No wysiwyg editing?
Seriously, I hope I am just doing something wrong, but I don't need a program to help me right html/css and view it in a browser. I can do that without coffecup.
So, purchased, installed, no wysiwyg editing in the preview panel. Please, I either need my money back or I need to be corrected on this and shown how to do wysiwyg editing.
We feel strongly about using the instant preview options when dealing with code. The split-screen preview shows changes on-screen as you make them, and the external preview can be open at all times in a different window (which is great if you use a second monitor). Try them! We're confident that you'll find these preview options just as useful as working with the visual editor.
If you would like to continue using the HTML Editor with the visual editing component, contact support with your order number and we can send you that version. Just note that this feature is no longer supported nor being developed.
Other than that, CoffeeCup gives you a full 30 day trial period of most of their software and there would have been no guess work needed if you had done that first. I have no clue why people don't take advantage of that, it's there especially for things like this.
Also do keep in mind if you do go for the old version that Scott mentioned that has the visual editor in it, it's not a very stable thing to use, and it's not going to have any of the new preview window features at all either. Quite a few features actually that were added to it since then won't be there. Just letting you know that ahead of time too.
If it's a visual editor you're after, you should have gone for the one that is named for it:
Visual Site Designer
That's the one CoffeeCup makes for that purpose and has for many years now.
Smoke the HTML editor has always had the split preview, as far as I remember, that's when it's working
I'll bite the bullet and keep this program but could you suggest another that will suit my purposes better? BTW, this is why I went to other programs back in 1999.
Have you tried Responsive Layout Maker or had a look at the Responsive Site Designer forum?
The only other option I can think of is to fork out the bucks for Dreamweaver and then you have the best of both worlds. Just remember that it's not cheap and there's no "buying" of the Adobe software anymore so basically you're only paying rent with no return on your money other than the work you get done while you're using it. Double edged sword there, but it's an option if you can't wait.
I would wait if I were you though, I think it's going to fit what you need pretty good and you should keep your eyes open for sales because the big sale is already past, you missed that one. It's only in pre-release stage at the moment so it's not available to purchase outright yet unless you had RLMP already. I'm sure they will have other sales though as they get closer to release, so be sure you're on the mailing list to know what's coming.
