Action Usage:

  1. Make sure the CSS Layout button in the toolbar is enabled to ensure you create a layer
  2. Draw a Graphic item onto your page
  3. Import an image or specify the color of the Graphic item
  4. Apply this Action to it
  5. Choose which dimension you want to make flexible (width or height)
  6. Select Keep Aspect Ratio if you want the graphic to increase with the correct proportions. Note: You can’t choose this option if both the height and width are set to be flexible


I couldn't get this to work properly. A page preview with a flexed image showed just a very large version of the original and it didn't decrease or increase in size as I was hoping it would. Not sure what it is supposed to do. Wish there was an example of this to look at. I like the way Flash images can do this, was this an attempt to do the same with regular images? I'd like this feature, but not getting it to work.

Has anyone been able to install this action? This file just opens up in my numbers app and doesn't show up in FW

This action has issues in FW6, because the external CSS overrides the attributes set by the action. The best fix I've found is to extend the item, changing the ID so that the link to the CSS breaks.

Please note that this also removes any other CSS settings, such as vertical-align, so you'll have to put this into the extend IMG STYLE tab.

Softpress support have said they hope to have a fix for this soon.

Version 2.0 of this Action has just been uploaded. Please try it out and report any problems here, or by contacting [email protected] directly.

And version 2.1 now allows for a specific percentage width to be defined.

Installs fine but action pane doesn't give the controls as sated in the action's description
