SC v2.56.01 - Expand canvas to fit objects
« on: June 15, 2009, 04:26:39 AM »
Hi,

The Expand canvas to fit objects function doesn't work properly. I created an arrow object which is out of canvas. Here is what it happens after I apply the function, notice that SC create a white area in the right http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/8540/scexpandcanvastofitobje.png

I think SC has just expanded widthwise.

And here is the result after save it http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/4227/screenshotcaptortrayico.png

I think it's a bug.

Is there a way to manually expand canvas?

let me investigate -- the other possible cause of problem is that its not taking into account the size of the text box above the arrow.

go to the Edit->Resize dialog, and check the box that says expand canvas:

Arrow object (and its endpoint text "here") is in backward even if I use the send object forward option. Besides, the canvas expands adding white instead of being transparent.

you are right about background not being transparent.. i can add an option for that.

as for the arrow object being back and forward.. im unsure about what it is behind.. oh is that system tray area an object?
