Welcome to Adobe® Fireworks® CS5.1. This document contains known issues and troubleshooting tips not covered in the Fireworks documentation.
See Adobe Support for late-breaking information and known issues for all Creative Suite 5 applications.
To support the display of all characters of the Chinese standard GB18030 on Windows XP systems, Adobe recommends the installation of the Microsoft GB18030 Support Package. This support package updates an XP system with, among other things, fonts and input-method-editors (IMEs) to correctly support GB18030. The support package is available as a download from the Microsoft website. (#BG061690)
On Windows XP (Simplified Chinese), because the application’s default Chinese font is SimSun, 4-byte GB18030 characters aren’t displayed correctly. As a workaround, use the two scripts provided with Fireworks CS4 installer (SetNewUIFont and ClearNewUIFont) for GB18030 standard support. These two scripts are installed at the following location: [drive:]/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Fireworks CS4/Simplified Chinese/.
To set the user interface font to enable 4-byte GB18030 characters, do the following:
Note: Restart Windows after running these scripts.
- Fireworks CS4 does not display 4-byte characters in the document tab’s title on Windows XP. As a workaround, name the titles with ASCII or 2-byte Chinese characters.
- On Windows XP and Vista, some 2-byte and all 4-byte characters aren't correctly pasted to Illustrator when you use the Copy Path Outlines feature in Fireworks.
- On Windows XP and Vista, some 2-byte and all 4-byte characters aren't displayed correctly in the Create Slideshow dialog when entered from the keyboard.
- On Windows XP, some 2-byte and all 4-byte characters sometimes aren't displayed correctly in the HTML Slice on the canvas.
