I have had an issue with FW since I got my new computer. When I am using the paintbrush there is a really bad lag. When I click on an area to paint it, then I drag the brush to make a stroke the cursor keeps moving and painting even after I release the mouse button. it continues on in the same direction as if I were still holding the button down. This is not good.
I am using FW in a CS3 web standard package. My new computer is a nice Alienware i7 system with 9g of ram, Nvidia 260 GTX, and Windows 7 64 bit. I guess the 64 bit Win7 may be the issue. I had read that CS3 was not officially supported by 64 bit OS's, but I have had no other major issues than this. I am looking at upgrading to CS5 soon. Does CS5 support 64 bit OS's?
Anyway, does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
Fireworks CS5 is a 32-bit application. My recommendation is try before you buy. Download the trial and see if it meets your needs. Fireworks is much improved over CS4 or even CS3
So is the lag caused by issues with me running the program in a 64 bit OS, or could it be something else?
