problem importing fireworks buttons into flash

  I'm sure someone has a quick answer to this for me.  I have a few buttons created in fireworks that i would like to import into flash.  i would really like to keep the functionality and the look as i used a custom metallic style in fireworks.  i have two problems, when i import it and select import options to keep it editable, i lose my metallic style look.  Also, if i import, but without allowing it to be editable, i lose the ability to have the down state stick after click.  i guess my question is, how do i import the buttons, keep the look and have full functionality so that i may utilize the features of the button? Thanks.

in fireworks select your "button" and right the option to "covenrt to symbol" and select button.
double click and setup layers and what it will work like in that fashion

Then in flash import to library, raterize layers is necessary and import as movie clip. Then use the button in your library in flash. Works for me...
