Example of cascading, pop-up menu created with Fireworks - click on image to see full size version
For some people, this single new feature could be worth the entire cost of purchase or upgrade. While there are other packages out there, especially shareware ones, most are not as flexible as the tool provided in Fireworks 4.
Novices can produce complex pop-ups without writing ANY code, by using a step-by-step VISUAL environment that assists in creating the menu they desire. Font, size and color of menu entries can easily be chosen, along with rollover colors. Menus can be either table-based HTML or button image files.
The most important point is that multiple levels of submenus can be created and a separate URL can be attached to each menu item.
