I have a serious problem that I have had for a couple of
years on different computers involving Fireworks and wonder if
anyone can help.
I have an image about 600x600 and I have 14 buttons on it.
Each button has a colour rollover effect and a behaviour attached
to it. The behaviour simply swaps an image in a box in the top
right of the image.
So if you mouse over a button the top right image changes.
And each button changes the top right image too.
It works perfectly in preview mode. However, when I export it
to a folder there over 550 files! I have worked out that there
should be in the region of 100. My problem is that I want to make
more buttons but this will lead to thousands of files.
I have one web site, here,
, where all the buttons in the middle of the screen change the
central image. When I export this, it exports 3,000 files! It has
23 layers and basically, exports 23 versions of the page, rather
than just the central image - or in the example above the top right
No Layer is shared over all States and I am at my wits end
because updating these pages takes about an hour and it is
something I do regularly so I lose a lot of time.
I hope I have explained this well!
Any help would be seriously welcome and very much appreciated
- I have used fireworks for years (ever since it came out) and if
someone can help I will go and answer other forum questions!
UPDATE - well I finished the file, there were 30 layers,
exported it to dreamweaver and there are 3,750 files in the
Without seeing your PNG we can't do much else besides guess.
Either way the simple answer is to not use any of the Fireworks
code. Create the images in Fireworks, export them, and then
assemble the final site in Dreamweaver or with any other web/text
