Is this a Windows or a Mac problem? In either case, I wonder if it's a minor OS configuration issue, where you just need to specify the new application as an editor of certain file types (like PNGs).
Well, the thing is, I have CS6 at home and its working as intended without being set as the default program for opening png files. Hmm, its weird and extremely annoying. Im forced to work on the CS5 in the meantime.
Ah, so it does work in Fireworks CS6—just not on your setup at work. Again, is this a Mac or Windows OS?
After re-reading your initial post, I realized I'm not clear on what you mean by dragging and dropping a document "onto the Fireworks menu bar". I was initally picturing dragging a document onto the Fireworks application icon in the Mac OS dock (or the Windows equivalent to this, if there is one).
Are you actually talking about the command menu that appears across the top of the application interface? If so, I can't open a document using this method in either CS5 or CS6.
Its a windows machine, and what i mean by drag-and-dropping is taking an
image file from any image format and dropping it in an already started FW6
program, either in the current window, or dropping it on the menu bar (top)
so it could open in another tab
Did you ever find a solution to this? I have the same problem - Fireworks CS6 on Windows 7, can't drag and drop files to open.
Drag your desired file on to the "Fw" icon on the top left most of the Fireworks window in order to open another tab without using Open tool.
The way I solved it is by right clicking Illustrator's icon on the desktop and going to properties. Then I went to the compartibility tab and unchecked the run as administrator. This solved the problem. There could be other solutions butthis one worked for me.
Check this link from where i got the solution.
