I have just upgraded from Express to Pro 7 and am going through the Extended Reference for FW7. I have to add that it is many years since I built my crude little web site with FW Express, so I have to re-learn FW from scratch, not only the new achievements.
Some of my first experiences:
When I open FW7, either a blank template or the supplied ‘Clouds’, and go to the Help menu, I am directed to the Mac Help! However, if memory serves me, the first time I tried, I came to an FW fly-out menu, which let me directly open items in FW. Some prefs seem to be corrupted. What can I do? Mac OS 10.11.6
A note on terminology: Reference p 2, left column near bottom:
“…choose Center in the Align popup in the Inspectors General Settings tab…”
It took me some time to find this ‘popup’. I am not a native speaker of English, but a long time Mac user, and I think this kind of thing is normally called a drop-down menu: you click it, or a disclosure triangle at left, and it reveals its menu items, of which then you can choose one. A popup, otoh, is something that pops up when you mouse over an item, normally an explanative text. Like those over the icons in the top bar of the Inspector window.
Reference p 8: The Responsive section: I am unable to find that menu. An ‘Actions’ item appears in various menus. Maybe this is the panel evoked by Window > Actions. Maybe in my case it was empty because the page was empty. But when I open the ‘Clouds’ template and select one of the Master Pages, the Actions panel shows a tab 'Auto Clearfix (FW 7)'and 2 menu items: ‘Enable’ and ‘Apply to all unfloated elements?’. No disclosure triangle. Can you guide me to that menu?
Best regards - Hening
