    How do you turn on Smart Guides? I have CS3 Fireworks. I have turned on the guides: View > Guides > Show Guides, but I don’t have an option of Show Smart Guides — is a difference work space?

  • Shingo Arase says:

    I was excited about FW CS4 and installed immediately according to instructions. But I can not open the CS4 file. “Could not launch FW. An internal error occurred.” I do have FW CS3. I called the Adobe, they say we do not support the beta. What did I wrong?

  • Sarthak Singhal says:

    The Smart Guides feature is available only in Fireworks CS4 beta and is not present in any previous versions of Fireworks
