View Full Version : importing fireworks HTML

Hi I'm having problems importing fireworks HTML into my page. It looks like none of the slices are copying over or they cant be found.

These are the steps I followed.

First created the rollover buttons in fireworks. Each text element of the image is an individual button, as depicted...


Then I exported the image with slices, saving as HTML and images

Then selected where I wanted it to go in dreamweaver. Did insert --> image objects --> fireworks html.

Located the htm fireworks file, and was then prompted 'some referenced files are outside of the root..........copy these files to site?' which I clicked okay. Then got prompted again, saying 'some files being copied already exist........do you want to replace the existing files?' which I clicked okay for as well.

The result is shown below


and the result from the browser preview


as you can see none of my slices are showing up in dreamweaver

Might anyone know how to fix this or what might be the problem? I have followed a tutorial on how to do it, and this was the result.

When you save the images from fireworks, save it to your imagesfolder in your DW site. If you can circumvent the whole 'import' issue, you probably won't have this problem.

If you don't save them to Dreamweaver, then you have to actually put them in as if an image. click on one of the grey slices, and then in the prop. mgr. go to the local folder that you saved that slice in, and hit open. It should put your slice in. Repeat with the rest(like a puzzle):)
