We received some feedback on text tool hanging when used inside Fireworks CS4 version. Any extensions which are manipulating text objects are also reporting such a hang or an error message.

The team has investigated the issue and the resolution steps are mentioned below:

  • Quit all the applications that are running.
  • Navigate to “/Applications/Adobe Fireworks CS4/Required/” folder.
  • Rename the file, “GlobalResources” to something like “GlobalResources_original”.
  • Now copy the file from this link at the same location. (essentially we are replacing the old globalresources file with the one I have attached with this mail above)
  • Launch Fireworks CS4 and select the text tool to type something on canvas.

The file to be replaced is hosted here
