    Dreamweaver cut and paste issue?

    Any Dreamweaver pros out there?

    I just re-installed Dreamweaver CS3 after a pc crash, and for the life of me I can't seem to find the setting for this simple issue:

    Whenever I paste HTML code, e.g. "<p>hello there</p>", either from outside of, or within, Dreamweaver, instead of pasting the HTML brackets, it pastes the HTML code, like "&lt;p&gt;", and then doesn't necessarily paste them where the cursor is.

    I tried every setting under Preferences... Copy/Paste, but get the same problem with each one.

    Is there a setting I'm missing to address this?

    Are you pasting in Code View or Design View? I think you want to be in Code View.

    Is there such thing as a pro who uses Dreamweaver...?

    Dreamweaver just tends to pull that kind of crap. I stopped using it, for this and several other reasons.

    Don't believe there is...

    Possiby, that's a good point.

    I was in Code view, so that wasn't it, but good thought.

    I couldn't figure it out, so I restarted DW and the problem went away. Weird stuff...

    That's Dreamweaver for you.
