    Pop up menu display problem

    SeaZee
      I have been using Fireworks for a short while, and am still learning my way around. I have had problems with pop up menus in that once the art is placed in a Dreamweaver page, any spaces in the text of the pop up menus are replaced with a capital E with a circumflex. I have managed to get rid of the errant character in the past but am not sure exactly how! Now the problem is back and driving me crazy! I don't know if this is a font problem, a Fireworks problem or a Dreamweaver problem, but any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!

      I should add that I am using version 6.0 with on a Mac with OSX 10.4.7

          If the first sentence is true, then you should not use the pop-up menus. In
          fact, nobody should use them. There are much better ways. The FW pop-ups
          are poorly conceived and poorly implemented, and will cause you much more
          trouble than you save by using them.

          In addition to the pop-up menus, version 6.0 was just as troublesome. There
          were many unfortunate problems with that release version. You should update
          to 6.1 at your earliest convenience (use the updater at the Adobe site).

            I have hunted high and low for an update to 6.1 and not only can't I find that, it seems as though Adobe is disavowing all knowledge of Fireworks MX v. 6.0!

            If you know where I can find an updater, please send the URL!

            Thanks

              This is a mistaken post. There was no 6.1 updater for FW. Sorry if it was
              me that sent you on this wild goose chase....
