View Full Version : dreamweaver /fireworks

Hi, apologies for this very beginner type question!

I used to code in HTML quite happily but now that I have access to the MX suite, I figured that I should try and use it.

I've designed my buttons, background graphic etc infireworks and then all the instructions just say 'export it into firworks'. My problem is that when exporting, it exports it as one whole html page. Is there anyway of exporting (and then subsequently updating) it into a page that already exists?

The reason I ask is becasue what I haev created in Fireworks is just the background - I need to edit the HTML further within DW to get it right. Everytime I 'update HTML' or export it again, it gets rid of anything I've done in DW!

I'm sure this is just a logic thing becasue I'm not use to the software...

any ideas?

Fireworks gives you different options for exporting. One of the options I believe it asks you if this will be for exporting to Dreamweaver. Once you get everything into the page within Dreamweaver when you want to edit it with firework use Dreamweaver to open it with fireworks. When you do that it does not overwrite any changes. The two programs work well together as long as they know they need to work together.
