Would be nice if the mouse-over object moved with the object. I had an html object which overlapped a button (with mouse-over); moved the button way out of the way and still received an error. Had to delete the button and try again.
Ability to select objects with keyboard or some menu. For example, say you want to select some object which is behind another. Maybe Tab/ Shift Tab to select next/previous object? Would be great for the previous suggestion (select the mouse-over object so you can move/re-size it).
Ability to copy/insert a page from another website.
Ability to have multi-language pages. Kind of hard one; you would be able to have text in a text box pulled from another file, depending on a variable which could be set via a button.
Spell checker (how many times have you heard that one?)
I'd like to see a feature to refresh only one page, or certain pages of the website. I often have time-sensitive data that needs to be uploaded within a day. Publishing the page gets delayed if I'm working on another page that is already on my website but in the midst of changes. Is there currently a way for me to publish or change one page without having to reload the entire site?
Do you think that web sites are only created in US/English language?
I'm using VSD from the very beginning, and I jumped over versions 6.x because it brought more problems than advantages. Now, I'm checking V7 very carefully: whenever I would upgrade, it's very important that a FULL compatibility with my 5.9 web sites is proven.
Actually it's not bad at all. I deplore only that the HTML character set localization is automatically set to UTF-8. (It's in the <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8"> statement generated by VSD). I tried to add a similar statement in the page header object:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1">
but it doesn't work.
When I edit the HTML generated code and replace the utf-8 with ISO-8859-1 than my pages will look fine!
(My pages are almost always using embedded HTML objects with tables and other stuff written with European languages accentuated characters like é, ü, ì etc.)
I think it will be a very good thing if a character set drop down box (defaulted to UTF-8 for compatibility purposes) could be available in the page properties.
Thanks to consider other languages than English in your software!
Only the letters of the English alphabet are represented as normal letters.
This was with doctype html 4.01 and charset utf-8
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
