Export to Dreamweaver question - Macromedia Fireworks

I just created some layout graphics and a set of naviagtion buttons in Fireworks MX (separate doents). I sliced and exported the header and graphics with my optimize window set for GIF. Fireworks exported everything as GIF images. When I try the same thing with the next doent (the group of buttons). Fireworks keeps exporting the buttons as PNG files rather than GIF (optimized is still set to GIF). The buttons do have a rollover behavior, but I would assume that all of the code is contained in the exported HTML file. Is this supposed to be happening? Obviously I ...

    Is this supposed to be happening? Obviously I would prefer to have all of the images in GIF format.

    Make sure you are exporting rather than using Save or Save as.

    I am 100% certain I am exporting. I did just triple check and tried it again to be sure. The optimize window is set up to export GIFs with the adaptive web snap palette. These are the exact settings I have used for other exports to Dream Weaver (other docs always export as GIFS). Over and over again with this set of navigation buttons Fireworks continues to export the images as PNG files. Perhaps I did something earlier in the creating on the doent that is causing this problem?

    Send me a copy of the file and I'll see if I can get it to export properly.

    Problem solved.

    I am not sure what was going on with that particular file. I realized I need to add a button so I decided to make a new set from scratch. With the exact same setting the new doent exports as GIFs just fine.
