I wanted to transfer a set of group layer to another page in Fireworks CS5, how can I do that?


When I try to copy paste, it doesnt paste as a group instead paste as layers, then I have to again group it and name it Why Fireworks doesn't understand that I have copied a set of group layer?

    You can share a layer to another page in Fireworks by selecting the layer in the Layers panel, then clicking on the small fly-out menu in the upper-righthand corner of the Layers panel and choosing "Share Layer to Pages". This opens up a two-column dialog, where can select the new page and add it to the right-hand column, "Include layer to page(s)".


    As far as moving a layer into another file, you may need to use a Command like "L - Copy to Next Doc" from John Dunning's Frame and Layer Utilities command set:
