Using Fireworks For Dropdown Menus In Dreamweaver

Greetings;

I've used Fireworks for years to create navigation on websites both with and without dropdown menus. I subsequently use the resulting HTML, images and JavaScript in Dreavweaver (or Visual Studio Pro).

Since many websites today are designed with a responsive model I would like to continue using Fireworks to create my navigation systems. However, I do not see a way to create fluid navigation elements in Fireworks. The elements are static unless I am missing something in Fireworks.

Is Fireworks becoming passe in the light of responsive website models because it only produces static solutions?

Are folks resorting to 3rd party navigation software to create dynamic navigation in Dreamweaver and other software?

Are folks using Dreamweaver CC to create navigation systems?


Much thanks for any help you can provide.

You're not missing anything.  The whole DW/FW ecosystem basically ignored mobile/responsive and between CMS's and javascript frameworks (Angular, node, backbone) the market kind of went in a different direction.

Much obliged, Jason. It is sad Adobe did not anticipate the need to marry these two products for the responsive model.

Thank you for your help.
