I like the look of Pinegrow and how fast it is when compared to Dreamweaver. However, Im experiencing odd behavior or rather strange ways to edit, create functionalities to create the perfect replacement.
Here are some of my top requests:
- Allow the creation of HTML Snippets and Saving in the Library by highlighting the code in the code editor and right clicking to get a contextual menu to save out snippet to library with “untitled” highlighted name of the snippet and rename on the fly when saving the entry.
1 a. Byspass your “global” snippet save entry to the library without the needing to save it again which is a useless step. This is where dreamweaver shines.
Allow the snippets to be clicked on when in the code editor to fill in the snippet code bypassing “dom” tree insertion, since Im aware where exactly I need to place the code snippet within the code structure right within the code editor.
Removing code from the code editor is a bit sluggish and at times gives me an odd error with this weird message “Can’t select element at runtime”?
Saving/Preserving the Workspace when exiting the app and opening it.
The parent classes are not being highlighted when clicking on the WYSYWIG editor and seen in the code editor, where as in dreamweaver it works properly.
Im on MacOS Monterey.
