I'm brand new to Fireworks and just downloaded the trial version of CS5 a couple hours ago. I hunted around and watched some of the tutorials but haven't found an answer to my question so I'll take the easy way and ask here!
I've got an existing png file I need to modify to use as elements to a website I'm building in Dreamweaver. There are a couple vector based boxes that I need to change the dimensions of. They've got rounded corners and a stroke border. Question: How do I simply lengthen the width of these boxes without changing the shape of the corners?
Use the 9 slice scaling tool or you can trying adjusting the dimensions numerically in the Properties panel. HTH
Jim, double clicking on the objects didn't work for me. Here's what I had to do:
1. select the object w/ black pointer
2. go to Modify > Symbol > Convert to Symbol
3. specify as graphic and enable 9-slice
4. change the width numerically in the properties inspector.
I never said to double click on anything. I said to select the object and use the 9 slice scaling tool. This can be used on any object without converting to a symbol. You'll find it located with the other scaling/transform tools in the tools panel.
