I have many .png files created in earlier versions of Fireworks than CS4. I cannot select any item in the first ten that I tried. Can anyone tell me how to select items in CS4. Selecting them on the main screen does nothing. I can turn items off in the layers panel, but can find no way to edit a file.
Has anyone else had this problem?
There also seems to be a large degree of incompatibility with the fonts that I have in CS3 and CS4. CS4 seems to need to convert them for some reason.
Can anyone help?
For reference, I have deleted the preference file, and am using Windows XP latest edition, and Fireworks is version 10.0.3.011. It all worked fine before the recent update.
Meantime I have to get to work so its back to CS3

Solved - all layers turned off!
Given myself a good talking to.
All have a laugh.
FW CS4 has the Adobe Type Engine, in order to make it more compatible
with Photoshop and Illustrator. Text is handled differently than you
are used to.
There is also an update available for on adobe.com for FW CS4.
Thanks for the information regarding the Adobe Type engine, which explains
all the error messages. I do not use either of these programs, due to the
high cost of ownership.
