    Exporting images withOUT rollover frames?

    Level 7
      Small pet peeve that I'm hoping is fixed by some preference
      setting...whenever I do a layout for export, I usually have a handful of
      images that will have rollovers, and a whole bunch that won't.

      However, when I export, ALL the images end up with rollover/_f2
      images...even those that aren't explicitely set with a behavior. Is there a
      way to turn that option off?

          In the Export dialog, click the Options command.
          Click Document Specific and confirm what naming conventions is used for the Slice File Names AND Frames Names sections.

            And what am I supposed to check for?

              You have control how the filenames is outputted.
              Check what's in the Slice Names/Frames Names sections or change the allotted parameters to your liking.

                That's not the issue. The issue is that slices that AREN'T set to a rollover
                behavior are still outputting two frames. Is there a way to stop that?

                For instance, I have three slices:

                a
                b
                c

                I set a and b to have simple rollover behaviors. I then export and get this:

                a
                a_f2
                b
                b_f2
                c
                c_f2

                I have no need/want for that c_f2 file.

                  One option is to use button symbols for those two-frame rollovers. They
                  will export properly and your single frame elements will exported
                  properly too.

                  Other options include selecting the two-frame slices and choose export
                  selected slices.

                  A third option if you have CS3 is to use multiple pages, and have those
                  two frame slices on their own page, and the rest of the document that
                  does not require two frames can reside on its own page.

                  If you're interested, I have a much more detailed article on this at

                      Thanks, Jim. I find this a silly 'bug', but I suppose the best workaround is
                      to just keep my rollover menus in a separate file.
