I've just started using Fireworks and am curious if there is a way to link external documents as part of the website comp.
My documents are .pdfs existing on my desktop and I want to add them as links to a specific page on my site. I can't seem to figure out how to do this. I'm sure it's simple (at least I hope it is). I know I can import it in, but it imports the physical document as it appears when you open it up.
Let me know how this is handled.
You're probably better off making the links in the HTML code, rather than in Fireworks. Fireworks is not a code-editing environment. Putting links in to an HTML document is really pretty easy, but you need to understand how HTML works.
If you have some .pdf files on your desktop, it might be a good idea to put them in a folder together. At least a copy of them. Then, also put your HTML file in the same folder. When linked files are in the same folder, the link tags are easier. A good explanation for how to make links is available here http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/ , about halfway down, under "Adding links to other pages."
If you don't know much about writing and editing HTML, here's a nice, introductory tutorial: http://www.sitepoint.com/article/html-css-beginners-guide/
