A. Select State 1.
B. Open Layers Panel, create a New Empy Layer.
C. Drag the vase image object to the New Empty Layer, keep this the active Layer.
D. Upper right of the Layers Panel, click the panel properties icon, then from the list choose Share Layer to States.
E. Still with State 1 active, do your Selection + Color Change on your vase image object.
The change will be populated across all states.
I only suggest B and C just to isolate the item you want constant (Shared to States), while keeping all other state objects unique.
That's exactly what I wanted, to keep the other items unique. Fantastic!
Thank you! I couldn't figure it out. Though there's a lot of information
about Fireworks, I'm actully finding it quite difficult to find the
specific information I want. I appreciate the help.
A lot of the basic workflows is outllined in the Help file (Window > Help), and I know what you mean, resources are short.
Don't hesitate to ask anything else.
