    Unable to Unlock Layers

    Gary_Whitling
      Hello,

      I have downloaded a template from Yootheme which is for Joomla, I am trying to unlock some layers but it is impossible?

      Is there any setting/protection that could stop me from doing this? I have paid for this template but as I say can not edit the layers which I should be able to do.

      I am using Fireworks CS3

          Hi,

          Without actually seeing the problem It's hard to comment, but you should
          just be able to click on the padlock Icon in the layers panel.

            Hi Peter,

            Yea, I tried that as normal but the padlocks will not unlock?

            Very Strange and very frustrating too.

            Any Suggestions

              Have you checked to see if they are 'Read only' files? Right click on the
              file in question and select 'Properties and uncheck 'Read only' if checked.
              All I can think of.

                Hi Peter,

                Thanks for the suggestion, Checked that and it is not read only.

                Can I send you the file so you can check with your program?

                    Hi Peter,

                    I have found out how to unlock the images.

                    1. Open up the image source file in Fireworks CS3
                    2. Then look to the top right of the screen/workarea,
                    3. Click on "Pages" then on layout[Master Page],
                    4. Then select "layers" proceed to unlock the sections you need to work with.

                    Cheers for your suggestions and help

                    Regards

                    Gary

                      Well done!

                      I wasn't having any luck. Glad you got it sorted.
