The October 2017 release of Dreamweaver CC now supports HiDPI on Windows, multi-monitors on Windows, and enhancements to the Git feature. 

Read on for a quick introduction to these new features and enhancements.

For a summary of features introduced in earlier releases of Dreamweaver CC, see Feature summary | earlier releases.


Support for HiDPI display in Dreamweaver (Windows)

New in the October 2017 release

Dreamweaver CC now supports HiDPI displays for Windows and is per-monitor DPI-aware. That is, the application scales as per the scaling set of the monitor.

Earlier, in 4k displays, the UI elements in Dreamweaver did not scale properly. Items like menus, fonts, icons were pixelated and appeared small and blurry. With the support for HiDPI, Dreamweaver offers improved user experience. The UI elements appear crisper, without any pixelation. Further, you do not experience issues like overflow of UI elements.

Support for multi-monitors in Dreamweaver (Windows)

New in the October 2017 release

Dreamweaver CC now offers multi-monitor support for Windows. The application automatically scales according to the resolution of the monitor.

Multi-monitor support offers several benefits. For example, you can untab a document and view the document in another monitor. By doing so, you can easily open and compare versions of a document, or two different documents.

It is also possible to view and edit different types of Dreamweaver documents in multi-monitors. For example, you can edit an HTML document in one monitor while viewing or editing a CSS document in another monitor.

Bemærk:

The credentials that you enter while adding or connecting to the remote repository are not verified.

Save credentials

Dreamweaver now allows you to save your credentials when you clone a repository. You can save your credentials when you enter your credentials in the Site Setup dialog box. You need not enter your credentials every time you perform remote Git actions such as Push, Pull.

Earlier, the Save Credentials option was available in the Add Remote and Manage Remote dialog box. Every time you had to update your credentials, you had to go to these dialog box to reenter your credentials. Now, you can directly save your credentials when you clone a repository.

Searching files in the Git panel

Dreamweaver allows you to search for files in the Git panel. As a user, when you have large number of files in your repository, you can search for files using the filename.

When you type the filename in the Search box, all the files that contain the search phrase are displayed instantly. You can also see the status of these files in the search result, helping you track your staged, modified, and untracked files.
