Fireworks feedback: HTML and CSS export

Thank you for the feedback on feature requirements for Fireworks CS next version. There have been many big feature requests, enhancements and workflow improvements.

We understand it as a positive feedback as the Fireworks community believes in the team to make it an even better application with every new release. One feature which stood out from all the feedback was improvements in HTML and CSS export. Currently Fireworks is equipped to export code in a table format and Fireworks CS3 release introduced the export of CSS along with HTML.

  1. What are the specific areas you would like to see worked upon?
  2. Would you like Fireworks generating code which can be used for direct deployment to web hosts?
  3. What are your thoughts on the whole buzz of HTML5 and CSS3 code generation?
  4. Would you like to create a widget, skin it and get the CSS1/2/3 code available for use in some app like Dreamweaver

We are looking for very specific workflow and feature feedback for deeper analysis and investigations by the team.Share on Facebook

Next version of Fireworks CS5 requirements?

It has been a while since Fireworks CS5 was launched. We are trying to understand the use of the release and know your feedback.

If there are only 5 things that could be improved or enhanced in the current version, what would be your priority?  You could mention a feature request, bug fix, workflow enhancement or any other change which will make you happier than ever before.

We are listening and looking for your feedback. Please prioritize your 5 asks to help us focus better. Thanks in advance.Share on Facebook
