Changing the tab name in Fireworks

Posted on 2009-12-22
Last Modified: 2013-12-13
In the tab of my open png and jpg files in Fireworks it says:
filename.png: Page 1 100% in Site "Site Name"

The file is NOT in that site and Fireworks always says the same site (which I last worked on a few years ago).

How do I change that?

    It sounds like you have a corrupted preference file. It is very common for this to get out of whack, and is fairly easy to fix.

    Fireworks actually has several preference files, and it's impossible for me to tell you which one is corrupt.

    You don't mention which version of Fireworks you have, or what operating system you are using, so here is a link that covers the Fireworks pref files in general.

    In short, you want to erase the bad file, and restart Fireworks. Your program will rebuild the pref file with the default settings which you can them customize to suit.

    I was looking for the configuration file and did check the link...What is the name of the file?
    I am running Fireworks CS4 and Windows XP.

    It is named Fireworks (version) Preferences.txt (Windows) or Fireworks (version) Preferences (Macintosh).

    For instance, if you have Fireworks CS4 on Windows, the pref would be named Fireworks CS4 Preferences.txt

    Sorry, but it sounds like a call to Adobe tech support. You get two free calls with each licensed copy or upgrade and most folks never use them. Besides, they're usually very good about responding to "my program is not acting right" problems without charge. (At least, that has always been my experience)

    It's the "I'm too lazy to read the help file" questions that get charged.

    If you don't want to endure the long phone wait, you can question them by email, but sometimes technical questions take a long time to solve because of the number of emails that have to go back and forth to get to a solution.
