can't see grey/white transparent background - Macromedia Fireworks

I have Fireworks that came with the MX 2004 suite. I have it installed at home, and at work. At home, everything is fine. I work on a project that has a transparent canvas, and I see grey/white checkerboard. But...at work, that does not appear. Any idea how to fix it? Aaron D. Campbell http://campbells.dikaios.net...

    Make sure that on the "work" machine that you have the canvas color set
    to transparent. Also, If you are exporting the image as anything other
    than a native Fireworks doent and transferring it to that machine,
    the canvas color will usually default to a FFFFFF color.

    I noticed something else weird about the problem...if this is a bug...could someone point me in the right direction to report it?

    I'm attaching a gif* file that shows what happens when I bring up the right click menu. If you look in the shadow of that, you can see the grey/white checkerboard. However, the whole canvas should be like that.

    *the gif is zipped up...as the message board doesn't allow you to upload gifs or pngs

    When I look at the image you posted, the whole canvas as shown IS the grey
    and white checkerboard. Maybe it's your eyes?

    I am not sure what you are seeing, but the entire canvas of the image you
    zipped IS the grey/white checkerboard, so it is difficult to understand your
    complaint.
