hello, just registered to the forum.
i picked up an older computer with dw4 on it and i've been trying to learn how to use it. one of the problems i ran across was whenever i deleted an image or text on one of my pages, it automaticly takes me to the top of the page. i'm guessing there's a button that is checked and it shouldn't be. can someone point me in the right direction???
thanks in advance, eric

No button or checkbox for that. Did you get the CD's as well? You might consider reinstalling the software. Doesn't sound like much of a problem, but I guess if you have *really* long pages, it might be.
Welcome to the forums btw!

hello, thanks for the quick reply. i did not get the cd, and yes, my pages are a little long. i have another question. i'm trying to make it look like one of my drawings is slowing burning and the ashes are falling into a pile on the floor. what would be the best program to make something like that happen???
thanks again,
eric

Adobe Flash, but you need some animation experience to pull that one off.

so is adobe flash (with a spritz of animation exp. i don't have) going to take as long to learn as photoshop & dw, or should i hire someone to create the crazy things i see in my head???

im thinking that would be the best idea. They very in depth programs to learn individually. Im a front end developer (xhtml, css, js, dhtml) at work and i have been trying to learn php too. Im can do enuf in photoshop, imageready and flash mx wen i have to... but its taken me 2 years to get to that. Although wen i do freelance its thru a friend who runs his own graphic design business by himself so he always does kick ass designs for me (latest one in progress is www.redro.com.au/vg/homepage.php (http://www.redro.com.au/vg/homepage.php) - things will become flash wen i get back from hols)

Anyways, it depends i guess if you have the time to learn, coz anything is possible wen u put the dedication to it.

Are you planning on doing this is a profession? or just on the side?

Welcome to the forum btw too
