Open an image to the size of the image.

Oct 17, 2010 9:55 AM

I know this is hard to describe. I have a new iMac 27"


Each time I open an image in Fireworks it opens with a big gray background which doesn't allow me to see my desktop or other programs like Dreamweaver. When you open an image in Photoshop it opens to the exact size of the imagem left hand corner and size it but is there a more efficient way?


I know I can manually grab the botton


Can this preference be set in Fireworks.


I have enclosed a reduced size of my screen to let you see what I mean.

    Click on Window and look at the fourth item in the menu that opens (Use Application Frame) to see if it is checked. If it is, then click on it to dissable it.

    In some instances, Fireworks remembers the last size you have set a document to. Make sure that each time you close a document you are viewing it at the 100% size.

    You can also try pulling the window's tab away from the tab bar and releasing it.  That should switch it to

    a smaller, independent window.  I'm not sure if there's any way to make that the default.
