Does anyone have experience with using a version control system like subversion to handle multiple users editing a set of fireworks documents? My task right now is to apply hotspots to a group of web prototype pages. I'm starting to get the hang of it (I'm really new to fireworks), but the problem is that a designer is still making changes to the documents in parallel. Is there a way to merge in the designers changes while still preserving the work in the weblayer that I'm doing?
No. Merging only works with plain text files, and even then conflicts are a frequent occurrence which require manual intervention. Your only hope would be Adobe's own version control system, and I have no idea if that does anything with Fireworks.
