    Problem with Applying a pattern

    andydesigns2 Level 1

      Hi all,

       

      I am just starting out with the Photoshop CS5 trial. I am trying to apply a triangular pattern to a thin rectangular shape. I used the custom shape tool>triangle, then defined the pattern successfully.

      However, when I apply the pattern it partially repeats it along the vertical as well as the horizontal axis. Please see attached screenshot:patternproblem.jpg

       

      I only want it to repeat horizontally, what am I doing wrong?

       

      Also, I am Fireworks CS5 user and am really missing the properties inspector panel which allows you to quickly and esily edit sizes of objects, is there a Photoshop equivalent of this?........at the moment the only way I can find to edit objects is through Edit>Free Transform.

       

      tia,
