Fireworks CS6 New Features

  • Show a few of the new features in CS6
  • This is not a complete list of new features, but they are features you will really apprecaite
  • We will be working with the new CSS properties panel
  • This new CSS properties panel allows you to build things graphically within Fireworks, and FW will create the CSS for that item so you do not need an image for some of your design elements
  • This allows you to modify these items within the design once it is an html page very easily by modifying these CSS properties
  • If these were all images as they used to be, you would have to create new images any time you wanted to change any little aspect of the design
  • New ability to copy color using the eyedropper tool
  • The layers panel now offers thumbnail icons for layers so you can see what the layer contains
  • There is also a new opacity slider for fill & stroke for better control
  • The optimize panel now defaults to PNG 32
  • Native Fireworks files now use the .fw.png file extension so they can differentiated from other PNG formats
  • Text has both stroke & fill options
  • Fireworks CS6 also offers new jQuery mobile features with a new panel & new commands
    • jQuery Mobile theme swatches
    • Ability to easily customize these swatches
