What do you wish Dreamweaver would do? I’ll bet you have a pet peeve or a longed-for feature.
I’d like to see Dreamweaver do some new things. Or maybe, do some old things differently.
- I’d like to see proper icons in the Property Inspector for bold, italic, strong, and em. Bold and italic may make a comeback in HTML5, which is going to be even more confusing to users who don’t know all the facts about semantic markup. And while they’re at it, could they add a button for cite?
- I’d like to see a pull down list of ARIA roles that could be applied to elements. Maybe in the Property Inspector or maybe in a menu under Accessibility.
- If a user changes the ID of a form field with the Property Inspector, I’d like to see the “for” attribute for the label change to match.
- I wish there was a way to add scope=col or scope=row to table header (th) cells through the WYSIWYG menus. Why couldn’t it be added to the Header section of the Table Dialog? A checkbox labeled “Include scope attribute” would do the trick.
