Chapter 14. IMPORTING > Importing Vector Objects

Importing Vector Objects

Fireworks can also open artwork created in vector-drawing programs such as Macromedia FreeHand, Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw. This lets you use the more sophisticated tools in the vector-drawing programs; the vector artwork you then import into your Fireworks document retains its editability.

To set the size of imported vector artwork:

1.
Choose File > Open and navigate to choose the vector file. The Vector File Options dialog box appears 5.

2.
Use the Scale control to import the art at a specific size relative to its original size.

or

Adjust the width and height fields to change the size of the art to fit a space.

or

Choose the resolution from the default setting of 72 pixels per inch to change the size of the art.

Tip

The same choices are available if you choose File > Import to add vector files into an existing Fireworks document.
