    Scale image

    ronhagley
      Hi,
      At a college where I teach the image editing software is Fireworks 8. I need to be able to resize or scale an image to a specific width in pixels, however when I select scale the properties box does not appear to offer the ability to retain the ratio of size. I can alter the size on the picture by dragging the control nodes but this does not provide info on the actual size. I'm sure I saw a box on the properties area which enabled me to lock height width ratio and alter one dimension when I used this program before, however this seems to have disappeared now. What am I doing wrong please?
