    Problem with common library icons

    -Amaterasu- Community Member

      Okay. Everything was ok until...

       

      I am starting to learn AF for web designing, and I bought the Video2Brain course to learn Web designing with Fireworks.

       

      The video instructor has a "Social Network" icon set folder on his common library, but when I came to that step the folder was nowhere to be found. In fact he has some folders that I don't have like "personalized symbols",  "Video", "Wireframe" and "Browser Chrome", and unlike  him I have  folders he doesn't have like ads wireframe, iPad wireframe, iPhone wireframe, JQuery Bootstrap, etc.

       

      I tought we had the same version, wich mean CS6 but it looks as if we didn't

       

      And I'm pretty sure the Social Network folder was or is part of Fireworks as I have seen it on other people's comments and videos., so I don't know why I don't have it.

       

      I know I can download some other pretty icons from the web, but this just annyoned me

          I don't have "Social Network" icons in my Common Library either. Here's what the panel looks like:

          This is in Fireworks CS6 for Mac. I believe these are all defaults (no custom folders). I suppose it's possible that a slightly different set could be circulating via the Creative Cloud, or on the Windows operating system. It doesn't seem likely, but I couldn't rule it out either.

           

          Keep in mind that the Common Library can be customized. You can add to it using commands in the Document Library or Common Library panel fly-out menus. Or you can add items directly into the Common Library folder on your hard drive (located in the user library Application Support folder for Fireworks CS6).

           

          FOLLOW-UP: On closer inspection, the Icons folder seems to contain some "social network"-type icons, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Dribbble, etc. Perhaps you can find what you're looking for there.

           

          It could be that your Video2Brain course was based on a beta version of Fireworks CS6 that used a different folder naming scheme.

            I am very sorry if the pictures are too little or have bad quality. Is just that it appears like this on the video. This is what I'm talking about.

            The icons are the ones that you see on every webpage, the so well known "share icons". I have been trying to find png or psd versions of them on the web, but it's impossible

              I also don't have the folders MOBILE ICONS, SOCIAL NETWORK and VIDEO in my Fireworks CS6 Common Library. Seems that there are useful icons.

               

              How can I get them?

               

              thanks!
