    FW8 - turn background color into gradient?

    Level 7
      Is there any way to turn the background color into a gradient. Right now
      I'm making a box the size of the canvas and coloring it with a gradient and
      then sending it to the back. I thought in the older version of fw there was
      a "more options" selection when selecting a background color. TIA for your
      help

          No way that I know of to turn the Canvas colour into a gradient. However
          there's nothing to stop you adding a rectangle the size of your canvas and
          giving that a gradient fill.

            Sorry BG, I read that in haste. I don't recall any option other than a solid
            colour for Canvas backgronds, at least from FWs 4 upwards.

              Hi Peter:

              Thanks for the response. I just went into one of my old versions and it
              appears I was remembering something that was never there. That would be a
              nice feature if they could do it. Thanks again.
