    Photoshop's Layer Comps in Fireworks: a "Non-feature"?OR

    ArchTools Level 1

      As I began to read about Fireworks, I read excitedly that Fireworks CS4 understands Photoshop's Layer comps, which are nothing more than a simple way of saving preset layers in either an "on" or "off" state.

       

      However, once I open Fireworks, there does not seem to be a way to actually do this.

       

      The only thing I can find on the topic is an import feature that will access only a single layer comp. That's it. I would be doing the same thing if I were to set the desired set of layers on or off in Photoshop and just open in Fireworks. It's really not good for much of anything at all.

       

      OR, the feature is actually there in Fireworks, and I just can't find it.

       

      This is important to me as my page is a PSD that has dozens of layers.

       

      I've handeled this easily in the past with ImageReady, which really does have a layer comp feature.

       

      What's going on in Fireworks?

       

      Am I missing something?

       

      When a document has dozens of layers and a few dozen possible states, or variations, how do you set up a preset of layers?

       

      Are layer comps a "nonfeature" of Fireworks, or am I missing something?

       

      Thanks!
