    Can't get Fireworks to stop creating notes

    no time for nickname
      All my Dreamweaver sites are set not to keep *.MNO notes. But every time I export an image to one of the folders in the site, it creates a note. If I delete them all, the next export creates a new Notes folder. I've searched through the Fireworks and DW documentation but can't find anything for DW other than the Site setting, and can't find anything at all for Fireworks. Can anyone help?

      Another thing I can't seem to alter in Fireworks is that the File Type in Optimise always defaults to PNG for a new file; I'm working mostly with JPGs and have to change it manually every time I create a new PNG. Is there somewhere I can change this default?

      (I'm using DW8 and FW8 under Windows 2000 by the way.)

          If you turn notes off, Fireworks and Dreamweaver will no longer be able
          to communicate with each other. You can cloak the notes (look up
          cloaking in the Dreamweaver help files) rather than uploading them to
          the server. However, if you still want to disable Design Notes for your
          site, in Dreamweaver choose Site > Manage Sites. The Manage Sites dialog
          box appears. Select your site, then click Edit. The Site Definition
          dialog box appears. Select Design Notes from the Category list on the
          left. The Site Definition dialog box displays the Design Notes options.
          Complete the dialog box. Click OK.

          Not that I'm aware of.

            Thanks Linda, but that's what puzzles me - design notes is unchecked - it shouldn't be keeping them.

              I don't know what to tell you. Have you posted your question on the
              Dreamweaver forum?

                I guess I could do that - I just thought since notes was turned off in DW it must be Fireworks that was causing it somehow.
