Thanks for the quick reply Jim -
A single negative indent value doesn't quite give me enough control. At least not what I'm used to compared to the other Adobe apps. Uusually you spec a first line indent value and an indent value for the remaining lines in the paragraph. (ie 8, -8 pts, respectively)
OR an Indent-here command. (I know there's no such thing in HTML, but that's not my concern in designing protypes/mockups - and CSS does handle that quite plainly these days.)
I know the FireWorks isn't ideal application for typesetting, but considering it's been rev'd up several times since the MacroMedia acquisition, you'd think someone would have solved this basic integration issue by now. I doubt it's fixed in CS5.5 either...UGH.
There is no CS5.5 for Fireworks. The update for Fireworks is 5.1 (no new features, just
fixes and optimzation). Same for Photoshop and a few other apps.
As for the typographical control you are wanting, did you know you can set a different indent for each paragraph in a text block? It's somewhat manual but does offer some flexibility.
