I am trying to convert a bitmpap image into a vector bu using the marquee tool.
I then use the command select>converting marquee to path to make the transformation.
The only thing that happens is that the shape i created with the marquee tool just takes the color of the fiil which is displayed on the property inspector.
No conversion seems to take place.
It's behaving as expected. Fireworks is reading shape information from the marquee, but not color information. You need to add the color to the new path manually. The Convert Marquee to path operation wasn't intended to vectorize whole bitmaps like the tracing functions in Illustrator and Flash.
I did my job with the magic wand tool.
I manage to convert the bitmap to a vector with this way.
After i selected the area of interest with the magic wand tool the i went to select>comvert marquee to path.
