    Fireworks.... Or my computer???!!?

    Check this screenshot out...

    http://www.ocmotorcars.com/screen1.gif

    When i try to write text, it highlights the text the color i choose... I cannot figure out how to fix it. I reformated 2 days ago, then i installed fireworks, and its doing that. I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it, same thing...

    Any ideas??!?!

    It must be your computer, graphics driver or something like that; Fireworks doesn't highlight text (at least, I never find how to do it)
    Don't resist to assimilation. Billions of Borgs can't be wrong!

    1. Go to download.com and get BCM Diagnostics (Free)
    2. Run Memory test
    3. Replace bad memory (if any)

    This procedure fixed my fireworks.

    *In godfather voice* It was my memory all along

    nickbarresi, I downloaded the program, but I cannot figure it out...

    Excuse me if this question is easy or basic, I really dont know much about computers, all I know is web design

    but how do you run a memory test?

    then would it automaticly replace bad memory?

    Thanks!

    do other programs have the same issue ???

    its really unlikely to be hardware related.

    go into /program files/macromedia/fireworks and look for the Fireworks $version Preferences.txt and delete it (make sure fireworks is already closed !)

    then restart fireworks - you never know its worth a shot.
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    If you open the BCM diagnostics folder there should be a "Memory Test" icon, just double click it, and let it do it's magic.

    If it finds any errors, your best bet is to take it to a computer store and get the bad memory replaced, unless you know how to do this yourself.

    I'm not saying memory is your problem, but it could be. Like I said, with mine I kept getting strange errors in Fireworks, now after replacing bad memory it runs like a dream

    You may want to go to the forums at macromedia.com and search for any threads pertaining to your problem.

    Does your PC run 'choppy', or sluggish?

    No CRASH_OVERRIDE, it doesnt run sluggish... I guess I am going to reformat again... Thats all I can do right now... Before I reformated the other day, I never had that problem...

    Well, thanks for your help anyways.
