DW8 grabs remote file when I try to edit local file

Advertisement

DW8 acts like it was programmed this way, but it is not
correct behavior. Perhaps someone can shed some light on this for
me.
I have the local website on a mapped network drive to a
different server, and the remote (live) site is on another server
only accessible via FTP. When I have the Files View drop-down set
to Local View and the [Connects to remote host] button is NOT
depressed, I should be able to double-click an .htm file and have
it open up for editing. So, I do that and it then asks if I want to
Get Dependent Files. I always say NO to this question. When the
file opens, for some reason it has grabbed the REMOTE version from
the live server (via FTP, I assume) without telling me it is doing
that, and it has overwritten the local copy of the file. This is
bad because other people in the office use different web editors,
and they did work on that file prior to me trashing it....rats!!!
WHY is DW8 grabbing the remote file for editing when I don't
want it to? I want to edit the dang LOCAL file like I expect!! What
am I doing wrong? Or is DW8 doing it wrong, and everyone in the
world just expects it to be that way? How can I edit ONLY the local
version of a file that exists on the remote server? I found that if
the file is NOT on the remote server, then it simply opens the
local file for editing as usual. I do not remember MX2004 acting
this way because I never had that problem prior to my DW8 upgrade.
Perhaps a clue is the dialog box that pops up asking if I
want to "get dependent files"...the word GET is suspicious to
me....
HELP!!!! TIA!

CI/CO uses the remote site as the resource for files, not the
local site.
The scheme is -
1. You check out from the remote site
2. You edit and save intermediate steps locally
3. When editing is finished, you check in to the remote site
This way, nobody can GET a file that you have already checked
out until you
check it back in.
When you double click a local file in the File manager, if
that file is NOT
checked out to you, it will be checked out to you FROM THE
REMOTE site. If
it is checked out to you, it will open from your local site.

Unfortunately, it makes complete sense.
