    Uanble to locate Placeholder tool om Fireworks 2004

    sovereign6
      Hi all

      I have created a web page in Fireworks MX2004 and need to export it to Dreamweaver in order to edit certain text blocks.

      I have read up on some tutorial about inserting slices and it mentions that I should be able to insert a placeholder.

      I have checked through the entire Fireworks and unable to locate this tool.

      It says that it should be under Windows - Object Placehloder.

      There is no Placeholder tool available.

      Do I slice the entire page into smaller slices or only the place where I need to edit the content?

      Urgently need help here please.

      Cheers

          It's in Dreamweaver, not Fireworks. It's simply a way of creating a
          space in your Dreamweaver page for an image.

          You don't create entire web pages in Fireworks. You create images to use
          on web pages in Fireworks. Slice and export them to the assets folder of
          the site you have defined in Dreamweaver. Build the HTML page in
          Dreamweaver with the images you created in Fireworks
