  • 1. EW sluggish
    Hello I know this has been asked before, but what can I do to get EW to perform a little more, well, like FP. There seems to be delays after I click a button or select a menu item. TIA Mart
  • 2. I can't install Microsoft Expression; Beta won't uninstall
    I have been using Microsoft Expression Web Beta 1 for a while, and I just got the full version. I can't install it because I have the Beta on my computer. But I can't uninstall the Beta. Can anybody help?
  • 3. Uninstall caused problems with OfficeXP - Any Solution?
    I uninstalled the beta of Microsoft Expression, and then went to check email (Outlook). The windows installer popped up and started to try to install Publisher. I had to hit cancel twice to stop it. Started MS Word, same thing happened. Before the uninstall, everything was fine. I used Add Remove programs to uninstall, which did it all, with no warnings about shared files, etc. I have disabled the installer for a temporary fix, but that's not a permanent solution. I have Office XP on this computer, it's been running for a couple years with no problems. I am also hesitant to run the windows installer cleanup utility, as this is my main computer. I am using Windows XP SP2 with all patches and security updates, as does the Office XP suite (all patches and security). Anyone encounter this before? And does anyone have a solution to get rid of the installer popping up. Also...should mention that there is no virus, adware, spyware etc. on this computer. I keep it clean, and don't visit bad sites. I also should mention that even though it's disables, I see the momentary popup of the installer box when I open Office products.
  • 4. How do you keep stylesheet from being reformatted?
    I've noticed that Expression Web consistently reformats my stylesheet if I have multiple selectors defined together. For example, if I have: h1, h2, h3 {....} Expression Web will reformat these to be: h3 {...} h2 {...} h1 {...} I changed the Style Application to Manual and I think it seemed to stop reformatting, but then I found it was almost as annoying to not be able to use "bold" and "italic" commands (Ctrl-B and Ctrl-I) to make text strong or emphasized. With Style Application in Manual mode, it applies a font styling to the entire paragraph. Is it possible to have the best of both worlds -- not have my stylesheet reformatted yet be able to maintain bold/italic keyboard commands?

We just moved to a new datacenter over the weekend.  I copied all the files 
over through FTP from the old server to the new server and from the new 
server to the old server.  (I figured this way I could work twice as fast.)

Everything went smoothly, but now all my websites that I update with 
Expression Web (through its FTP program) shows conflicts.  I would not mind 
synchronizing the files if the Expression Web FTP program was not so slow, 
but unfortunately that is not the case.  And having one site that is about 
700M does not help unfortunately.

Is there a way that I can let Expression Web know these files are no longer 
in conflict or do I just slowly get Expression Web to sync all the files / 
folders at some point?

This information is stored in the files wihtin the _vti_cnf folders. If
ftp.example.net is your old site and your local website is in sync with it,
all these files should contain two lines similar to the following:

  vti_syncwith_ftp.example.net\:21:TX|08 May 2007 21:45:05 -0000
  vti_syncofs_ftp.example.net\:21:TW|08 May 2007 23:02:00 -0000

To make EW believe that your local website is also in sync with your new
site ftp.example.org, you would duplicate these lines:

  vti_syncwith_ftp.example.org\:21:TX|08 May 2007 21:45:05 -0000
  vti_syncofs_ftp.example.org\:21:TW|08 May 2007 23:02:00 -0000

In VBA, take a look at the WebDesigner.WebFile.Properties collection. Before
editing _vti_cnf files, it is essential that you backup your local website.
