Fuck Adobe Dreamweaver CS4

I had to deal with a whole bunch of fucking nonsense just to write this damn article.

I’ve been using Dreamweaver for this site since it’s been up, and I’ve never had a single problem. I started out with Dreamweaver MX 2004, and eventually decided to upgrade to Dreamweaver 8. I never had any problems that I couldn’t figure out after an hour of destroying things because I don’t know my own strength then verbally abusing whoever’s in the vicinity because they told me to calm down.

Recently, I decided to upgrade to Windows 7, which surprisingly doesn’t suck. After validating my pirated copy of Windows 7, I went to install my pirated copy of Dreamweaver 8, all the while listening to my pirated music on Windows Media Player. Turns out Dreamweaver 8 isn’t compatible with Windows 7, even when using the “Run in previous version of Windows” mode. The installer freezes up and I have to go to my processes and shut it down manually. The same was to be said for my pirated copy of Flash 8. My pirated copy of Photoshop CS2 worked fine though. So I decided to pirate the latest versions of Flash and Dreamweaver, which were CS4, and made by Adobe (who bought out Macromedia a while back). Upon discovering that individual copies of Flash CS4 and Dreamweaver CS4 were hard to come by, I simply downloaded Adobe Master Suite CS4, which also has other things I could use, like Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, Premiere CS4, and Soundbooth CS4. These all work in Windows 7.

This morning, I fired up Dreamweaver CS4 to write an article about why hate crimes legislation is racist, and I was bombarded with nonsense that I really didn’t feel like having to figure out.

Dreamweaver has a bar on the bottom that allows you to change the format of highlighted text, like the size, boldfacing it, etc. I went to make my article title 150% and bold, when this window popped up:

HERE IS WHERE A CENTERED SCREEN CAP WOULD GO IF DREAMWEAVER WASN’T MADE BY DIPSHITS WHO FEEL THAT I SHOULD HAVE TO CENTER THE ENTIRE PAGE IF I WANT TO CENTER AN IMAGE.

I wondered if there was some kind of workaround for this that would allow me to go back to the apparently primitive method of being able to highlight text and click a button to achieve my desired result without having to learn CSS. I didn’t find a workaround, but I did find out that the “Community Experts” at Adobe’s forums are condescending assholes. I’d like to give an especially big shout-out to Mr. David Powers, the Faggot King of the Community Experts. I HOPE YOU DIE IN A CAR WRECK AND YOUR WIFE GETS AIDS YOU COCKSUCKER. One drooling imbecile had the audacity to ask if there was a way to go back to the old outdated method of not having this bullshit box pop up all the time. Mr. Powers put that retard in his place by reminding him how obsolete and stoopid the old way was, and that this new way was the wave of the future and the user should stop being a pussy who’s afraid of change. God I want to wreck that asshole’s face with a sledgehammer.

I’m going to install CS3. Apparently that doesn’t have this problem.
