Macromedia has released an update to Fireworks, bringing the version number to 4.0.2. An updater for 4.0 users is available for download from Macromedia’s Web site.
Fireworks is a software application to help designers to create bitmap and vector graphics optimized for display on the Web. Fireworks also enables users to apply interactive elements to their graphics and then integrate them into Web pages using Dreamweaver or other HTML editing software.
Fireworks 4.0.2 incorporates various changes:
Batch Processing: Scale to Size When batch processing, Scale to Size will work as expected when “Variable” is selected for Width or Height.
Director Launch and Edit: When launching and editing in Fireworks from Director, Fireworks will no longer prompt you to locate a source file.
Pop-up Menu hotspot: Pop-up menus now work as expected when viewed in Internet Explorer 4.0 – 4.5 on Windows.
FreeHand Import: The “Convert Layers to Frames” option will work as expected when importing FreeHand files.
Alien Skin Eye Candy: Help menu problem. Using an Alien Skin Eye Candy plug-in no longer causes items in the Help menu to disappear.
Multiple 3rd party effects: Multiple 3rd party effects applied to an object will now render correctly.
Netscape Navigator 6 HTML support: Fireworks HTML templates have been updated to be compatible with Netscape Navigator 6.
