I've had several different people send me .png files saved in other graphics programs and they are not editable in Fireworks 8. Sometimes I can see the different layers and sometimes not but even when I can see the layers, when I click on the different parts they are highlighted but the data like font, color, etc. doesn't show up in property inspector so I can't edit it . The different layers are not locked either. Is there something I need to turn on/off?

PNG files created in other programs are not editable. They have been flattened. That's true even if they have been saved layer by layer. Fireworks is unique in placing special data in the head of a PNG file that enables the document to remain fully editable. I'm not aware of any other graphics software that does the same.
Thanks much! I thought I was doing something wrong.
