Could someone clue me in on how to copy text out of fireworks and paste it into dreamweaver, text editor, email, etc?
When I highlight text in a Fireworks .png document and try to paste it in a different application it has somehow converted it into an image.
I never had this issue with my older versions of Fireworks. I also remember there being an option of a text editor in the older version.
This no longer seems available in CS5.
Any help would be appreciated.
Instead of highlighting the text with the text tool, click on the text object in the Layers panel. Choose Copy. In Dreamweaver, choose Paste Special and select the text only option. You should be able to paste it into an email as well.
That option did work in dreamweaver, but not for mac mail, text edit, word, and a browser based CMS tool I'm using.
Seems like a wonkie work around for something that was missed in CS5 Dev. or just not intuitively thought out. Maybe i'm just partial to Fireworks MX, and 8 that I never seemed to have any hick-ups with. I've had CS5 for a little over a month and have already encountered a few issues.
