Guides on emulating older applications

Adobe® Fireworks® CS4 (formerly Macromedia Fireworks) delivers an efficient design environment for rapidly prototyping websites and user interfaces, and for creating and optimizing images for the web.

Fireworks offers the flexibility to edit both vector and bitmap images, a common library of prebuilt assets, and time-saving integration with Adobe Photoshop®, Adobe Illustrator®, Adobe Dreamweaver®, and Adobe Flash® Professional software, building on existing integration with Macromedia FreeHand MX files bearing the .FH11 extension.

9-Slice Scaling tool
The 9-Slice Scaling tool provides you with a way to quickly scale an object without any distortion. Improved from Fireworks CS3, the tool is no longer restricted to symbols. Simply define nine areas of any given object, where the four corners will not be changed when an object is scaled or stretched. Ideal for buttons, designs with rounded corners, and preserving borders.

Path Panel
The path panel shows the various vector editing options available in Adobe Fireworks CS4. It brings to the table greatly improved and enhanced tools for combining, altering, editing, and selecting paths in vector shapes -- A big jump from Fireworks 8 and CS3. Check out interesting options like path extrusion, path blending, fisheye, deform to path, invert shape, Extrude Paths, blend paths, etc.

Pages Panel
Adobe Fireworks CS4 introduces the concept of pages where now a document can be considered as a project consisting of one or more of pages. You can create, delete, sort and rename the pages. Each page can be given unique settings for canvas size, canvas color, image resolution and guides. One of the pages can be set as the Master Page. The Master Page of a document can be used to hold all common elements of the website's design such as the header, footer and navigation.

Smart Guides and Tooltips
There is no need now to frequently look at the property inspector when positioning objects. When you drag an object nearer to another object, the smart guides display dashed lines, helping you to easily align objects to the nearest edge of another object. Tooltips give you the width, height, and origin of a vector object in real time.

CSS and PDF Export
Fireworks CS4 adds new export options. You can now design CSS-based layouts in Fireworks and then convert them to well coded CSS programmed HTML pages. In Adobe Fireworks CS4, you can also export a Fireworks document as a single PDF file. The PDF Export is helpful to show your website to the clients before converting it to html or CSS.

Though Fireworks has been discontinued by Adobe since May 2013, and Adobe has informed all previous customers that their licenses have been withdrawn, activation servers for Fireworks CS4 should still be online at the time in which this was uploaded (Oct 2018).

It's the same serial number that I was given and once tested. Likely that the Adobe licensing server rejected it, and as some of us had suspected, the CS4 licensing servers are still online and validating away.

You might want to consider trying Fireworks MX 2004 instead, which you can find in Macromedia Studio MX 2004.

It's a better product than the CS3 and CS4 releases. Still made by the old Altsys Corporation team that was behind FreeHand and Fontographer before they were all laid off and Fireworks was given to Adobe India.

The only disadvantage is that Fireworks MX and MX 2004 were PowerPC apps, never released as Universal Binaries. They should still be plenty fast for your Intel Mac, compared to the very slow Fireworks CS4.
