Hey Primal, when you double click a PNG file from Finder, what opens up, Preview or Fireworks?
You might have to change the PNG file association. This should help - http://www.fileinfo.com/help/mac-change-program.html
Thanks for your response, but as I stated in my posting:
The simple graphic (gradient with a drop shadow), is a stand alone FW png file. "Get Info" also confirms this.
So, I had already confirmed that it was indeed a FW file.
I appreciate your making this suggestion though—sometimes it's the simple things that get overlooked.

I'm not sure how to solve this one...since you're having this issue inside Illustrator, you might fare better posting it to the Illustrator board.
ISSUE: Roundtrip Workflow per Tutorial—Native Fireworks CS4 Files In Catalyst
Upon initiating the roundtrip from Catalyst (FC) to Illustrator (AI), I am presented with and dismiss the expected dialogue boxes as per tutorial. Upon initiating the "Edit Original" command in AI, it opens the ORIGINAL Fireworks file in my PREVIEW application, not Fireworks.
In AI, use the "RELINK" (Upper left-hand corner) command to link with the original file. Once this is done, I am presented, once again, with the expected diaglogue boxes but now, the file opens as it was expected without this step, in Fireworks where I can make my edits.

Thanks Atom, I stubled around and found a workaround. However, this is not how it is supposed to work.
Is this (my previous post) the proper way to submit Bug Reports?
Should I include my system info/config, or does anyone really check this forum for this purpose?

We do file bugs based on what we find in the forum. However, this sounds like an Illustrator issue, so I'd recommend posting it on the Illustrator forum. Can you reproduce the problem without using Catalyst as a middle-man?
The short answer is... NO
This IS NOT an Illustrator problem... it is a roundtrip "Workflow" routine created by Adobe, that works between the 3 applications.
Upon initiating the "Edit Original" command in AI (Illustrator)...
This "EDIT ORIGINAL" button does not exist in Illustrator by itself... only by initiating the Workflow routine in Catalyst does this appear in AI.
I suggest you forward this to Doug Winnie, Group Product Manger - Workflow
Aha. Thanks for the additional info. I'll have our roundtrip guys take a look.
Hi Primal Atom,
The Edit Original Button is active in Illustrator any time you place link (not embed) an image in Illustrator. If you place link a valid FW png into a fresh Illustrator document clicking Edit Original for the linked png does launch FW. However, when a valid (linked) FW png is passed from Catalyst to Illustrator via the temporary FXG file used in the Edit in Illustrator workflow clicking the Edit Original button for that image incorrectly launches Preview. This is a verified bug. Thank you for reporting this. Looks like you found the workaround.
