    How to create a Faded background

    KansasFiddler

      I'm using Fireworks CS3.

      I have created a new canvas and saved it as a .png. I now want to create a faded background. So I select the gradient tool and define the details of the color, etc BUT when I mouseover the canvas I get a circle with a slash through it pointer and I'm unable to apply the gradient.

       

      What do I need to do with a new canvas before i can start applying the gradient tool to it?

       

      Thank you kindly!
