DW CS5 how to right click within SELECTED image

The context menu (right click, PC) seems to be disabled still in CS5 (it has been for several versions) when the image is selected (clicked on previously)

Am i missing an intent by DW designers (i.e., what is the purpose to be prevented when an image is selected), or is this an unintended "feature"

Hi willsherwood,

I cannot see any reason for the behavior.  It's most likely a bug.

Macromedia used to have  dreamwish@macromedia.com
is there an easy way to suggest things like this to Adobe?
In the past, i've gotten forum responses from interns/summer hires that close out the suggestion saying that "why would anyone ever want to do such and such"  or   "you don't know what you're talking about"

(Some aspects/features used to work in the earliest PC versions of DW 1 and 2.)

i have a whole list that i look for being fixed in each new release (i've just recently gotten CS5)
A few pet peeves were indeed fixed in CS5.  YAY

I've largely given up on trying to suggest to Adobe that they listen to the customer base.  Your best bet is to run down David Powers who hangs out at the Adobe Forums and message him.  He's got some juice with Adobe's DW dev team.
