[Pro] 1st steps into FW7

FW forum

Hi

I have just upgraded from Express to Pro 7 and am going through the Extended Reference for FW7. I have to add that it is many years since I built my crude little web site with FW Express, so I have to re-learn FW from scratch, not only the new achievements.

Some of my first experiences: 1- When I open FW7, either a blank template or the supplied ‘Clouds’, and go to the Help menu, I am directed to the Mac Help! However, if memory serves me, the first time I tried, I came to an FW fly-out menu, which let me directly open items in FW. Some prefs seem to be corrupted. What can I do? Mac OS 10.11.6

2- A note on terminology: Reference p 2, left column near bottom: “…choose Center in the Align popup in the Inspectors General Settings tab…” It took me some time to find this ‘popup’. I am not a native speaker of English, but a long time Mac user, and I think this kind of thing is normally called a drop-down menu: you click it, or a disclosure triangle at left, and it reveals its menu items, of which then you can choose one. A popup, otoh, is something that pops up when you mouse over an item, normally an explanative text. Like those over the icons in the top bar of the Inspector window.

3- Reference p 8: The Responsive section: I am unable to find that menu. An ‘Actions’ item appears in various menus. Maybe this is the panel evoked by Window > Actions. Maybe in my case it was empty because the page was empty. But when I open the ‘Clouds’ template and select one of the Master Pages, the Actions panel shows a tab ‘Auto Clearfix (FW 7)’and 2 menu items: ‘Enable’ and ‘Apply to all unfloated elements?’. No disclosure triangle. Can you guide me to that menu?

Best regards - Hening

Hi Hening

You should see a search field followed by some Freeway shortcuts (“Welcome to Freeway” etc.). There aren’t any preferences for the Help menu, so I don’t think your preferences are corrupted.

2- A note on terminology: Reference p 2, left column near bottom: “…choose Center in the Align popup in the Inspectors General Settings tab…” It took me some time to find this ‘popup’. I am not a native speaker of English, but a long time Mac user, and I think this kind of thing is normally called a drop-down menu: you click it, or a disclosure triangle at left, and it reveals its menu items, of which then you can choose one. A popup, otoh, is something that pops up when you mouse over an item, normally an explanative text. Like those over the icons in the top bar of the Inspector window.

A drop-down menu is one that drops down (like menus in the menu bar). This menu really is called a popup menu (and the control that displays it is known as a popup button) because it pops up. We’re using “popup” as an abbreviation of “popup menu” or “popup button” but there could be other kinds of popups, as you describe.

3- Reference p 8: The Responsive section: I am unable to find that menu. An ‘Actions’ item appears in various menus. Maybe this is the panel evoked by Window > Actions. Maybe in my case it was empty because the page was empty. But when I open the ‘Clouds’ template and select one of the Master Pages, the Actions panel shows a tab ‘Auto Clearfix (FW 7)’and 2 menu items: ‘Enable’ and ‘Apply to all unfloated elements?’. No disclosure triangle. Can you guide me to that menu?

The “Responsive” section is part of the UI for the CSS Menus Action. The Actions palette (which you’ve found in the Windows menu) is contextual: it displays settings for Actions that are applied to the currently selected page or item. If you select an item that uses the CSS Menus Action, you should see this section near the bottom of the palette.

Concerning the Help menu:

Yes I do. But if I enter anything in the search field, the Freeway shortcuts are replaced by entries in the Apple Mac Help. Eg if I enter ‘pass through’, the first entry says ‘Trace the paths of your network traffic’, and the title bar of the new window that opens says ‘Mac Help’.

I think that’s just the way that the Help menu works, in Freeway and in other programs. The Search part of this menu belongs to macOS rather than Freeway. If you type here, macOS will look for matching menu items (in Freeway) or for matching help topics that are in Apple Help format. Freeway’s documentation is in PDF format (rather than Apple Help format), so the Help menu doesn’t find topics there - but you can open the documentation and search for phrases. To find out about pass-through (passthrough) graphics, search for “passthrough”.

My first page

1- In the master page, I have set the Default page size to 1200x980 px. That is about the pixel count of my 19” sreen. Then, when I choose the start page and choose ‘Use master settings’ in the page panel, a frame is shown that shows these borders. But beyond them there is a stripe of about 80 px at right and about 45 px at bottom, that also shows the background color I have chosen for the page.

If I select one of the items on the page and move it a little, that frame snaps to the outside of that larger area.

Both the master and the page show the same numbers in the Measurement panel.

What is this?

And also, if I deselect ‘Use master settings’ again, the frame does not go away again. ?

2- The page contains 2 text fields, and an image as pass-through graphic. When I set the Width and Height of that graphic to ‘Fixed’, it is just that: If I open it in a browser and diminish the window, the image is cut at right. If otoh I set the size to ‘Fixed %’, it scales with the browser window - but also with that windows aspect ratio. The latter is not the meaning. Is there a way to avoid this and still have the image adapt to the browser size?

To try that, I set the size to ‘Flexible’. The image was downsized to about 1/2, and the box frame shrunk to the new size. And it stays that way also after I set the size to ‘Fixed’ again. Even after I deleted the content, enlarged the box, set the Measurements to ‘Fixed’ again and re-imported the image. The Measurement snapped to ‘Flexible again. (How) can I revert that? And what is going on here?

3- If I import the image as pass-through graphic, FW forces me to ignore the resolution. In the Import dialog, the resolution is reduced from 176 to 169 ppi. Well, no big deal. But why?

But beyond them there is a stripe of about 80 px at right and about 45 px at bottom, that also shows the background color I have chosen for the page.

There is an area known as the “pasteboard” that is outside the page area. This displays the background colour you’ve chosen for the window (“window background”).

If I select one of the items on the page and move it a little, that frame snaps to the outside of that larger area.

There are some options in “Preferences/Grids & Guides” that control the magnetic (snapping) range of grids and guides. Do you have a grid or some guides on the page?

And also, if I deselect ‘Use master settings’ again, the frame does not go away again. ?

Items are part of the page’s content, so they’re affected by Use Master Content rather than Use Master Settings. However, turning Use Master Content off won’t automatically remove items that come from the master page.

The page contains 2 text fields, and an image as pass-through graphic. When I set the Width and Height of that graphic to ‘Fixed’, it is just that: If I open it in a browser and diminish the window, the image is cut at right.

Is there a way to avoid this and still have the image adapt to the browser size?

If you want an image to keep its aspect ratio when the window is resized, what you need to do is to set the width of the image to be a percentage value, but leave the height undefined. If you define both, both will scale with the window size. If you only define the width, the width will scale with the window width and the height will scale with the width.

If I import the image as pass-through graphic, FW forces me to ignore the resolution. In the Import dialog, the resolution is reduced from 176 to 169 ppi. Well, no big deal. But why?

“Ignore Resolution” really means “display the image as if it is a screen-resolution image” (ignoring any resolution that is stored in the image). With non-passthrough images, Freeway normally takes the resolution into account, so that a 300x300 dpi image will be the same screen size as a 72x72 dpi image (1 inch square).

Does the Import dialog display resolution somewhere? The figure next to the “Pass-through” checkbox is the file size rather than the resolution.

I’ll focus on the image size for now.

Hm. How can I do that? In the Measurement pane, the choices are Fixed-Fixed%-Flexible-Minimum-Minimum%-Stretchy. No Undefined. In the Dimensions pane, there is a Height field, which seems to show the current value. If I clear it, then close and re-open the pane, it has snapped back to that same value. ??

In the Measurements pane, “Flexible” is the same as undefined. Items with undefined height grow or shrink (flexibly) to fit their content.

In the Dimensions pane, a dimension is undefined if the button next to the field is unselected. The field shows the actual height (as displayed within Freeway) but you can’t edit this value - it’s greyed out to show that it’s really undefined.

If you want to centre an image horizontally, the best way to do that is to use an inline image and set the text alignment (in the Text panel of the Inspector palette) to be centred.

Oh I just see this should be possible to do by using frames. I’ll have to study that in more detail.

Don’t use frames (Frames option at the bottom of the Page menu). They’re an old HTML feature that has been more or less discarded. I think the reason they still exist in Freeway is as a legacy feature.

iframes are OK, and I don’t think there are any problems using the iFrame Action with Freeway 7 (see Walter’s comment there).

And would iFrames indeed enable me to do what I want?

I wouldn’t personally use iframes as a layout tool. There are easy ways to centre content horizontally. Do you also need to centre vertically?

Not sure yet if that is as necessary as horizontally. I could image it might result in fields overlapping each other. But if that can be avoided, it sounds like it would be nice, too.

Please tell me.

  1. Inflow box: insert an HTML box at a text cursor and choose “Center” from the Align popup in the Measurements section.

  2. Inline image: insert a graphic at a text cursor and choose the Center Align button in the Paragraph section of the Text pane of the Inspector palette.

The Reference shows no returns when searched for ‘centre’.

Freeway and its documentation are localised in American English - you need to search for “center” rather than “centre”.

How can I do that? It sounds like I need a text cursor on the page background directly. The only way in which I can see a text cursor is inside an HTML box. So I would need an HTML field that covers the whole page? But even if I make such one, then draw a new (HTML) item in the top left corner (at the text cursor), there is no Center command in the Align menu. There is one called Middle, but regardless which one I choose, the new box does not move inside the first one. I can’t find anything about this in the 28 pages that the search for ‘center’ returns in the Reference.

You can double-click the page itself, which gives you a text cursor inside the page itself. However, this is the first step toward building a fully inline layout, and if you already have a lot of content on the page, it will be a learning curve and a bit of work in order to get the existing replicated in an inline setting.

If you already have a number of positioned (not inline) elements on the page, getting them to respect the elements that you add to the page itself as inline children will require you to make those positioned elements also inline. Imagine the stacked panes of glass in an animation stand, such as the ones used at Disney to make cartoons. (Well, they use computers now, but imagine nonetheless.) The inline elements are all together in the bottom-most layer. Any positioned elements you add above that are each on their own pane of glass, and no matter how they move, they will never bump into or displace any other elements on the page.

The benefit to a fully inline page is that you can make it rearrange naturally when the browser window is resized, or when the font size is changed by the user to accommodate their vision.

there is no Center command in the Align menu

If you insert an inflow HTML box after a text cursor - either directly on the page (as Walter noted) or in another box - you should see an Align menu in the Measurements section. This contains the following options: None, Left, Center, Right, Float Left, and Float Right.

There is one called Middle

In that case you’re looking at an inline graphic rather than an inflow HTML box. Graphic boxes and HTML boxes behave differently (in CSS and in Freeway). The essential difference is that graphic boxes (including pass-through graphic boxes) can be placed inline with other text (e.g. embedded in paragraphs), while HTML boxes cannot be on the same line as other text - although they can stand on their own line as part of the text flow.

If you want to centre an inline graphic, you can use the other technique I mentioned earlier: click immediately after the graphic (to get a text cursor) and select the “Center Align Paragraph” button in the Paragraph section of the Inspector palette.

I was a little confused about the terminology of inflow and inline design. So I read the appendix 1 on layout options, and as far as I can figure out, what I need is the one you call “percentage based inflow layout”. So I started going through the tutorial for that. Here are my firs steps and some questions/remarks:

p227 last but one paragraph:

“In the browser window you will see…” Hm-at this point of the tutorial, no page has been created, and the master is not displayed in the browser.

p228 start

After I created a page, added some text in the Header and centered it using the space bar, what I see in the browser ist that the Header fills the whole width, but the text is not centered. So it looks like I have to make the container field the approximate width of the text (if that is smaller than the design width). Or have I overlooked something?

Concerning the styling of text: I added a font to the Font List, where it appears as Font Set 1. Later I tried to give it its name (Bradley Hand). I could not find an option to re-name or delete a font from the list, so I chose New again, this time entering the name. While the dialog was open, I changed the default Font Set 3 to 1. In the list, it appears again as Font Set 1, but no name. - Is there a way to remove and/or re-name custom fonts from the list? And what do I need to do to enter a font and have it displayed with its name?

p228

“Because there is some content inside […] After that, click in the Height field in the Inspector’s Measurements panel and enter 1000px for both of the inserted HTML items …”

The Measurements panel does not offer a choice of entering figures. The Dimensions panel does. And there are 3 choices. The respective popups call them ‘Minimum height’, ‘Height’ and ‘Maximum height’. Hoping to hit the intention of the tutorial, I enter 600px in the middle field.

“…before previewing in a browser to see it all looks a lot more like a proper web page.”

No it doesn’t. The height-enlarged items (leftpanel and rigthpanel) are placed unter the footer, extending upward through the footer into 1/2 of the height of a space between header and footer. It is this space which has the color given to the page-wrapper, but only the lateral parts, not the space between the panels.

“Test the percentage widths set on the pagebodycontainer, leftpanel and rightpanel items to see that as you change the width of the browser window the items change in relation to each other.”

Yes they do.

Maybe it’s time for a break, looking forward to your corrections of my endeavour.

Also, I’d like your verbose definition of ‘Measurements’ and ‘Dimensions’ in this context.

And a merry Christmas!

I can’t comment on the guide, I’ve never read it. But I can (hopefully) make the distinction below a little clearer.

In the Measurements segment of the Item Inspector, you can change the units that are used when positioning an element (or adjusting another aspect of how it is measured). But within that same area, you will see absolute measurements in pixels based upon the Freeway design board. Below, in the Dimensions segment, you will see that the measurements are translated into the actual unit+relative distance that you’ve created using the Measurements segment.

Quick example:

  1. Draw an HTML box on the page somewhere. (Absolute positioning.)
  2. In the Measurements segment, make note of the L (left) and T (top) dimensions, which indicate how far this HTML box is from top-left of the Freeway layout. Note that the same values are repeated in the Position section of the Dimensions segment.
  3. In the Measurements segment, change the H. Align from Left to Left %.
  4. Note the change in the Dimensions segment. The absolute measurement is translated into a percentage. Now if the page size changes, the left side of the box will be positioned the same relative distance (but further or closer to the left, depending on the direction of change.

This example would not result in any measurable change unless the width of the page was set to Flexible or Min/Max. Otherwise, Freeway will set the page (what every relative element is measured by) to a static dimension, and the fact that elements were relatively (percentage-based) positions from one side or the other would not result in any change when the browser dimensions changed.

Thank you, Walter! That might look like Measurements are measurements, whereas Dimensions are the position of the item on the page. But the Dimensions pane also contains a sub-heading Size. How does that differ from Measurements ? Under this sub-heading, the Width field shows the same value as the W field in Measurements, and bot the Height and Minimum Height fields show the same value as the H field in the Measurements panel.

landshape.net

23 Dec 2018, 5:27 pm

Both position and size can be set to percentage widths, so that’s why they are both listed there. My example was using position as the thing that changed, but you can apply the same logic to the size of an object as well, in the same manner.

A percentage-sized object will always occupy the same relative area on the page, regardless of the viewport and overall page height.

It’s usual to set the height of an object to “shrink” to its contents, but there are cases where you would want to use a percentage height, too. Remember that if you have defined a percentage height, and the contents (text) grow because the font-size has been raised by the user (for readability, for example) then the contents can overflow the box. Setting the height to Flexible (which actually removes the height attribute altogether) allows the box to shrink OR grow to fit its contents.

The Measurements section and the Dimensions section are just alternative ways of setting measurements. The basic difference is that the Measurements section is simplified and always displays values as pixels (even if they’re being output as percentages or something different). The Dimensions section shows the actual units that are being output.

When you create a new document it automatically contains a page and a master page. At this stage in the tutorial, the page should contain all the items that you added on the master page, and if you preview in a browser you should see that page displayed. (That’s what happens for me.)

p228 start

After I created a page, added some text in the Header and centered it using the space bar, what I see in the browser ist that the Header fills the whole width, but the text is not centered. So it looks like I have to make the container field the approximate width of the text (if that is smaller than the design width). Or have I overlooked something?

Don’t use the space bar to centre text, in Freeway or anywhere else. It’s a particularly bad idea in Freeway, because when the text is displayed in a browser consecutive spaces will be collapsed into a single space.

To centre text, click on the “Center Align Paragraph” button in the Paragraph section of the Inspector palette.

To centre an inflow item, you can give it auto left/right margins (as the tutorial suggests) or you can just click on the “Center” option in the Align popup - which does this for you.

Concerning the styling of text: I added a font to the Font List, where it appears as Font Set 1. Later I tried to give it its name (Bradley Hand). I could not find an option to re-name or delete a font from the list, so I chose New again, this time entering the name. While the dialog was open, I changed the default Font Set 3 to 1.

And what do I need to do to enter a font and have it displayed with its name?

Edit Font Sets (Edit menu) will let you change the name of a font set. Double-click on a name to edit it. Clicking on the minus button will remove a font from the list.

p228

“Because there is some content inside […] After that, click in the Height field in the Inspector’s Measurements panel and enter 1000px for both of the inserted HTML items …”

The Measurements panel does not offer a choice of entering figures.

There are two fields (“W” and “H”) which let you enter a width and a height. The Height popup (in the Measurements section) defaults to Minimum - meaning that the figure you enter here is a minimum height. An item that has a minimum height can grow taller to fit its content.

For inflow layout, where you want items to grow and shrink to match the screen size, it’s a good idea to use flexible or percentage measurements.

  1. Available width (undefined width) causes an item to take up whatever width is available
  2. Percentage width/height causes an item to take up a percentage of its parent’s width/height
  3. Flexible height (undefined height) causes an item to grow and shrink to fit its content

Sometimes it also helps to define a maximum or minimum value. Pages normally default to having a maximum width: if you view them on a narrow screen, they will shrink to fit - but if you view them on a wide screen the paragraphs won’t become so wide that they are difficult to read.

Hi!

I hope you all had a good Christmas holiday and a funny move into the new year!

I have now gone through the tutorial again, fixed the font names and centered the text in the text field in the header-container.

I centered the text in the header, but aligned the text in the footer to the left. The latter is not rendered in the browser, the text in the footer is centered as well.

And the Left-panel and Right-panel items look like in the Tutorial - in my FW editor. But in the browser, they still extend below the footer. The height of the pagebody-container IS set to Flexible. ??

I’m not sure why this is. If you go to the non-master page and select “Reapply Master”, does this fix it?

And the Left-panel and Right-panel items look like in the Tutorial - in my FW editor. But in the browser, they still extend below the footer. The height of the pagebody-container IS set to Flexible. ??

Have you applied the Auto Clearfix Action (see end of tutorial)?

Hi Jeremy, thanks for your reply. - It looks like I have lost my attempt to follow the tutorial, so it will take me a while to repeat it and follow your suggestions. Kind regards - Hening
