I've been using Fireworks for years, I've been stubbornly refusing to migrate to Photoshop. But today it's acting up on me after working just fine the other day. I went to open up multiple images and crop them but instead of actually cropping the area, instead it just moves the selected area around or off the canvas. As you can see from the screenshot, I have the export tool selected, but the crop selected bitmap option is greyed out, while the selection tool is clearly visible on the image.
What is going on here? This is the latest version of Fireworks available (CS6, Version 12). I have closed/reopened the image. I have closed reopened Fw. I have rebooted my machine. No dice. Any advice you can give would be GREATLY appreciated.
I have the same problem. This works for me (Fireworks CS 5.1 and CS6 on Mac OSX 10.8.5): Instead of double clicking to crop, use the "enter/return" key!
SMH - just an example of Adobe abandoning an excellent product. So much for support. This was NEVER a problem for me before. Fireworks was always a workhorse.
