    BMP 8Bit export issue - Can't force to use full color range

    Knubbi Level 1

      I want to export to BMP 8 bit (to save file space compared to BMP24) but Fireworks cannot be convinced to take advantage of the full range of 256 colors and only uses 80 colors of a smooth gradient, leading to a ugly choppy gradient fill.

       

      Here is a video of the issue: http://screencast.com/t/Zjk2ZTc4OT

       

      Any help would be very much appreciated. Is it a bug?
