    Center grid on Canvas

    tjeods
      Newby here. Can someone please tell me how to get my X:0and Y:0 coordinates back to the center of my canvas? I somehow moved the default location to the upper lefthand corner. Thanks

          The top left corner *is* the default for the X:0 and Y:0 coordinates.

            When creating a symbol the 0:0 coordinates move to the center of the canvas...sorry my bad. Man, I need some more coffee. Thanks anyway

              The 0, 0 point on the canvas can be reset by dragging the crosshair
              where the horizontal and vertical rulers intersect (rulers must be
              visible) onto the desired location (in this case the + symbol in the
              center of the symbol) on the canvas. Double-clicking the crosshairs
              resets the 0, 0 to the top left of the canvas, even in a symbol. That's
              probably what you did in the symbol editor.

              A good technique is to use Guides in Fireworks to help you to align your
              graphics, slices and hotspots.

                Hi Mark! It's so good to see that "enthusiastically" again. :-)
