    "Edit with Fireworks"

      I recently upgraded to CS3.

      Before when using DW and Fireworks, I was able to open up a jpeg (from an email, for example) and then right click on the image and it would give me the option to "Edit with Fireworks."

      Since I have upgraded, it doesnt show that option anymore! This may be a Windows deal. Not sure.

          Go to Edit/Preferences and under File Types, see what the .jpg file type is
          associated with. If it's not Fireworks make it so and restart DW.

          • 2. Re: &quot;Edit with Fireworks&quot;
            Its not even recognizing my PNG files.

            I should be able to right click on any jpeg/gif/png and it give me the ablitly to edit in fireworks.

            Again, this may be more of a windows issue or fireworks issue.

            But even in DW, when you see a PNG in the Local Files window, the little icon to the left of the file name is not recognizing it as a FW file.

                In PREFERENCES | File Types / Editors, Make sure you show the correct path
                to FW in the field called "Fireworks:". Then, under the various desired
                graphics file extensions, REMOVE Fireworks so that the right panel is blank,
                and then RE-ADD Fireworks.

                Your other issue is a system issue, not a DW issue, and I believe you were
                given a solution earlier in the thread.
