Fireworks swatches panel does not have the ability to display gradients. You can save gradients as Styles in the Styles panel, however.
You can import Illustrator ASE swatches files into Fireworks by selecting Add Files from the Fireworks swatches panel menu. and then browsing to their location on your hard drive.
You can make the swatches larger by dragging on the bottom right corner of the swatches panel.
Cool! thank you on the sizes...
however on the gradients, can the styles to added to the swatch panel? What is the best way to always have access to them.
Also, i'm sorry.. one more... where do I go to Manage/Delete saved desktops?
Anything you save as a style will be accessable in the styles panel. Here's how to do it. Add the gradients, effects, colors you want to an object and while it isstill selected, open the styles panel menu and choose New Style. It will be added to the "Current Document" styles. Once that has happened, open the styles panel menu again and choose Save Style Library. Whenever you want to use your custom styles, load them in the panel by choosing Import Style LIbrary from the menu.
You cannot add styles or gradients to the Swatches panel.
To save a desktop, click on the menu button at the top right of the FW GUI and choose Save Current. The only means I know of to delete a desktop is to write over it by saving a new one with the same name as the one you want to delete.
Thank you! You're a genuis!! I appreciate your time!!!
have a great TG
You are very welcome. :-)
