I am versed in exporting all visible layers in Fireworks to separate files. What I would like to is one notch more sophisticated - I'd like to include one or more of these layers in each and every exported layer.

For example, if I had layers like this:

 - Smiley Face
 - Sad Face
 - Shocked Face
 - ...
 - Purple Gradient (<-- common background layer)

I'd like to end up with a set of files that is named for each layer except "Purple Gradient", and I'd like the purple gradient to be visible behind each exported layer.

  • As I'm typing this I'm thinking Fireworks "States" are probably the way to do this - been a while since I touched that feature set. Apr 4 '12 at 21:37
  • Sure enough, states work fine for this sort of thing. I'd still be curious if there were a simpler way to do this - states adds another layer of configuration to do. Apr 5 '12 at 21:22
