This is simple -- I have a blue rectangle as my first layer - thats it, no effects, no nothing just a blue rectangle. I am overlaying that with white text - i tried just doing it in the same layer as the rectangle and I tried it making the text a 2nd layer. No matter what i do when the text is over the blue background portions of the text seem to be hiding. As I move the text box from side to side the hidden text edges reappear then other edges disappear. Its almost like the text is partially blending into the background.
Why??????? This is so easy to do in Paint Shop Pro - what is going on? Thanks.
Thanks. The text already is the top layer. It's almost like the rectangle below has some sort of texture to it (but it doesn't according the properties of the rectangle - texture is valued to 'grain' but the level is 0).
It's weird, as you drag the text across the blue rectangle layer, the text fades in and out. It's not solid.
By the way, this is the Mac Version of Fireworks MX. Any other ideas?
Nah. I think it's a bug in the Fireworks software. What I just found out a few mintues ago was that if I preview the graphic in my browser, everything looks fine. When I go back to Fireworks it looks messed up. So, as long as it displays correctly on the web page, I guess that's all that matters. Thanks for the help.
the problem is a scale problem, check your view / zoom settings they may be at something like 85% this makes text looks distorted doesn't seem to render properly, make your view/ zoom 100% and your problem should be solved.
hope this helps
