    How do I export a dropdown menu from fireworks

    michael_b_s
      I am trying to use fireworks to export a drop down menu and import it into another page I created in Dreamweaver. how do I do this?

      2. Is there a way to use my own customized graphic buttons for the dropdown menu in fireworks?

      3. How do I export a rollover in fireworks?

          Yes. Create the style you want to use and save it to the Styles panel.
          With the new style selected, open the Styles panel menu and choose
          Export styles. Export to the Fireworks Nav Menu folder. On my machine
          that's located at

          C:\Documents and Settings\Linda Rathgeber\Application
          Data\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Nav Menu

          Once you have saved the new style there, it will appear in the Image >
          Styles selections for the pop-up menus.

          From the Help files:

          Exporting a sliced document-
          By default, when you export a sliced Fireworks document, an HTML file
          and associated images are exported. The exported HTML file can be viewed
          in a web browser or imported into other applications for further editing.


          Before export, be sure you have the appropriate HTML style selected in
          the HTML Setup dialog box. For more information, see Setting HTML export
          options.

          Select File > Export.
          Navigate to the desired folder on your hard drive.
          Select HTML and Images from the Export pop-up menu.
          Type a filename in the File Name (Windows) or Save As (Macintosh) box.
          Select Export HTML File from the HTML pop-up menu.
          Select Export Slices from the Slices pop-up menu.
          (Optional) Select Put Images in Subfolder.
          Click Export.

          The files Fireworks exported appear on your hard disk. Images and an
          HTML file are generated in the location you specified in the Export
          dialog box.

          For more information about the options available in the Export dialog
          box when HTML and Images is selected as the file type, see Exporting
          Fireworks HTML.
