding and selecting multiple elements in Code view, part of Dreamweaver CC New Features.
Let's see the options for cycling through each instance…and selecting them.…If we go to the Find menu, there are five options here,…Find Next, Find Previous, Find All and Select,…Add Next Match to Selection…and Skip and Add Next Match to Selection.…Each of these options also has a keyboard shortcut…but the Mac shortcuts are quite different…from those on Windows, so I'll come back to the shortcuts,…when I discuss each operation separately.…These five options were in the original release…of Dreamweaver CC 2017,…but their implementation was rather buggy.…
Those bugs now seem to have been ironed out,…
David Powers begins with find and replace, showing how to work with the streamlined Find and Replace bar, which now works only within the current document and is designed for quick find and replace operations. He also shows how to use find and replace in multiple documents, including advanced operations on a specific tag, as well as finding and selecting multiple elements in Code view. Next, he covers PHP support, explaining that Dreamweaver now supports PHP 7.1, and showing how to set the default version of PHP in Preferences, as well as how to set the version of PHP for an individual site. He wraps up by discussing a few smaller enhancements.
- Restricting the scope of a quick search
- Finding and replacing more selectively
- Advanced find and replace in a specific tag
- Setting the default version of PHP in Preferences
- Applying a link to selected text in Live View
- Changing information displayed in the Files panel
