I'm missing something, or. . .

But, wait! Being the Fireworks pro that you are, you just correct the simple error, rather than deleting the whole 40 minutes work and starting again, like I do.
Oh mighty Guru! Refresh my thirst for knowledge and let me rest with this matter far behind me.
(Delete doesn't work, Escape erases it all, the Re-do arrow isn't operatable ((is that a word?)) Shift+Anykey makes things dance around. . . oh, woe is me)

its really better draw your selections with the vector path tool. You can undo points youve drawn with that with undo (CTRL+Z) and even move them after they're set. Then, when you got things where you want them, convert that path to a marquee to get your bitmap selection
It was an eye opener to use the vector path tool. Very easy to use.
Unfortunately, I got lost on the " Then, convert that path to a marquee to get your bitmap selection"
I've only spent about 20 minutes on it, and will keep trying later, but for now, I'll read Alan's idea and see how far that gets me tonight.
Thanks for the answer though. Too bad I'm a little:

I don't seem to have that option.
I'm attempting to upload a screen shot with my fireworks on the left and your reply on the right.
Do I have a different version?
PS> I see the pics a little to small to make out. it shows I don't have the 'Convert Path to Marquee' in 'Modify'
help help. . .

Unlike Convert Path to Marquee, though, this will not rid you of your original path, which is actually better since you may want to come back to it later.

Here's the direction I'm going:
1. I have a photo up.
2. I select Vector Path Tool (with the purpose of using it in place of that damn Lasso so I can cut out the main area and paste it in front of the Eiffel Tower or the moon, whatever)
3. I trace around desired area
4. With the path still selected, I try pushing Alt (and/or Ctrl) as I click in the layer box.
5. I'm completely lost, aren't I?

I'll just have to buy Fireworks 8.
Damn, that's annoying. . .
Thanks for the time to help me out though. Appreciate it.

Let the bells of the villages toll, and the haralds blast his name over their loudspeakers. . .
All is well. . . all is well

Can anyone tell me why and how to assure it's activation?
