In Macromedia Fireworks 8 and earlier, you could use the Library panel's Options menu to export symbols to a PNG file. Then using Edit > Libraries, you could import those symbols by navigating to the PNG file that contains the symbols.
In Adobe Fireworks CS3, the Edit > Libraries workflow has been replaced by the Common Library panel. This article describes the Export to Common Library extension, which helps you migrate your legacy Fireworks libraries to the Fireworks CS3 Common Library. The Common Library panel displays the exported symbols contained in the Common Library folder.
Special thanks to Eugene M. Jude and Vishakha Vaidya for all their help and support developing this extension.
