graphics don't show correctly in browser

Hello…I have added a tiled image to my page selected from the inspector. I then added several graphics images that I want to use along the top of the page. All goes well except that when I preview the graphics I have grouped together do not expand to the width of the Safari window. I am using an iMac so the display is 1440x900. I am baffled why this is. I have taken off CSS tried locking the group, and everything else I can think of and still no joy. Let me know where I might post a couple screen grabs to illustrate what I am experiencing.

Thanks,

Mel

If they are on the FW “page” then that is where they will stay because the “page” you defined in FW will have a fixed size of ?px unless you built it to stretch.

This page has overlapping graphics that will “stretch” to fit larger browser windows.

Sounds like the old background image confusion issue. First off, the work area you see when in Freeway is not the whole browser window area, only the page area. So, If you apply a background image without having anything else on your page will give you a tiled image that fills the window.

Adding a page background (not the same thing) will only apply a background to the “page” area. Whatever is set as background from above explanation will be behind this.

Does that make sense?

So how do I tell it to use 100 percent versus the specified pixel width? I would have assumed since the tiled background stretches then also anything on top of this would as well. Is there a tutorial somewhere that explains how to avoid this?

since the tiled background stretches

Key word in here is tiled - meaning repeating in either horizontal or vertical directions.

anything on top of this would as well

A background image is purely that - in the background and is unaffected by anything on the actual page - you could create a background image incorporating “several graphics images that I want to use along the top of the page” but I reckon you dont want these images on all the pages.

You can (in Pro) use % percentages to position items on the page.

In the inspector where you would put ?px (under dimensions) for positioning try using 10%, 20% etc and see what happens when viewed in the browser.
