hi team,

how come if i make a document in fireworks 8 with a width size of 168.8 px i cant save it and i get the following message: could not save the file.an internal error occured.

but if i change the width size to 168 or a normal size without the dot,then i can save it!?

sometimes i realy need the dot to specify the exact size.is there an other way to do it?

Watch Question



sorry i mean a document size of 168.83!!!!


Have you tried using inches instead of pixels? If you use inches, you can go out several decimal places.





thanks for the idea!to be honest i havnt thought about it to use Inches because i only work with pixels but i did a google search and found a good pixels to inches coverter at  http://www.classical- webdesigns.co.uk/resources/pixelinchconvert.html

but still i cant save it in fireworks somehow?!

here is a example of my input for a document size:

Width 2.34 Inches (168.83 pix)
Height 0.42 inches (30 pix)
Resolution 72 P/I

and this is the message i get afteri hit the save button:

could not complete your request.
an internal error occured.

i hope its enough information!
