    Layermasks - please help me understand it!

      Hi all,

      I'm really beginning to love FW but there's one BIG thing I can't control - and it's the masking principles.

      Here's the thing:
      I need to paste a picture inside a rounded box. The box is a symbol with 9-sliced scaling. But I can't get to select the scaled box and use it as a mask!?! I understand that my symbol has another original size but I was hoping I could make a selection of it anyway! How do you work with masks?

      I've been looking at many tutorials but they all illustrate the "Paste inside" and "Paste as mask" options but this won't help me here! Please help - masks are such a basic thing!!
