Changing emitter shape (point, line, etc.)

Hehe. Place one of those emitters on the stage, then R-click on it and select "Make Area". You can also change it to an area emitter in the library by editing the library (r-click in the library window and select "Properties") and changing it to "Area"... where is that exactly... on the "Properties" page of the props dialog, in the box labled "Shape".

Incidentally, converting an emitter's shape is often a really quick way of making a new effect. For instance, take a point emitter that you like and convert it to an area emitter. The effect is often *very* different. Note that you may need to decrease the "Number" property after converting, since non-point emitters tend to add more particles than point ones.
