I converted to a Mac a year or so ago and was amazed how bad
Dreamweaver and Fireworks 8 were compared to the Windows version. I
couldn't find anyone complaining about it the web, so I figured it
was just me. After a month I eBayed the Mac and went back to a PC.
Well, I couldn't do without the Mac again so I bought a 3.0
GHz MacPro with 3GB RAM a few months ago. I eagerly awaited the
release of CS3 thinking "Ahhh, maybe they fixed the stuff I didn't
like. I mean, it was SO bad that SOMEONE had to complain about it."
Trying it out tonight and I've found this...
Scrollbars in the floating panels
don't work with 4 of the mice I own
I make my own keyboard shortcuts and
save them. When I return to Fireworks, they're intermittently back
to the "Web Standard"
Much like the keyboard shortcut
issue, my saved Workspace Layout doesn't load when I start
In Preferences, I point to an
additional Photoshop plug-in directory and Patterns directory. I
exit Fireworks and the plug-ins are there... quit and start
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, oh it refreshed, good. Yawn.
If anyone feels like duplicating the Keyboard
shortcut/Plug-In/Patterns issue, this is how I do it...
1. Save yourself a set of Keyboard shortcuts
2. Save yourself a Workspace, arrange the floaty panels
around where you want 'em
3. Go into Prefrences and find an additional Plug-Ins folder
4. Restart Fireworks
5. The Plugins are there! Yay
6. Go back into Preferences and Browse to a different
7. Restart Fireworks
8. Whoa, Keyboard shortcuts and Workspace are back to their
defaults, and gone are the Plug-ins AND the Patterns.
Hopefully someone else on a Mac can duplicate that.
I've used and been an advocate of this program since version
3, on Windows. Absolutly love it. Do any other
ex-Windows-now-Mac-users know what I am talking about?
I could list a load of stuff about my old friend Dreamweaver
but that's a different forum.
I know exactly what you talking about ...
I've posted a lot of message about it in this forum ...
adobe's people seems to be blind to my messages ...or their mouse
jump over the line of my post ... i don't know...
