I'm using an old version of Fireworks MX on a Dell with Vista Business SP1, and am having problems creating a gradient fill, something I had no problem with on the old machine.
I have an empty 1000x90 canvas on which I want to apply a black-to-white gradient. A 150x90 logo with a black background will overlay the left end of the banner, so I want to start the ramp just to the right of where the logo will be.The problem is that no matter how I try to exit the fill options dialog, it reverts to a solid fill. I'm wondering if I've simply forgotten something, or if this is a Vista issue.
Here what I do:
Is anyone using this version of MX under Vista, and gotten the gradient fill to work?
