    Fireworks - Behaviors Tab

    elto218


      Once I insert a button in Fireworks and add behaviors to it, the Behaviors tab only displays the Events column. The other columns that used to appear are no longer there. Also, only "OnMouseOver" appears for each behavior I added and I am now able to change the behavior to OnClick or any of the others. Can you help me with this?

          Are you attempting to add behaviors to a button you created in the
          Button editor?

            Yes I am. Somehow in the Behaviors window the columns have disappeared and I can't change the action from OnMouseOver to OnClick.

            I received a note to delete the Preferences.txt file, however I can't find it. Do you know how to find this file?

            Thanks again,
            Enrique

              The buttons produced by the button editor have everything hardwired into
              them. Their behaviors cannot be changed or added to. If you want to
              apply custom behaviors you'll need to create the buttons and button
              states manually.

              Here's a quick tutorial on how to create a simple rollover manually. If
              you want multiple states, you would use multiple frames and apply the
              behaviors in the Swap Image editor.
