I've been using Fireworks CS5 and just moved to Lion. I find that on every launch, FW opens all the files that I was using in my last session. Is there any way to turn this off? I've checked the Preferences and Google also the forums on help.adobe.com. any clues?
I'm currently reviewing best/most efficient tools for a large UX production environment and would be interested in hearing experiences from other UXers who have been down this well worn path before.
The ideal solution for me would be one single tool that:
1. Generates greyscale wires (with a good widget library) 2. Outputs them in semi decent html for testing 3. Lets designers work out of the same file so they can switch out elements 4. Has a built in team review tool
I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows. Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes. And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application. But the two remain largely separated.
After reading through Zaki Warfel's Prototyping, I hoped it would shed light on the most effective techniques. It was a very good read and included some invaluable insights on progressively iterating from paper models to high fidelity designs. It's led me to make some assertions about prototyping tools...
I was wondering if anyone has extensive experience with specifically the new Interactive features of InDesign CS5. I am an avid Fireworks user, but I was recently informed that InDesign, in this latest release may be the application to beat. I have played around and found the new object states, animation (presets only) e.t.c in the Interactive section interesting.
For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.
