Fireworks: Auto Shapes

Auto Shapes are not like regular vector shapes in that, once it’s on the canvas, its basic shape geometry are still editable!

You can find auto shapes in the Tools Bar under the vector tools (beyond the basic rectangular, ellipse and polygon) and also in the Auto Shapes Panel (window > auto Shapes).

  • An Auto Shape will have yellow diamonds that you can click on that will let you modify properties of the shape. It’s a live, visual modifier like Corner Effects in InDesign, or PowerPoint, but much more powerful.
  • Since Auto Shape properties are controlled by Java Script, each Auto Shape can have it’s own set of unique settings.
  • The Auto Shapes Panel include some neat production tools, such as Annotation, and File Info.
