I want to ask a question on CCS export.
I read in http://www.adobe.com/devnet/fireworks/articles/export_css_images.html and some other articles that the positioning mode will be forced to "absolute positioning" when there are overlapping objects(or overlapping slices, which I am not certain about).
I have tried with this and used the trick to manually create a pair of small overlapping slices on a page to force absolute positioning. However, other than doing this, is there setting in fireworks to permanently set "absolute positioning" mode, even when there are neither overlapping objects nor slices?
Not sure about this.
A word of advice: Absolute positioning is generally best used in small doses only. It works well for images (which have fixed dimensions), but not so great for text elements, as these can expand or contract based on typeface, sizing, spacing, etc. This can lead to page elements overlapping unintentionally. Generally speaking, web pages are meant to flow.
I found a way after reading the discussion on overlapping text http://www.adobe.com/devnet/fireworks/articles/export_css_images.html:
1. create two text object.
2. move them so they overlap.
as long as there is overlapping text, the whole page will be exported in absolute positioning mode.
