Layer disappears when pasting text



  • 1. HHow do I Track my images Trace who has stolen my Images and puts them on there web site and claims that they have done
    Hi, I always put a copyright with my name on it on all of my images. You can do this pretty easily in any image editing program. I use Photoshop and Fireworks. Of course they can edit it out--but that's quite a hassle, Copyright on the image or not, it's illegal to take an image from a photographer and reproduce it. If you can prove this--especially since you say that they've claimed to have done it, you can take legal action. You say you know how to watermark, why haven't you done this??? I'm a pro photographer, and in real life, even though I put the copyright on all of my products, even the best of customers will sometimes copy. But no matter where, how or when it's done it is against the law.
  • 2. manage sites hangs and closes program

  • 3. DW8 templates won't display in Live View
    I have several sites that I've developed around templates distributed with Dreamweaver 8. When I access these with Dreamweaver CS4, everything works well in code and design view, but java script and images don't seem to display correctly in Live View. Live View seems to work fine with newly created pages in DW CS4, but my existing sites will not display. Anybody run into this? DW CS4 on a iMac (2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) running under 10.5.5.
  • 4. Resizing Background Image
    I did some google searching...but, I am seeking the ability to have my background image resize to the visitor's browser...not tile, but rezise...I see some older google articles on javascript and CSS3...but, I see flash sites do it enough and believe I have see DW sites do it....For my tastes, javascript is ok but CSS is preferred. TIA.

Layer disappears when pasting text

Postby clearsight1 » Fri, 28 Jul 2006 12:02:49 GMT

When I paste text that I copied from Word into a DW layer it looks great. When 
I save the page and 
 reopen it the layer is gone and the text is reformatted. What's interesting is 
the layer does not show 
 up in the layers pallet but I still see mention of it in the code.
 How do I get the layer to stay?

Show me the page before you paste the copy into it, please.

1.Text disappears when editing a layer in Dreamweaver 8

I have had a problem for a long time now with text disappearing while I'm 
editing it in a layer.  If I scroll up to the top of the page and down again 
(sometimes a couple of times), the text will reappear, but this is cumbersome 
(and rather annoying).  Does anyone else have this problem?  Is it something 
I'm doing incorrectly?  Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

2.Dynamic text disappears under mask layer

In Flash 8, I created a mask layer that made certain areas of dynamic text 
visible. However, in CS3 when I try to do this, the dynamic text disappears 
altogether. I created a new file to see if it was something I was doing or if 
every time I mask layer appears over top of dynamic text it disappears. Turns 
out it's the latter. Any idea how to work around this or why a mask would make 
dynamic/input text disappear but not static?

3.Layers disappearing from layer palette

Named layers that have been appearing in the layer palette have now disappeared 
from the palette although the layers are still appearning on the page.  I am 
working on a template if that makes any difference in Dreamweaver 8.

4.Cut/Pasting Text from one layer/class to another

Sometimes cutting and pasting text from one box to another works just as one 
would expect.

 Other times the PASTE command results not in the placement of the text where 
the cursor is, but in a whole new box created for the text on the fly way off 
to the side.  It registers on the Layers panel as a new layer contained within 
the target box.

 How counter-intuitive.

 Is there a way to transfer text across layers reliably?


5.pasted HTML text disappears

Thanks Jean_Guy

That was the first thing I thought too, but the font is black on a white 
To double check, I tried to pasted it into a .doc and it pasted fine.

However, in EXCEL, I have to double click the mouse to get the text to 

I just noiticed that when I do that, most of the options, on the standard 
options toolbar, selected from the "View," go gray.
Opening "View," on the Menu, when the only choice that isn't gray is 

For the cell that keeps hiding, at the input box at the top of the page, 
where a "=" is entered to indicate the cell contains a formula is active and 
shows, an X, a check mark, and the = sign.

However, for the cells that show text, that area is gray and empty. When I 
select one of those cells, all the options that gray out when the "blank" row 
that contains a header and has to be double clicked to get it to show, return.

So, we are still unsolved on this problem.   Oh, I also checked to see if 
anyting was hidden and it wasn't.  

More help is needed to figure out how to simply paste the headers in a cell, 
without having them disappear unless I double click the cell and keep the 
curson in it.

Thanks, Bob
