Its been a few years since I used Freeway.
There used to be an action that I could assign to an image so that I
could actually edit it over in a margin of my document but when it
displayed in the browser it was elsewhere.
Hi Ted, welcome back to Freeway.
I have to admit that I don’t remember any action that did that - but
that doesn’t mean there wasn’t one.
One way you could do this would be to have your ‘master’ image
off-page as before (set to NOT be layered, or it would still be
included in the page output), then simple select and export it to
Use this output as part of your rollover set, and just replace the
original image with your export each time you change and re-export it.
BUT - did you know that you can select items that are stacked beneath
other items quite simply? Just hold down the Apple and the Alt keys
(otherwise known as command-option) and click your way through your
stack. Watch the Inspector palette as you go.
You can also use the ‘array’ view of the Rollover action controls in
the Actions palette to see what item is selected, select different
items, and show the different rollover/click states.
Finally, if you’re using Freeway 5, you can also switch the Site
panel to show just the current page, and see all your page items
listed in their stacking order. Click something in the list to select
it on the page, or command-option-click items in the layout and watch
this list to see what’s selected.
As you try this you’ll see the distinct advantage of naming things
clearly. And this, as a fringe benefit, can help ever so slightly in
search engine ranking.
