If I import a psd file with smart layers into Fireworks, is it possible to edit one of those smart layers the same way you would be able to in Photoshop?

Have you tried? – Scott Dec 12 '12 at 22:25
Yes, when you double-click the layer it doesn't open up a new window with the isolated layer as it does in Ps. – mnort9 Dec 12 '12 at 22:28
Doesn't that answer your question? Fireworks lacks the code structure to edit Smart Objects. – Scott Dec 12 '12 at 22:34
There are a lots of things in Photoshop that Fireworks can also do, but require different user actions to complete – mnort9 Dec 12 '12 at 22:38

I don't understand why you even need to do this. Do your editing in Photoshop then go to Fireworks. K.I.S.S.

Not everyone has Photoshop installed. If you receive a file created in Photoshop and you only have Fireworks, this solution doesn't really work. – Dan Sep 24 '14 at 18:39
