    rectangle disappears in jpeg format

    mds33200
      Hi, I used the rectangle hotspot tool to create a rectangle (for a diagram I am making). I saved my .png file, then I also saved it as a jpeg (has to be published in jpeg). When I view the jpeg it doesnt show the rectangles though, below is a screen shot of my window in .png format, and in .jpeg format. Any ideas?

      PS- I also tried .BMP format- same results though.

          can you upload your FWs png file?

            Hi, something else interesting- I opened the .PNG file up in photoshop- the rectangles disappear. I right click the file and press preview, the rectangles also donr show up. They only show up when I open it in dreamweaver.

            Since I dont know how to upload a file to this post, I uploaded the png file to photobucket and did a test- I downloaded the file and renamed it (saved to my desktop) opened it in fireworks, the boxes are gone now. Since the original has the boxes still, it seams fireworks keeps them saved only in fireworks- maybe I didnt create the rectangle properly?

              Ahh I see I should have pressed the rectangle button- I didnt see it earlier. I will have to use that and re create the boxes- tried it that way and it worked, thanks for the help anyways!

                For future reference.

                You can't upload files directly to the news group / forum, but you can do is
                upload it a webpage and post the URL

                  Hi MD,

                  Use the rectangle tool, rather than the rectangle hotspot tool.

                  Aloha,

                  Jerry
