    Any way to add special characters/objects?

    Level 7
      In creating website layouts, I am always using little "pointers" like
      right-pointing triangles, arrows, bullets, etc but I end up rebuilding them
      each time because I haven't found a way to save these objects or choose from
      the existing (small) "Special Characters" group.

      Is there a way for me to save these for use in multiple .png files,
      withought having to copy/paste them from previous files or recreating?

      Thanks!

          Yes. Convert them to Symbols (Modify > Symbol > Convert to Symbol) and
          add them all to one PNG file. Save the PNG file to the Fireworks
          Libraries folder. On my machine that's located at

          C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Configuration\Libraries

          once there, you'll be able to access your custom library by clicking
          Edit > Libraries > Other.

            I'll try that! Thanks so much! This brings to mind another question:

            Does anyone know where I can buy pre-made buttons/arrows, etc on the web in
            .png format?

            Thanks!
