CSS Support? Follow
Any plans for upcoming additions to support CSS better in PHPStorm?
I ask because I still find myself needing to use Dreamweaver whenever I need to edit CSS. One thing in particular: In Dreamweaver, when you get the intellisense for a property, it shows you all the options. In PHPStorm, it only shows you the ones for a letter you type. So for example, if I type: "float:" in Dreamweaver I get all the possible float values suggested. In PHPStorm, I get nothing until I type a letter, and then I only get the values matching that letter. It defeats the purpose of the suggestions to make me know what letter to type.

It does work like you want -- you can invoke completion popup manually and you will see all css attributes that PhpStorm is aware of.
LOL? A little bit of basic knowledge of CSS (just first letter) will not hurt.
I agree, though I don't have the luxury of working in just one language/environment, so I don't have time to memorize every possible property value. I wish that CSS and XAML shared the exact same terminology, property names, and values, but sadly that hasn't happened yet :)
One of the nice things about VisualStudio and Dreamweaver is that you can get any value suggested, which lets it function like a dictionary so you don't have to dig out your cheat sheet of tags/etc.
Or just press ctrl + space and it will give you the hint, it's the same key combinations as in most other IDE's including Dreamweaver I think.
Awesome! That helps a lot!
BTW, VS and Dreamweaver just always show the full list by default, no extra keys necessary. That would be a nice thing to add, even if it was a optional setting.
