    Text Mask

    Simslib5
      I'm having trouble doing a text mask with Fireworks 8. With FW 2004 MX, you typed the text over your image, Edit-Cut, Edit-Paste as Mask.

      When I do this in FW8, I can do everything to the cut, but "paste as mask" isn't an option.

      What am I doing wrong? Can Fireworks 8 NOT text mask?!? Help??

          Select the text and the image then Modify > Mask > Group as Mask.
