I found this very weird, when I want to select a texture which is located at the end of the list of textures, or when I want "Other.." file to be used as texture, I have to scroll down one by one, instead scrolling manually at the end of the list.

What do you think about it ?

the pattern and texture selection is something that seems to change a lot during releases. I dont know if anything will change for the next release but they can't seem to get it right heh. I believe it was MX maybe, or before that? that had a scrollbar for navigating these lists. That was pretty ideal. In fact, you can get that now for patterns if you use the color well to navigate your patterns after having selected a pattern fill.

I think I'd personally like a scrolling menu that has all of the menus preloaded with their previews. I made an extension like this (but it only works with installed patterns and textures and not all of those accessible by the app).

That's true! What always puzzled me, is that in TEXTURES, *none* of the normal keyboard keys work (arrow down/up, home/end (for fast scrolling beginning/end of list), even the scroll mouse button!). If this behaviour could be corrected in the future Fireworks, would be nice...

Take for example, when selecting fonts, you get a normal scrollbar at the right, HOME/END keys work, and scroll mouse button, too. And you see a preview of the font, when scrolling, which is nice.

Same could be made for the TEXTURES, I guess?... :dunno:
