    Fireworks and Vista

    KillSwitch1
      Hey All,
      I am running Fireworks in Vista, and the panels on the right side are a horrible black color. I want to change this because it is annoying. Dreamweaver's panels seem to be a neutral color when running under Vista. I am not sure if this is a setting I changed by accident or what, but any advice would be appriciated.
      Thanks!

          For the time being that is the color of the panels in Vista. For the
          time being FW does not support the Vista Aero look.

            Unbelievable, I can't believe they released FW without Vista support, this was the same issue with FW8. FW9 was promised and is advertised as being compatible with Vista. They should not include it in a CS3 bundel and sell it as Vista compatible. It's just wrong.

              Works here: Vista Business, 1.86GHz processor, 2G RAM.

              In fact, the whole CS3 suite works just fine. Although I try not to
              have too many powerhouse apps running at once as a rule, I can run FW
              and DW and PS and Acrobat with no appreciable slowdown.

                I'm running Vista Ultimate with 4 GB of RAM, dual core 2.2 GHz. Are you saying that on Vista Business it does not switch the "color scheme" from "Windows Aero" to "Windows Basic" ? (And then upon exiting FW it switches back to Aero.)

                  No, I don't think so.

                  The title bars for all the panels are black in FW rather than the grey
                  I see in PS or Flash. But that is local to FW only, no other apps are
                  affected when FW is running.

                  And I consider that such a trivial difference that to be honest I
                  didn't even notice till you asked about colour schemes.

                    The black panel headers are by design. But it's a shame that some of the CS3
                    suite application don't have the new user interface that uses Photoshop or
                    Flash. Even worst Dreamweaver CS3 and Fireworks CS3, as you said, show
                    diferences in the user interface.

                    I think Adobe should take more care about interface consistency design
                    though all the suite applications.

                    Regards,
                    Angel.

                      This was the first major upgrades since the Adobe - Macromedia merger.
                      I venture to guess that eventually the interfaces will be more
                      consistent. Making all the interfaces consistent is probably a huge
                      undertaking and why it will take a while for all the products to catch up.
