I've designed a couple of sites in Muse and anytime I go into a page and re-order objects by sending them backwards/to back/bring to front, my preferred ordering does not show up in IE8-9 or Chrome. The sites work fine in Firefox and Safari. Tooltips seems to be especially problematic in this regard, with triggers not accessible, text panels showing up in odd places or blank planels I did not place on the site showing up.
Any ideas here?? At this point, it seems like the only design features that are truly cross-browser compatible are photos, text and lightboxes.
If sites designed in Muse won't render on Chrome, that's a problem ... it's now 25% of the market. If they don't render in IE8/9, that's another 25% of the market.
My only solution is to design the site once, make it look the way I want, then start a completely new document and build it from bottom layer to top layer as it will appear, with the tooltips added last. There's got to be a better way.
Thanks for the reply. This is a live site, so I had to fudge it, which I did by incorporating most of the graphic elements into a layered Photoshop file and using that as the background. Instead of using an embedded video player, I had the video poster image open a new page, with the video embedded there. Finally, I made sure that none of the tooltip windows overlapped.
That seems to have gotten me something I can use, but I'm still curious about making ordering work as it's not always possible to design around the overlapping windows.
Is this not a problem you've seen before?
Overall, I'm very enthusiastic about Muse and using it in conjunction with Catalyst to allow clients to do some updating.
