Dreamweaver – Flashing Divs
I recently got a new computer system, which meant reinstalling all my software <wince>. At any rate, one of the problems I ran into was that, in Dreamweaver, running the cursor over a div (or typing into a div) would cause the whole div to kind of “flash” … that is, the text area would flash (it looks like something in the background appears, and the text “blinks”) with every character you type. This is, as you can imagine, pretty annoying.
I’d solved this earlier on another computer but couldn’t find the solution this time. So, as I’m also using this blog as a respository for such information (because our internal intranet is only a bunch of web pages without a search function), I’ll put it here in hopes that anyone who is pestered by this feature can find it. And that non-intuitive solution is simply a change in the Preferences panel:
Don’t ask me why checking this option stops the flashing div phenomenon (heck, I don’t even know what "offscreen rendering" could possibly mean), but it does.
