dreamweaver file editing anomaly

  kabe 17:44 10 Apr 2008

I have upgraded from DW3 to DW CS3.

I have chosen 'edit files on local machine' as an option for the site I have transferred to DW CS3.

However the behaviour of CS3 is not the same as DW3.

CS3 insists on logging on to the server when I try and edit a local file, then when I try to open a file on the local machine, I am asked
1. Do you want to overwrite local files
2.Do you want to download dependant files,

It then seems as if CS3 retrieves the remote file, and NOT my local file.
Am I missing something here?
This is quite frustrating, since it is unclear which file I am given to edit.
Anyone else had this confusion?

I have solved this problem
The editing option to select is the 2nd one, not the first.
> 1.Edit local copies on my machine, then upload when ready.
> 2.Edit directly on server using local network

AND do not have check in/out active.(only suitable if working alone, not as a group)
