Mask Commands

Posted October 02, 2004 by senocular

Version: Fireworks MX

A Collection of basic masking commands.

  • Group as Mask Inside: Similar to group as mask but sets mask to be visible (like paste inside)
  • Multiple Paste Inside: Lets you perform a paste inside action on more than one item at a time. Normally, paste inside is only optional when one item is selected. Using Multiple Paste Inside, you can have multiple items selected and a paste inside operation will be performed on each
  • Set Mask by Color: Changes mask in selection to mask its owner by color (or grayscale as see in the properties panel when the mask is selected)
  • Set Mask by Shape: Changes mask in selection to mask its owner by shape (or alpha as see in the properties panel when the mask is selected)
  • Swap Maskee and Masker: Changes a mask to be instead masked by the element it's currently masking
  • Toggle Mask as Inside: changes a mask type between a normal mask and a mask given with a paste inside mask (where the mask as well as the element being masked is visible)

Run Mask Commands from your Commands > Masks menu.
