Hello? Anyone there? Considering how many complaints I see on the web about FW CS4 crashing/hanging I'm surprised to get no responses. Is this the wrong place for questions like this?
Anyway, I have the option of upgrading to CS5 - will that fix this?
Also Adobe has a patch to fix all sorts of CS4 problems but I couldn't tell from the description whether it addreses problems on the PC - it seemed to be focussed on the Mac.
Finally, there is an auotosave or autoupdate feature for the PC version of FW CS4? (there apparently is on the Mac)
The CS4 patch addressed sever Mac issues. Not PC's. I recommend you download the CS5 trial and test it out before purchasing.
There is a free AIR auto-backup tool for Fireworks.
The link, above, lists "Use with Adobe Fireworks CS5 " under system requirements.
I just checked my upgrade option and I was wrong - I have several CS4 products and licenses and my upgrade option is not for the package that has Fireworks. So I'm stuck with Fireworks CS4. And reading on the web, there are zillions of complaints about its stability and reliability, so apparently I'm not alone in my problems. But my employer paid good money for this and it's costing me (and thus him) a lot of time and productivity! What are we supposed to do??
It works with CS4 as well. I would not have posted it if it did not.
