    FW CS4 Mac: Top left of window lost under Tools Panel and Application Bar

    Donok Level 1

      Hello!

       

      Somehow Fireworks started opening all my windows pushed to the top left, and tucked under the tools panel and the new Applications Bar - the only way to move windows, is to un-snap the bars and pull them off of the top of the screen -- really annoying.  I tried throwing out FW CS4's prefs files - no help.  Changing the view mode - no help...

       

      Help?

          Did you remember to close FW and reload it after trashing the prefs file?

            yep... in fact I quit FW before trashing the prefs.  Are you saying that that should have worked?  Just to make sure, I trashed the entrire contents of User>Library>Preferences>Adobe Fireworks CS4... right?

             

            Thanks, Don

              These are the steps that should be followed:

               

               

              Restore default preferences

              • Quit Fireworks.
              • Locate the Fireworks      Preferences file on your hard disk and delete it.
                The exact location of this file varies from system to system.

               

              • In Windows, preferences are      in your user-specific Fireworks configuration folder.

               

              •     Windows [Drive]:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Adobe\Fireworks CS#\English\

               

              • In Mac OS, preferences are in      the Library/Preferences folder in your user folder. For information about      locating your Mac OS user folder, see Apple Help.

               

              • Mac              [User]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS#/en/Fireworks Preferences

               

              • Note: On Mac OS, most      Fireworks user-specific configuration files are stored in your      user-specific Application Support folder.

                        The Fireworks CS4 Preferences file is an exception.

               

              • 3.  Restart Fireworks.
              • The next time Fireworks is launched, a new preferences      file will be created that restores Fireworks to its original      configuration.

                Throwing away the preference files in the user's /Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS#/en/Fireworks Preferences folder did nothing.

                 

                Every time I open a file it tucks the top left of the window up under the tools panel and the Application Bar.  I have to tear them apart if I want o get at my file's title bar or move it in any way.

                 

                No one else is getting this issue?  Weird thing, I had this with the beta version, but assumed they fixed it because it went away with the re-install of the official release... but, now it's back.

                 

                Ideas?

                 

                Thanks -- Don
