How does the menu: "Expand Canvas to Fit Objects" work?
« on: August 15, 2007, 10:31:19 PM »
I've got an arrow object added in the screenshot, and the comments text was beyond the orginal screenshot region.
When saved, the region out of the canvas was not included.
I think the "Expand Canvas to Fit Objects" menu was to fix this.
But it didn't work, nothing changed.
Anyone got idea on this?
How to use the menu?
Thanks~

you have got it exactly right, that is the purpose of that menu item. but it doesnt seem to work perfectly -- text boxes attached to objects aren't accounted for.  putting it on my todo list.

in the meantime you can work around this by going to the Edit -> Resize menu and choosing to resize canvas instead of stretching:

ps. rather than try to get the size exactly right, i find it's easier just to add a big border all around and then crop.
