**Resizing**

The thumbnail image window can be resized with the mouse at the bottom-right corner.

**Quicklook**

Click on the thumbnail image to make it the key window. Press spacebar to open the quicklook view window. Press spacebar again to close it.

**Drag & Drop**

Dragging a flame file on top of the thumbnail will cause the file to be opened in another Preview window.
Click hold the mouse on the window’s image until a small thumbnail appears. Drag this onto a finder window or Desktop to copy the flame fractal document to that location.

**My fractal image disappeared and all I see is the background color!**

This is called a diverging fractal, where the point iteration process causes the points to leave the area seen through the fractal image. One common culprit is a transform matrix expansion with a large scale factor value.
