[Pro] FWP 7 and macOS 10.13 issue

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your feedback. One way around this is to import the graphic into an HTML box - in which case it will default to being pass-through.

I applied the update, but it hasn’t improved the import dialog problem, which if you want to import pass-through images (for responsive work) is necessary as the check boxes vanish!

Sadly not fixed here with 10.13.1.

There will be good news in the future. Can’t say any more because of NDA.

hey all… just to add to the Sierra discussion…
I have MacBook Pro / touch bar with Sierra installed…and not one problem here on the FW build.
I am postponing upgrading to High Sierra until Im sure FW is in working order…

Carla, you can always use Sierra in a VM within High Sierra - like I and others do - as a temporary solution.

Hi there,
can someone tell me perhaps if in earlier versions of FW (5 +6) the import function is broken too in High Sierra? I still have a few old websites of clients who never liked to change/upgrade to 7. Most of these websites are in FW 6. Little changes are still possible in Sierra without any problems.

Same here, a few old sites that are still updated under FW 5 & 6. Sadly, the issue remains under High Sierra 10.13.1 for FW 5, 6, and 7. Fortunately for me, those older sites don’t usually get more than a few tweaks so I probably won’t run into this issue with them.

Sadly, no fix in the release build of 10.13.2 either.

Yeah, I just upgraded my iMac to 10.13(.1) and 10.13.2 was available just after I rebooted. But the fix wasn’t there. I sure hope Apple does ship one, though.

That is sad after your earlier hint.

Can someone remind me: the main problem is that some people who are using 10.13 find that the pass-through checkbox is disabled in the Import dialog?

I think there are two ways around this:

Import graphics into an HTML box (with a green or blue outline) rather than a graphic box (with a grey outline). If you do this, the graphics will default to being pass-through.

Hold down the Option key while dragging a graphic into a box (it will default to being pass-through)

I’m still hopeful!

The problem is that all import options are gone from the dialogue box. There is just an empty grey box where the options should be.

Is it possible to post images here?

I can see an image the Gordon Low posted on 28th September.

I think there are workaround for the other options as well. Except Show, probably.

Upload the image anywhere public, and link to it. You could make a scratch page in a Freeway document, and not link it to any of the pages in your site, then just drag the picture there and upload your site. To post a real image link here, you use Markdown syntax, which looks like this:
