The rectangle tool suddenly started to default to producing curved lines. Seems to default to about a 9% roundness for some reason. would like to know how to reset to it's defaults i.e. I want straight lines again.
That's peculiar. Mine defaults to 0% for every new shape, no matter what the previous shape's setting.
Have you tried quitting the application and/or shutting down and restarting your computer? If that doesn't work, then you might consider deleting your cache and/or preferences. On a Mac, these can be found at user/Library/Preferences/Adobe Fireworks CS6.
Turned my pc today and it appears to be working all okay. Got me stumped may it got bored with producing straight lines for a while. but the restart seems to fixed it . Thanks1.groove25 a reboot seems to be the order of the day
