Unable to subtract pixels from a selection - Macromedia Fireworks

For some reason, I am unable to subtract pixels from a marquee selection using the ALT key. I can see the negative sign next to the cursor, but the selection is never made, nor is it punched out. This is the case for both Fireworks MX and the trial version of FW 2004. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks...

    Hello,

    I can subtract pixels from a Marquee selection by holding the ALT keye while
    doing my selection. This is for both MX and MX 2004 versions. What is your
    operating system? How much RAM do you have on your machine?

    I hope this helps.

    Sorry about the long delay!

    I am using WinXP Pro with all of the updates and I have 512MB RAM. I'm not having any problems adding to the marque selection using the CTRL key, only subtracting using the ALT key. When I try, nothing happens.

    Strange!
