    rectangle and ellipse

    raggededgge
      Hello All
      I have downloaded a trial version of fireworks.
      I am having a few issues, hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
      When I draw a rectangle and specify a border sometimes I get only two sides sometimes three,
      Also I cannot find the ellipse button anywhere
      Thanks in advance

          You don't tell us which version of FWs you've downloaded? I guess it is CS3.
          For the stroke problem first make sure you are viewing your rectangle at
          100%, at lesser percentages the stroke sometimes dissapears. If this is not
          the problem I suggest you zoom to a higher % and see if the stroke appears.

          If this still doesn't work I suggest you read the thread below (Stroke
          Option Confusion) posted on the 26th and see if any of those suggestions
          help you.

          The Ellipse button is located by Hovering over the Rectangle button which
          should produce a drop down menu with all the other shapes available.

            If you press and hold the mouse button down on the "square" tool, the circle/ellipse tool pops out as an option. I'm not sure what you mean with the border issue? Is your zoom level set at 100%? Can you post a screenshot of your problem?
