Background Rectangle Auto Shape

Posted March 28, 2004 by senocular

Version: Fireworks MX 2004

Background Rectangle quickly creates a rectangle that fills the entire space of your document when added.

There is only one control handle for Background Rectangle. When clicking this, it simply resets the rectangle to fill the space of your Fireworks document's background should you resize or in other way change it. In holding the CTRL or COMMAND key while pressing this handle, the background will also reassign itself to the currently selected document line and fill options. Otherwise, it will retain the style it currently holds.

This is a simple autoshape that just makes it a little easier to add a custom background to your document when the options for the canvas color just don't cut it.
