I just wanted to share with you all that today I needed that data-driven merge wizard. I'm using CS4. The Extension Manager showed it activated but it was not ( I didn't appear under the Commands menu). I unchecked the activation checkmark. Then I closed fireworks and the extension manager. I launched Extension Manager again, enabling the data-driven merge wizard, and now Fireworks shows it under the Command menu.
Yes, It works now, back in command menu, though I have not test it yet.
btw I am still using CS3 as it's more stable then CS5..
Can anyone get this to work in CS5? It exports the images but ignores the XML and keeps the variables that are in the png. In CS3 it works perfectly so there doesnt seem to be anything wrong with the xml file or my template.
I've been having the same issue in Fireworks CS5. I can get the Data-Driven Graphics Wizard to generate new image that replace image variables, but the text variables do not work. I've tried multiple samples and none work with the text.
