You'd need to set up Layer Comps in PS first, then you can import
based on the Layer comp, rather than the entire file.
Hi there, thanks for your reply.
I just tried this
1) go into my photoshop file and make invisible all of the layer folders
2) make my 'home' layer folder visible (only)
3) create new comp
4) click yes for 'visibility', 'position' and 'appearance' and then 'ok'
4) hide 'home' and then make 'portfolio' layer folder visible
5) create new comp
etc etc for 8 pages
6) save the photoshop file
the problem is, i tried importing just one comp into fireworks, but it is still importing EVERY layer and it's contents. It's almost pointless using comps for me, as i have all my pages in nice pages within photoshop...
Did i do something wrong?
also when importing, can i not just import it to the stage in the middle. It wants me to select a rectangle and it's not an exact science..
Because PS has no concept of Fireworks Pages, the best FW can do is
import the layer comp, so unfortunately, you will still get all the
layers, but at least the visibility of specific layers in a comp is
I don't build my web page designs in PS, so I avoid the issue
FW import can import by simply clicking on the canvas or by clicking
and dragging if you need to scale the artwork.
If you just click in the upper left (or right, or where ever) corner
of your canvas, FW will bring everything in and all the artwork will
be selected. Then you can use the Shift and arrow keys to quickly
reposition the entire layout.
