We’re thrilled to announce the #DreamweaverInAction series. Many of our customers have shared their great work and stories, so we decided to pass it along to the community.
The primary aim of this series is to show off our customers’ exciting work, inspire further creativity by sharing ideas and cultivate a discussion about the modern Dreamweaver. It will also help our featured customers get exposure through Adobe’s social channels and website.
We kicked off the series by showing off the creative work of AltaSartoria web design agency. Claudio Caciagli, lead designer and developer, has just launched this stunning responsive website http://altasartoria.com
We followed that up with an inspiring example by designer Jordan Flower, who used Dreamweaver and WordPress to create a business at Keys Apparel that supports victims of human trafficking.

When the first version of Dreamweaver launched, the web had only begun to emerge as a viable platform, and its capabilities were a fraction of what they are today. Since then, the web platform has changed dramatically, and continues to evolve at a rapid pace.
Designing for an evolving platform means that the tools one uses must also evolve. To best serve our customers, we are modernizing Dreamweaver to provide an all-in-one visual tooling environment for creating websites and mobile content. To do so we are streamlining the user interface, introducing new ways to tackle key areas of the web design process, and removing support for technologies that are not widely used by our customers.
Our first task has been to streamline the User Interface, which we have begun by consolidating several workflows (such as font management) and simplifying parts of the application (such as the Document Tool Bar and the Insert Panel). In addition, we have begun to identify and remove parts of the application that are redundant. We have already removed 10 panels, 14 dialog boxes, and 62 menu items. A simpler UI means fewer steps to accomplish your tasks, and fewer interruptions to your workflow.
The modernization efforts also include the introduction of the new CSS Designer panel in Dreamweaver CC. In future updates to Dreamweaver we intend to improve the HTML & CSS preview/inspect/edit workflow, streamline file and site management, enhance our support for responsive web design, as well as continue to focus on improving performance and responding to customer feedback. Dreamweaver will also continue to receive regular updates that expose the evolving capabilities of the web and further integrate tools and services that improve productivity.
As we remove older features from Dreamweaver, we recognize that some customers may still depend on existing workflows/technologies. Therefore, in addition to making Dreamweaver CS6 available through Creative Cloud, we are also providing some alternatives. The table below covers some of the features we have removed, and the list of the extensions or workarounds that will enable affected customers to continue using Dreamweaver CC as part of their existing workflows.

While Adobe has tested the extensions listed above with Dreamweaver CC, we do not provide support for functionality provided through extensions.
In addition to the extensions we’ve provided, we are particularly excited about two new extensions for Dreamweaver developed by DMXzone. They provide modernized replacements for two Spry workflows featured in previous versions of Dreamweaver. More information is available at:
We have just begun the modernization process and invite you to voice your opinion. We are committed to taking action on customer feedback and remaining as transparent as possible about our future plans.
Product Marketing Manager
We are pleased to announce the release of a modernized and streamlined Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver CC is the all-in-one visual tool to efficiently and intuitively create, publish and manage websites and mobile content.
New in Dreamweaver CC:
Create immersive web experiences with the new CSS Designer and visually apply CSS properties such as gradients, box shadows, and more. Dreamweaver CC is committed to producing clean, web-standards code, enabling you to design without the need to hand-code.
Dreamweaver CC also includes enhancements to its responsive design framework, Fluid Grid Layouts. We’ve addressed key usability issues to improve the design workflow, and to help you visually construct and build responsive websites that render properly on multiple screen sizes and devices.
By removing under-utilized features in Dreamweaver, we are clearing the way to provide optimized workflows for the latest and most relevant front-end web technologies and standards. Over time we plan to evolve the Dreamweaver feature set to include relevant middle-layer and server side technologies as well. Our aim is to provide the ultimate user experience – a collection of productive and modern visual development features in a single tooling environment.
We have just begun the modernization process and invite you to voice your opinion. We are committed to taking action on customer feedback and remaining as transparent as possible about our future plans. More details will follow on what the modernization effort entails in Dreamweaver CC, and we eagerly await your feedback.
Over the past 12 months, we have been expanded Dreamweaver’s integration with many Creative Cloud services and tools. One of the many benefits to being part of the Creative Cloud is that you can access the vast and ever-growing Adobe Edge Web Fonts library. Also, with web technologies evolving rapidly, Dreamweaver CC helps you keep up by implementing features and addressing issues quickly. Creative Cloud members will receive regular updates to Dreamweaver.
Another benefit of integration with Creative Cloud is Sync: Dreamweaver CC lets you sync both site settings and preferences, streamlining your creation workflow. Sync in seconds and start creating without the need to recreate or manually copy and paste files. With Dreamweaver CC & Creative Cloud, the creative world is at your fingertips.
