      Hello Friends:
      I am not an expert at Fireworks. I must have hit something and do not know how to return it back to the way it used to be. Whenever I try to import an image now, I get the following message SEE HERE which makes it very difficult for me to do what I need to do. Can anyone tell me how I can undo this message. Sorry if this is an easy fix, but I am new to all of this. Thank you kindly.

          Without knowing what you are trying to do?

          I would click OK and if that spoils what you are trying to do you can Ctrl+Z
          your way out of it by going back one step at a time. I think the default is
          25 steps.

            Thank you Peter for your response. I have a large image with a lot of text in it. The image is in .gif format. I am trying to import an image of a small arrow to place on the larger image. This will help the visitors see where I want them to read. In the past, whenever I have tried to import an image, it let me. I never got this message before. Now, when I try to import, it gives me the message listed previously, and I cannot apply it as I would like. I hope this gives you enough information, and thank you.

              Your export format is set to Animated GIF. If you are working with an
              animation, then choose OK and allow FW to add the extra frames. If you
              are not working with an animation, then change the export format to GIF
              in the Optimize panel.

                Thank you Linda. You are correct, it is not an animated gif, just an gif. I am new to this, so I apologize for the following stupid question. Where is the 'optimize panel'? Sorry and a big 'duh' from me.

                  From the main toolbar, choose Window > Optimize.
