    How do I work with this shadow feature?

    Level 7
      Hello,

      I'm designing my first website layout with Fireworks (have used CorelDRAW
      for 3 years). I'm trying to put a drop shadow on a rectangle and am having
      trouble. This feature seems to be unlike the drop shadow in Illustrator,
      CorelDRAW, etc.... I went to Commands / Creative / Add Shadow. The default
      is a strange looking linear shadow that skews off to the far right. All I
      want is for the shadow to create an even small glowing effect around the
      outside edges of the rectangle.

      Thanks for the help.

      Beverly

          Click on the Live filters button [+] on the Property inspector and
          choose Shadow and Glow > Drop Shadow.

              if you have fireworks 8, click on the properties , live effect, shadow and glow, then solid shadow
