Hi,Can you tell me the DW version and the Flexi Layouts version that you have currently installed on your computer?Can you check if your DW site is located on a local network, an external HD or a Phantom HD?I look forward to hear from you.Regards,Elena Tepardea

Hi, That is the reason why it doesn't work, because of the site location. Please make a DW site directly on your HD (Documents folser for example) and let me know if you still have issues.Regards,Elena Tepardea

Hello,It's not working even if you move the site on the local HD?Maybe we can make a desktop sharing session so that we can see what exactly causes that.We are on GMT + 2 Eastern Europe and we work from 10:30 AM to 06:30 PM.Let me know when you are available.I look forward to hear from you.Regards,Elena Tepardea

Hi ElanaI found the problem. When I started using my 'new' imac 27" I started as a new user, then after I set this up I used the 'migration assistant to upload/install all my previous mac settings/docs/applications etc.For some reason, when I am logged on to my 'migrated user' settings, I have to go in and change the access to the folders to accept the 'old' logo in settings and voila, Flexilayouts 2 works fine from the external HD.Was hoping their was a global setting I can change but I will speak to the apple people. As it stands the problem is solved :-)

Hello,I am glad that it works now. However, when loading the site from an external HD you may encounter issues with images. If that happens try to move the site somewhere on the local HD.If you need assistance with anything else, let me know. Regards,Elena Tepardea
