I've been designing a website using Fireworks CS3. After
reading about all of the new features in CS4, I ordered it. It
arrived yesterday. After I installed CS4, I opened the file I had
been working on in FWCS3 in FWCS4. There was a message that said
"This file contains text that was created in a previous version of
Fireworks. This legacy text must be updated before you can edit it.
Updating the text might change the appearance of your text." I
clicked update and the file opened with the type in the default
font and all of the formatting gone. In addition, the type looked
degraded: really pixilated. When I reopened the file in FWCS$, it
would not come into the foreground so I couldn't work on it. I quit
the program and reopened the file and the type looks better. The
app wasn't frozen when I tried to escape, just inaccessible. So
far, I'm not happy about the upgrade.
My question: Is this my inexperience with the Fireworks CS4
app, or is this version going to be a nightmare? And, of course,
does anyone have suggestions? I can put CS4 on the shelf until I
finish this project if it means having to remake all of the files.
Thanks! I read the tutorial you sent me to and it was very
helpful. Spent the day in CS4 fixing all of the type that got
messed up in the transfer. Earlier today I quit the app, then
re-opened it and type didn't look ragged like it did the first
time. I have no idea why, but I'm glad.
