    Viewing items outside document area

      Just got Fireworks 8, and having a problem. Say you make a new file 400px by 400px... The rest of the window (the grey area). How can I be able to view that area. In fireworks mx I used to place items there that I wasn't using but wanted handy. How can I make that grey area so that I can place picture on it, but wont actually be included in the actual export .jpg....My fireworks mx did it fine, but they must have changed something...

      Let me know...
      Thanks,
      J

          J,

          As far as I can remember that area has always behaved the same. You can
          put objects out there you just can't see them. If you do a Select All it
          will show you the points of all your objects including the ones in the
          grey area. That is how I find them.

            No, this is working as designed and has not changed since Fireworks 1.
