Fireworks CS4 and the Shifty Text Box

Posted January 23, 2009 by senocular

If you've been using Fireworks CS4 with text lately, you may have noticed a little issue where the bounding box of the text will sometimes find itself floating away from the actual, visible text. OK, it doesn't really "float" but sometimes its obvious that they somehow no longer match up. There have been a lot of changes in the text engine in Fireworks and this one is a sad side effect (bug) that snuck into the release. Luckily, there's a fix for this issue on the exchange. Check it out: Re-sync Text Bounding Box.
