The other day, I came across a rather annoying bug in Fireworks - This image helps explaining it:
1. The Green Rectangle lies on top of the red one and has its blending mode set to "Multiply"
2. If i select the two rectangles and convert them into a symbol, the blending mode is not shown anymore - but if I doubleclick
the symbol, the blending mode shows again. Is this reproducable?
It's a well known limitation of the software.
Ok, as I am new to FW, I didn't know that. Thank you for letting me know.
