    Fireworks CS4 graphic not flipping

    Level 7
      I've downloaded the trial of CS4 FW and so far I like it. One of the things
      I am doing right now is simply manipulating graphics that I need. So far,
      whenever I right clicked on a graphic in FW and chose "Transform > Flip
      Horizontal/Vertical" that is exactly what it did. FW CS4 does not. I've
      tried it with simple logo graphics (gif or jpg) on a new canvas, created
      vector shapes and tried to flip those, and opened existing png's from CS3
      ... it will do everything else just nicely, but it will not flip a photo or
      any other graphic on a canvas. I opened the older version of FW and it will
      flip everything as expected.


      Help is not very helpful in this regard, so, what is it that I am not
      "getting" here?

          What OS are you on?

          Windows here, and the Transform (both Flip options) work just fine for me in CS4.

          Just a shot in the dark, and quite obvious, but I'll throw it out there, but are you certain that an Object is selected.

            Vista Ultimate ... your shot in the dark is appreciated, I tried this for
            about 30 minutes as I am always unsure these days that I haven't forgotten
            some small and vital part in whatever I am doing ... the object is selected.
            Unfortunately for me this endlessly reproducible, no matter what object I
            select.
            Weird

              Try Window > Toolbars > Main
              Select on Object and use the last two command icons on the Toolbar to see if they work?

              If still not operational, close Fw, then remove your Preferences file in the
              C:\Users\['User Name']\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Fireworks CS4\English folder and restart Fireworks. The preferences will be recreated.
