This is driving me absolutely NUTS. I'm working in Fireworks on a daily basis and I use symbols a lot. But ever since the last update for Fireworks CS6, every time I copy a state, it doesn't copy the symbols as well.
If the symbol is grouped (whether with other elements, or not), the symbol gets copied.
It's been a pain these past days to work around this issue. But when searching the forums, I discovered that nobody else seems to have this problem, so maybe I did something wrong? Can anyone help?
Same issue here. I actually didn't realize that it was a symbol issue until I read your post. Had to share my layers across states but that's not really what I need. I doubt there's a fix coming from Adobe any time soon, but fingers crossed. Didn't have this issue with CS6 I had on another machine. For now I'll just use your workaround of grouping the symbol.
Me and my colleague got the same issue. Happened to us after the Fireworks latest update. Reinstalling Fireworks and not applying the latest update (which is kinda paradox) solved the problem for us. Hope this helps.
I was experiencing this same issue. I found a work around by deleting and rebuilding the Fireworks preferences file using the knowledgebase article below. After restarting Fireworks I was able to duplicate states with all symbols being copied accross. I hope this works for you guys too!
