I'm using Lightshow Magic on a Mac OSX computer and the Build Mode "Automatic Using Fireworks" option is grayed out (disabled) or is not functioning correctly. Is there a fix for this?
The "Automatic From Fireworks" mode is enabled only if Dreamweaver reports that it can connect to Fireworks properly. The Fireworks/Dreamweaver communication issue sometimes comes up on Mac OSX computers that have had more than 1 version of Dreamweaver installed, including a "dot" release update such as 8.0 to 8.02.
This is an Apple/Adobe bug but can be avoided or fixed by ensuring that Fireworks is properly set up as the default image editor in Dreamweaver Preferences and by cleaning permissions before and after installing or updating Dreamweaver and/or Fireworks.
You can use Tiger (or later) Cache Cleaner to clean up your permissions. Make sure to perform a deep clean
