I'm not afraid of sounding dumb.
I am learning how to create a master web page and several other pages of content in FW.
I have created a master page with three buttons.
The three other pages just have some text. Page1 Page2 and Page3
I have set up all the links correctly.
Now if i export and save as PDF, it works.
So I have two questions.
1) Neither Preview nor F12 shows a functioning set of pages.
so how do i test the links and the basic function of the master page and its three sub pages inside Fireworks?
2) How do i export it as a collection of html pages and their images?
The only way i can do this so far is to export each page and hope that the .htm names i give them match the page names i gave them in FW.
There must be a better way. What if i have 100 pages in the project?
Thank You all as usual.
The Preview mode will only show things like rollovers. Links to other
pages will not work. If the links are set correctly, File > Preview in
Browser > Preview all pages . . . should work
As for the true linking to your other pages for prototyping purposes,
select the button and then choose the htm page link from the Link box
in the Property inspector. Make sure to select the links BELOW the
divider line in the flyout list.
Keep in mind that your final web pages should be built in a web page
editing package, not from the exported html from Fireworks. The only
potential exception to this is the Export CSS and Images workflow, but
this option will not export rollover effects and will still need some
tweaking in DW.
