    Fireworks creates a folder after saving a file

    planete.game57

      Hello,

      I contacted you because I have a little problem with Fireworks CS4.

      Before I used Fireworks 8, and I did not have this problem.

      When I save a file or I export a jpeg file on my software automatically creates a folder in addition to the jpeg image.
      Before I had only the image file and not more.

      How can I create this problem?

      Thank you! Happy holidays to all!

          Hi,

           

          I think this is a bug. I see it from time to time, too.

           

          Fireworks CS4 sometimes is getting "confused" so it may try to create a folder for images when exporting a file even if actually it is only one image you are exporting (like if you will export a PNG file not as option: "Images only" but "HTML and images" or "CSS and images" -- in such cases, Fw could create a folder for the images).


          You may try the following: Open your PNG file in Fireworks. Use ctrl+shift+x or ctrl+shift+r to preview+export or directly export the file. Make sure that in:

           

          "Export: {dropdown with options here}"

           

          ... "Images only" is selected (on the EXPORT dialog box, where you insert the file name -- the "Images only" can be selected below the filename).

           

          Try to export the file, see what happens. Or try to restart Fireworks.

           

          I see the bug only sometimes, not sure what triggers it, but sometimes it will simply disappear.

           

          Hope this helps...

            Hello,

            Yes indeed, it is a bug, but I managed to solve it yesterday!

            In fact, it is sufficient to export the image first by selecting HTML Document and Images and uncheck the option "Place images in subfolders", then it must revert to the selected images and has only one exports it and it's done.

            Perhaps the first export creates a new folder but then it's settled!
            It's still a bug, it should not create files when you export only a picture.

            Hopefully it will be resolved in the next updates of the software;)

            Good Christmas and New Year!

              That's a good workaround! :-)

               

              Please, report the bug here:

              https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

               

              so that the Fireworks team is aware of it! (Just select Fireworks in the dropdown).

               

              I am sure that this issue is already known internally to the Fw team, but no harm will be done if you report it, too! (And I hope the bug will disappear in the next release)

               

              Cheers,

              and have a Merry Christmas, too!

                Yes I think so, many had noticed and did not report.

                I will immediately report this bug!

                Thank you and good continuation:)
