WeBuilder 2015 is a great program, but it lacks in one important are IMHO: editing the preview. PLEASE may we have WYSIWYG editing? I am having to use other programs to do this editing.

We're not planning WYSIWYG editing at this point and probably never will. WeBuilder is designed for people who know at least some HTML. The HTML code generated by WYSIWYG editing will always be somewhat worse than the hand-written code, and if you use side-by-side preview then you can instantly see how the page will look without sacrificing the tidyness of the resulting HTML code. You can also enable "Synchronize with Cursor" feature in the Preview panel, which will allow you to easily jump to the correct place in HTML code by clicking on the elements in the preview.

Just a quick note on this, although I understand its a code environment it would be handy to have basic 'design view' options for common tasks like inserting images, formatting text ..... I think a basic option could mean a lot of users from programs like Dreamweaver would consider switching, generally an unhappy community at the moment with what Adobe are doing with Dreamweaver. I don't want to speak for all Dreamweaver users but it seems to have had its day and RapidPHP/Webuilder are viable alternative that offer a good coding environment, tools and project management but just lacks the wysiwyg option.
