Cloud sync | Platform-dependent settings
While using Dreamweaver CC, you can keep the settings synchronized between your computers by configuring the Sync Settings (Preferences > Sync Settings). Some of the settings can be synchronized between the computers irrespective of the operating system they are running on (for example, Windows to Mac OS). And, some of them can be synchronized only between similar operating systems (Windows to Windows, or Mac OS to Mac OS).
This document lists the platform-dependent and platform-independent sync settings. For more information on synchronizing dreamweaver settings between two computers, see synchronizing Dreamweaver settings with Creative Cloud.
Choose application to compare files.
Most of the other settings in Preferences are synchronized independent of the operating system. See platform-independent settings tab for details.
All site settings (except user name and password) are synchronized between computers running on the same operating system. User name and password cannot be synchronized.
The path and name of the local site folder is synchronized if a folder with the same name exists in the same path.
If a site does not exist on a machine, Dreamweaver creates a site folder in the default location. All the paths are relative to this folder. You can change this path at any point in time. For all subsequent synchronizations, only the changes in the site folder are synchronized.
Changes to keyboard shortcuts are synchronized between two computers running on the same operating system.
Changes in Workspace are synchronized between two computers running on the same operating system.
Workspaces are saved when you quit Dreamweaver and are then synchronized with the cloud. If you want to synchronize Workspace changes without exiting Dreamweaver (in the current session), click Save Current in the Workspace menu. Then, manually synchronize the settings (Preferences > Sync Settings).
The following Preferences settings are platform-independent. You can synchronize these settings from a computer running on Windows to a computer running on Mac, and the other way around.
|Preview in Browser||Preview using temporary file|
|Window sizes||Different window sizes|
Changes in File Compare (Choose application to compare files) settings are synchronized only between computers running on the same operating system.
If you are unable to use sync settings in Dreamweaver prior to CC 2015.0 version, upgrade Dreamweaver to the latest version.
