just me?: issue with creating a second state containing roll-over buttons

Sep 17, 2012 9:33 AM

Hi folks,


I have bee experiencing a strange issue. I would like to create a second state from a page that contains roll-over buttons.

In that second state, the roll-over button always display their (second) "over"-state and not as I expected their (first and initial) "up"-state.

This issue is persistent throughout any fw document, just repeat these steps here:


1) open new document

2) from common library, select any button and place on canvas

3) got to "states" panel and select "duplicate"

4) on second state, button will display "over"-state, not initial "up"-state.


Now is it just me, or do you have the same "bug" [assuming, its a bug, not a feature (; ] ?

    That's interesting! I'm no expert on this, but I suspect that in the world of Fireworks, animations and buttons (the two uses of States) are mutually exclusive. They're not meant to be combined.

    May I ask why you're creating a second state for your page? Would it work to define it as a new page instead?

    Ah, so you're using States to create Layer Comps (à la Photoshop)! That makes sense.


    I'm glad you found a workaround.
