To adjust the size of torn pattern, drag the control point on the right. Use 1 for fine, and 100 for coarse. To generate a different torn pattern, click the bottom-left control point . To switch torn pattern placements, click the bottom-right control point. Select inside (the default), outside, or both.

Unfortunately, I think that it only works in Fireworks MX. I have Fireworks CS5, and you cannot manipulate the auto shape for the "torn edges" effect. If anyone has any idea of how to use this, please post something under this page. Thanks!

It says right in the required products Fireworks MX, you shouldn't rate it 1 star just because it doesn't support cs3, it never was meant to.
