That's odd. What version of Fireworks and what operation system are you using?
Have you tried the basic fixes like quitting and reopening the application, or shutting down and restarting your computer? Do those have any effect on the problem, or is it a permanent thing?
Have you tried using the Info panel to view this information?
Version of Firework is CS5 188.8.131.52, on a mac 10.6.8
Yes. I have shut the computer down and restarted and it hasn;t solved it unfortunately.
I hadn't tried the info panel. That works! Thanks.
