Coming from Photoshop... how do I move the contents of multiple layers across the page at one time?
In photoshop, i would click on one or more layesr in the Layers panel, and then use the move tool to move them all on the page. How do I do that in Fireworks? It seems to be too basic to be documented anywhere I have seen but the interaction is very different. I tried ctrl-clicking on multiple layers and sometimes is seems to work. the objects are selected and I can move them. Other times, it just refused to select anything or it only select the object within one of the selected layers.
It sort of looks like selecting a layer selects objects in that layer unless the layer has a child layer. Is that true? Seems a strange limitation if it is.
I saw a comment somewhere that suggrested grouping and ungrouping which seems a little complicated for a basic editing action. Also, if it won't select the objects on all of the selected layers.
I'm guessing that I'm missing a basic concept in Fireworks here.
I found that It worked if I selected a layer, if there is a child layer
then shift>select and ctr+click other layers or objects. You could also
lock layers/objects you don't want to move and use Select>Select All, if
you are moving most items.
