    Fireworks: newer issues - selecting elements no longer works

    creativecomponent Level 1

      Ever had issues in FW where CLICKING elements no longer works?

      It's like Smart Selection is dead— acting like Photoshop (hahah)


      Elements are now only selectable in the laters panel, or by dragging-over them on the canvas.

      Same with bitmap selection and text areas too.


      I recorded it; the circles that appear are 'clicks':


      To try to repair, I completely uninstalled, and (per an adobe forum post) I installed this Java: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?viewlocale=en_US&locale=nl_NL

      Deleted all prefs/library folders, rebooted and installed a fresh FW.CS6 — but it's exactly the same.


      Running OS X El Capitan, but this first happened in Yosemite a week before I updated OS X.




      Poor Little Fireworks. :-(
