    I am having trouble with FW CS5


      How come when I paint a stroke and I choose a texture, nothing happens?

          If you're using the Brush tool—which is a bitmap tool—you'll need to select the texture first, and then start painting; the texture cannot be changed after the fact. If the texture still isn't showing, try increasing its % or softening the edge of the stroke in the Properties inspector, and then try again. (You can also make more advanced modifications to the brush using the Edit Stroke button.)


          If you're using a vector tool—like the Line, Pen, or Shape tools—then you can modify the stroke properties after the fact, including texture.
