Steal Auto Shape

Posted September 22, 2004 by senocular

Version: Fireworks MX 2004

Steal Selected Autoshape is a command that lets you save a selected auto shape in your Shapes panel. This would be useful if you are using a PNG that someone else created with an autoshape you dont have. This command will let you save that shape to your Shapes panel for future use.

With an autoshape selected, run this command. Provide a name and that autoshape will be added to your Shapes panel with a preview based on the shape selected (you won't need to restart to see the effects; often it only takes a refocus of the Fireworks IDE). All shapes are saved in the user's own Auto Shapes folder in their Application Data directory.
